Three Things To Ask A Caterer Before Hiring Them To Cook For Your Wedding Reception

When you plan a wedding, it is important to take the time to hire a great caterer to create delicious meals for your guests. It is important to take the time to ask any potential wedding catering service a series of questions to ensure that they can accommodate the needs of your wedding perfectly. The following guide walks you through a few questions you need to add any caterers who you are considering for your wedding.

Ask About the Variety of Food Options the Caterer Serves

When you serve food at your wedding reception, you want to be sure that you have a variety of options available. There will more than likely be some guests at your wedding who are vegetarians and there may also be children in attendance. You need to be sure that the caterer you hire is able to provide your guests with a nice selection of foods to choose from when they come to your wedding.

Ask What Services the Caterer Offers

When you hire a caterer, it is important to know what services they offer with their catering. There are some caterers who have servers that they hire to serve the food to the guests. Other caterers do not. Some caterers also have dinnerware and silverware that they provide with the food that they serve. Knowing what is included in the overall cost of the catering will ensure that you know what additional costs you will have to spend to make your wedding perfect. If they are going to provide servers for your wedding, be sure to specify if you want them to wear uniforms or not.

Ask What Days and Times the Caterer Is Available

There are some caterers who have a restricted schedule. They may only work on the weekends and may choose that they do not serve food after a specific hour at night. Knowing the availability of the caterer before you hire them allows you to be sure that they are going to be able to serve food at your wedding on the exact day at the exact time you need them to serve it.

It is best to narrow down the selection as soon as you can so that you can be sure the caterer will be able to work on the specific day that you need them to work. You need to let them know how many guests you plan to have at the wedding and if there are any dietary restrictions that they need to know about.
