Rochester Wedding Catering
A caterer should be booked at least six to nine
months prior to your wedding day. Before you
meet with a caterer understand your budget, the formality and style of your ideal wedding,
the number of guests, the date and time of your
wedding, and where you would like to have your reception. It is a good idea to ask close friends and family for recommendations, or consult the catering specialists in this
publication. You will want to find someone that you feel comfortable with
handling your event, can easily adopt to the style of your reception, offers good suggestions, is
flexible, and has the experience working with tent rental agencies, florists, musicians, etc.
Before making your final decision you should have talked to more than one caterer. Ask to
sample the menu options you are interested in. Ask for references and pictures of previous
events. You may also want to arrange to visit another catered event to see how it is organized,
to get some ideas, to see how the food is displayed and how much food is available.
Once you have chosen your caterer bring them to the reception site to inspect the kitchen
facilities and to help you design a layout that will be comfortable for your guests (tables, chairs, bar, buffet, gifts table). Also, inform your caterer of the events that will take place throughout the day or evening so they will be able to plan accordingly.
A professional caterer can make your reception a real success and fill your day with pleasant
and lasting memories.
