Wedding Planning: Tips for hiring your Wedding Caterer

Keep these tips in mind when interviewing caterers for your wedding:
  • Explain your overall wedding vision
  • Inquire on the number of events they cater each year.
  • Are they insured & licensed
  • Ask for photos or sample menus from weddings they have completed if its not shown on their company website.
  • Inquire about tastings & pricing & the number of guests that can attend a wedding tasting. 
  • Assess the personality & professionalism of the Owner and/or Catering Manager. This really comes into play on the day of the wedding.
  • Inquire about their staff attire: YES this is very important & demonstrates professionalism in appearance. There's nothing worse than having a black tie wedding & the catering staff arrives in jeans & a white t-shirt....
  • Inquire about other services they provide: china, flatware, table linen for catering tables, etc.
  • Is there corkage fee if you provide your own alcohol?
  • Is there a fee for cake cutting service?

Happy Planning, XOXO
