Whether you are planning a large wedding or an intimate ceremony, preparations can seem daunting. Finding a perfect caterer for your reception will ease your planning woes.
A caterer should work with you to create an event unlike any other -- it should be uniquely you, and represent both the bride and groom's personalities. Your reception should reflect your tastes, desires and preferences. On your special day, you should be able to count on a professional, courteous staff who respect the importance of the day. They should deliver a personalized menu, tasty food within your budget and an experience you will cherish for a lifetime. Here are a few tips for finding the best caterer for your Texas wedding.
Ask for Recommendations and ReferencesHave you been to a wedding where you thought the food and presentation was outstanding? If so, be sure to ask who catered the reception. You can also ask friends if they know of a great caterer in your area. You may be surprised to find that the best caterer is not always the priciest!
Getting good references will go a long way toward deciding on the best caterer for your rehearsal dinner and reception. A caterer's food and menu may look good, taste great and be affordable, but if the caterer (or its staff members) has a reputation for arriving late or being poorly groomed (things you won't discover until it's too late), the damage will be irreversible. Avoid reception disasters by requesting at least five references -- the standard in the catering business. Any professional caterer should happily provide you a list of the bride and groom's contact information for their most recent weddings.
