The food is one of the most significant parts of any wedding reception.
When hiring a catering company for your wedding it is a good idea to ask
any and all questions you may have. You are investing money, as well as
serving a lot of people, so it is important that you know what to expect.
Keep reading for some
questions you will want to ask your caterer.
Ask About the Food
You likely want the food at your reception to be memorable and well prepared.
Find out what kind of food your caterer specializes in, and
ask to see menu options. Will the caterer prepare a special dish, such as a family recipe, that
you provide? Can your caterer account for different guests’ dietary
needs, such as vegetarian, kosher, or gluten free? Also ask whether he
or she will bake the wedding cake or if you need to find a bakery.
Questions About Business
Get to know the catering company and how it operates. Establish who the
main contact will be. Ask about price range and how many people they are
willing to serve. It can never hurt to ask the catering company for references
from previous clients. Caterers should offer you a food tasting prior
to hiring, so be sure to ask if they don’t. Additionally, find out
where the caterer intends to prepare the food.
Other Provided Services
Catering companies will often provide more than just food. The extra services
can make your wedding day much easier. You will want to know if the catering
company has a wait staff, or if you will have to arrange that through
the venue. Will the catering company provide tables and chairs? Do you
need to rent catering supplies? Figure out how much of a role your caterer
will play during the reception.
