catering for weddingsYour wedding guests will forget a lot of details about your wedding ceremony such as the colour of the flowers in your bouquet, the songs played in your wedding reception, or the theme of your wedding party, in the months and years to come. However, there is one thing in your wedding ceremony that will be talked about and remembered by your guests and relatives for a long time to come; “a great meal” or a “not-so-great” meal. Keeping in mind the importance of food, drinks, service, and atmosphere of your wedding reception, it makes perfect sense to pay more attention to catering for weddings.

Following are some of our tips from industry experts on catering for weddings that can go a long way to get you closer to your dream wedding:

The Clarity Of Mind | Catering For Weddings

 

You should be very clear in your mind about the kind of food and the style of service that you want to have on your special day. Whatever you decide on the wedding menu, make sure it corresponds well with your wedding reception. You also need to decide whether you want to go for self-catering or want to hire the services of a professional catering company.

The number of guests invited to attend your special day plays an important role in finalising the wedding menu. By having an exact figure of all the guests invited for your wedding day and clearly communicating the same to your caterer will make things much easier for both of you. 

The Diverse Menu | Catering For Weddings

 

Once you have an exact head count of the guests, you can finalise the menu for the day, and while selecting the items make sure you keep in mind important factors, such as allergies, veg and non-veg guests, as well as spicy and non-spicy foods preferences. Generally it is best to go for a standard menu that will satisfy all the palates.

One of the most important things to keep in mind when it comes to catering for weddings is the budget. It is estimated that around 40-50% of the total wedding budget is used by this overhead. So a careful and wise selection of your wedding menu items can have a lasting impact on your overall wedding budget.
