People dream of planning the perfect wedding since childhood and for many, the food comes as a priority – just behind the dress!
Therefore, you shouldn’t leave this aspect of planning until the last minute. As such, the team here at Perfect Day Caterers have created a checklist so you can get organised.
Do your research
Go in to your catering planning with an idea of themes and favourite flavours so your caterer can create a menu bespoke for you and your guests.
When you contact wedding caterers utilize their extensive knowledge of seasonal and local produce, flavours and ingredients to decide on something you really want! Don’t feel you should keep things traditional if that isn’t your thing! Street food options, unusual desserts and cocktail pairings make for memorable treats on your special day!
Make time for tastings
A dream wedding takes months of rigorous planning. From visiting different venues and trying on dozens of dresses to hunting down and booking the perfect, well-deserved honeymoon. Another important task is finding time to sample some delicious dishes for the big day!
Usually, menu choices will be confirmed with you before your tasting so you know what you will be trying. Make the most of this opportunity and be honest. This is your moment to say what you do and don’t like so that menu alterations can be made accordingly!
Book early to avoid disappointment
You can expect to have an informal conversation with your potential caterer discussing your likes, dislikes and your theme. Following this, suggestions on a bespoke menu tailored to you will be put forward. This should enable you to make an informed decision and it is vital that once you reach that point, you book early to avoid disappointment!
