As wedding caterers, it’s imperative to ensure that the couple’s wedding remains as fuss-free as possible (at least when it comes to food). While catering for a wedding is no easy feat, we are here to make the process a little less daunting. Listed below are five aspects all wedding caterers should take note of, in order to make the banquet a successful one.
Although you may just be providing the food, it’s equally important to know it. Not only does this add to your professionalism, it’ll put you at a better place to advise on the food items that best suits the engaged wedding, from family recipes to their favourite meals.
In addition to the existing menu, couples may have special requests. Whether it’s customising the menu or following a particular wedding theme, be sure to best cater to the needs of your client, to provide them with a truly unforgettable gastronomical experience.
Cater to every guest
Be it children or the elderly, do offer to have dishes and/or tables that are catered to these two groups of guests. Not only is this a nice way to make everyone feel involved in the celebration, it’ll help score you brownie points with the couple. When doing so however, be sure to have sufficient catering equipment that allows you to prepare for additional tables.
Take wedding vendors into account
Stand out from other wedding caterers by dropping the couple a gentle reminder about their wedding vendors and if their meals are included.
Take note of potential food allergies
Instead of waiting on the couple, it is advisable to ask about potential food allergies amongst the wedding guests. This way, you can prepare the food accordingly and avoid any unfortunate emergencies.
Know the details
From the location of the carpark to the venue’s food and alcohol polices, it’s important to familiarise yourself with the wedding location. Don’t be afraid to sit down with the couple before running through the list of details with them.
