Choosing wedding reception catering is a major decision. The food that you serve at your wedding will be one of the highlights of the day. This is why it is so important that you take the time to make sure that you hire the right caterer for your special day. Here are a couple questions you should consider before you hire the caterer.
1. How Many Weddings Will They Cater Over The Weekend Of Your Wedding?
It is important that you have the caterer's devotion to you. This doesn't necessarily mean that you have to be the only wedding that they are catering, but it does mean that they need to ensure that there will be enough staff and help at your wedding. Thus, before you hire a caterer, make sure that they are not overbooked the week of your wedding, and there will be enough staff at your venue.
2. Do They Allow Testing?
Before you hire a caterer it is important that you are able to test the food. If they do not have a facility where you can come and test the menu, make sure you attend an event that they are catering. This will help you to get an idea of what kind of services they provide and if they are the right choice for you.
3. Do They Account For Food Allergies?
If you are serving a sit down formal dinner, it is important that you account for allergies. You do not want to be held liable if someone is exposed to a dangerous food allergen at your wedding. Thus, you should discuss with your caterer options for those with food allergies. Then you should make sure to have your guest RSVP any allergies that they might have so you can be prepared.
4. Will The Caterer Oversee The Wedding Day?
Some caterers will simply drop off the food and allow the wedding coordinator to take over. Others will actually bring staff and serve the food. What you choose depends on the type of wedding you are having. Regardless of if you are serving a desert buffet or a full sit down dinner, you will need to have someone managing the food. If the caterer will not be there, you might need to hire a wedding coordinator.
By addressing these questions early on, you can make sure that you getting the best caterer possible so that the food can be the highlight of your special day.Share

Hello, my name is Kate Greene, and this is my blog about food services. I'm a mother to four children, and keeping my family healthy is how I got interested in food services. When my children eat their lunch in the school cafeteria and when the whole family eats out at a restaurant, we depend on food services. These companies allow individuals to make healthy food choices while eating away from home. Food service companies distribute truckloads of food products every day to various restaurants, schools, hospitals and cafeterias. Reading my blog will help you understand the value of this service and how it's so important to everyone who eats away from home.
