After choosing a date and venue, the next major decision in the wedding planning process is choosing what vendors will help you create your dream wedding. Today we’re focusing on catering—because what’s a party without some good food?
When choosing a caterer, it’s important to already have an idea of what you want and need from them. How much food do you need to feed your guests? Do you want a waitstaff to serve them, or will they serve themselves? Is your proposed budget reasonable for the services you want and for the number of guests you’ll have? These are all good questions to ask yourself—and anyone else involved in the planning process—before choosing a catering service.
Once you have a clear idea in mind, it’s time to find a caterer that can make that idea come to life—and the “right” caterer is easier to find than you think! Just remember, don’t make any decisions without asking plenty of questions first.
