As soon as you have settled the date of your wedding it is advisable to settle the venue and the caterer as well. Some of the organizations provide you a catering service with a venue. In that case you will have to work with the catering service provided by the authority directly. Also, you can also choose a catering service for the wedding. If you are to choose a catering service on your own, then you must consider these 3 things to make it sure that none of your guests are leaving unsatisfied with the foods-
1. Budget – like everything else you need to select a budget for wedding foods too. Before consulting the catering service do consult the budget with your family. If you are providing a full three course meal, then you should care for the items you select. If you are providing only drinks and appetisers, then you can go for costly drinks. But if you are providing snacks, drinks and finger foods, then you can select item that are less costly. Also, you can search your catering according to your budget. For example, you can search for finger food catering Melbourne in case you are planning to skip main meals.
2. Always check the reputation of the catering service you are hiring- there are many ways to check the reputation of the company. You can ask about in your family and friends for a good wedding catering service or a spit roast catering service, in case you are planning for a spit roast menu. Even you can look into the internet. Moreover, all reliable catering services have their online presence. Check into their customer feedback option. If you are finding good comments, then this is your guy
3. Guest list – Be sure to be specific with the final guest list. Remember that the wedding cake and the dessert do not count in the dinner menu and are not provided by the catering service.
4. Try to match up the menu with the theme of the wedding- what type of theme you are choosing for your special day? Is it a boho chic wedding or a traditional ball room wedding? Are you planning for vintage glam or classic romance or rustic charm of Thomas Hardy? You may have already decided the theme. Just be sure that the menu matches up with the theme of your wedding. For example, the cheese burger and French fries will not go with the traditional ballroom wedding. You need some classic food to match with the ball room wedding.
