Ready to select your caterer? having an idea of the food service type you're looking for will streamline your search, help you ask the right questions, and find the caterer who fits the vision you have for your big day!
choose your catering style:
✨drop-off or on site? if your wedding is on the laid-back side, you may be able to manage with a caterer who simply delivers the food and comes back for the dishware.
✨small plates or traditional entrees? guests may do well with a wide range of nibbles rather than having to choose their meal in advance. small plates also allow guests with specific dietary needs ample flexibility.
✨food bar or table service? being served is a luxurious feeling but so is choosing exactly how to build your plate. only you know which vibe suits your vision.
✨passed appetizers or grazing table? there’s something elegant about servers offering bite-size gourmet dishes- but a grazing table is gorgeous too with a mix of charcuterie, crudités, cheeses, fruit, and sweets- it’s beautiful, indulgent, and simple.
things to know:
👉some venues have a list of suggested caterers. if one offers everything you want, this can simplify your logistics.
👉some caterers provide or arrange for tableware, stemware, and even tables and chairs. cutting down on the number of companies you’re working with can smooth your way, but make sure they offer what you want.
👉know how much you can spend and how many guests you expect. this will help you choose the right suite of services to complement your menu.
