Finding the Best Caterer

Finding the best caterer is one of the most vital parts of wedding plotting. Recommendations from family, friends and co-workers are a excellent place to start. Then select a minimum of 5 to 6 caterers that you want to interview. A excellent place to start is to find their cuisine specialties. A caterer who specializes in Italian cooking may not be the best with an all Asian cuisine menu. Is he/she flexible enough to adapt to your needs? If the bride and groom, for example, are health conscious, can a large variety of pasta and vegetarian entrees be served? These interviews will help determine which caterer is the most professional, enthusiastic and experienced in their field.

Asking for pictures of past wedding receptions and a list of satisfied customers will also help your determination. Call the names on the list, making sure to question if their were any problems, or food and service that was less than satisfactory. Look for attractive and creative buffet designs and table arrangements in the photos of recent events.

The ideal caterer will be able to offer you the following:

· Information about licenses, health permits, and insurance

· Written contract and guarantee

· A fixed price not subject to change

· Deposit and final payment dates

· Terms for refunds/postponement/cancellation

· Food tastings

· Cost of bartender, corkage fees, and liquor

· Cost-per-person of a buffet compared to a sit-down dinner

· Information about the number of staff, gratuities, and overtime charges

· Providing for the wedding cake

· Recommending other wedding related professionals
