The thing about planning a wedding is, well, there’s so much to think about. Finding the dreamiest venue, choosing a photographer that will catch your vibe, getting on top of the latest trends, letting your guests know where to stay close by and a thousand other things. But somewhere near the top of that list, nestled between dream dresses and beautiful venues, the secret to a successful wedding day is all about finding the perfect wedding caterers.
The way we see it, food is an integral part of any celebration, and your wedding is no exception. It's the one aspect of your wedding that your guests will remember the most, which is why you want to find a caterer that ticks every box; one that will provide delicious food as well as an impeccable service, ensure your guests feel comfortable and everyone is well-cared for throughout your big day.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg (lettuce) because the perfect caterer will also work closely with you to design a menu that meets your wants, needs and preferences, taking into account any dietary restrictions or allergies so that your guests get to choose from a wonderfully curated menu that accommodates everyone. And then there’s the tasting session as you sit down with your caterer to try their delicious suggestions, experiment with ways to present each plate and maybe even bring your wedding theme over to your final ideas. Oh the fun.
As for the icing on the cake, you’ll want the best service too. You want delicious food delivered and served on time, by a team of servers that are well-trained and professional, polite and considerate, and able to give your guests the highest level of service.
