FAQ for Couples Seeking Wedding Catering

When a couple is preparing for a wedding, there are tons of considerations and lots of questions to be asked. Here are three frequently asked questions regarding wedding catering.

Do I Need to Think About Food When I Choose My Venue?

Yes, and there are a number of factors to consider. Besides the location of the venue and the number of people you intend to invite, whether or not the venue has a place for a buffet to be set up or individual plates to be prepared and served will determine the type of meal you are able to have onsite.

How Can We Choose a Style for Our Menu?

One of the things you have to factor in is your budget. An upscale meal is going to cost you more than a fun and casual experience. If you have a seated meal, that means servers, whereas buffet attendants will not be as expensive. You can also opt for individual food stations to give attendees more customizable options. It may be a good way to go if you are dealing with a number of guests with food sensitivities or special diets.

What Can We Do if the Budget Is Tight?

By timing your reception properly, you may be able to offer appetizers and finger foods rather than a full meal. Be sure that guests know they should eat before coming, so they don’t think the appetizers will serve as a full meal for all your guests.
