Wedding catering: how to choose the best

During the organization of a wedding, there are many aspects to deal with: the place of the ceremony, the location scouting, the choice of the dress. There is, however, another central aspect: the choice of catering for the wedding. Let’s see together how to choose the best.

Catering selection well in advance

The banquet of a wedding is one of the moments that will remain most impressed with the memories of a guest. The choice of catering service and menu must, therefore, be made with care. It is very important to select this service in advance, with the knowledge that this expense will cover about half of the total budget.

The first step to choosing the catering for the wedding is to consider how many guests will be present at the reception. Even if the number is not definitive, it is important to have an approximate list. In this way, the supplier can best develop a proposal for you.

A bespoke wedding menù

When you choose a catering service, pay attention to the wedding menu. The excellent catering changes the menu according to the seasonality of the products and is ready to customize it also according to the tastes of the bride and groom and the place of reception.
This aspect is not to be underestimated, because sometimes it’s impossible to ensure a high quality of some dishes if, for example, the location offers uncomfortable environments.

So if the caterer proposes always the same menu, don’t trust it. It is unthinkable to offer dishes already defined and equal throughout the year!

Catering service provided by professionals

For the choice of wedding catering, pay also attention to the services that offer: number of waiters, set up and mise en place, sommelier and wedding cake. In addition to the kitchen staff, there are many people who collaborate behind the scenes at a catering company. Each of these professionals helps to make the reception live up to the expectations of the customers.

Consider that for the success of a wedding reception the service is more efficient if for every 8/10 guests there is a waiter. In your choice, therefore, think about this, too.

The wedding setup and mise en place

You should also please the eye. For this reason, what makes the difference during the wedding reception are the setting up of the halls or outdoor spaces and the mise en place.

When selecting catering service providers, do not underestimate the importance of the variety of tablecloths, cutlery, and glassware. Everything must be coordinated and in theme with the wedding. The mise en place will be decisive to build the atmosphere and style of the event!

The menu tasting is really important

Listening to advice and tasting are the last aspects of choosing the catering service. Letting a catering staff explain their philosophy, for example how they choose the raw materials and what cooking techniques they adopt, can make a difference.

The success of the banquet will depend on the combination of flavors and the choice of the menu. It is therefore very important to do the tasting and know the chef and the staff. Just as for choosing a location or clothes, customers must taste before making such an important decision!
