You must do your homework
Ask to see their testimonials, check out the website, does it look professional?
Dedicated Catering Manager
Does the caterer give you a dedicated catering manager that you can rely upon?
Self-Catering is just not possible
Many try and many fail. Even if you save money you will lose time-wise. You want to let your hair down and not worry about the food and drink. Try using a specialist wedding caterer like Wise Weddings; you may be surprised how far your budget will go.
Don’t forget Special Dietary Requirements
Remember to be aware of cultural and religious food restrictions and ensure that vegetarians, allergy sufferers, children and those opting for healthy options are catered for.
Have a Theme
If you are having a themed wedding, then co-ordinate your food accordingly. How about a hog roast or BBQ?
Canapés should be easy to eat
Reception finger food should be bite-sized portions. Your guests don’t want to get messy while they are eating.
Some caterers will try to cut costs by compromising on the quality of their produce. Wise Wedding uses only the freshest seasonal ingredients and sources locally where possible.
Check the Tableware
Inspect the tableware, glassware and crockery to ensure that it matches the style of your wedding. Does the caterer offer a choice of coloured linen like Wise Weddings?
Taste the Menu
Reputable caterers like Wise Weddings will organise a tasting for the bride and groom to be. This should give you a good indication of the quality and presentation of the food.
Visit the Caterer
Is the premises clean and tidy? Make sure you can meet the chef. First impressions are important. Does the caterer pass the test of being a professional outfit?
