Wedding catering plays an important part in the wedding day and you want it to be memorable. Here are Yorkshire wedding caterer Blue Pepper Catering's top tips for getting it right:
Budget. A good wedding caterer will work to your budget, whether modest or blowout, but you do need to know a figure before you discuss menu options. Simply divide your budget by the number of guests so you have a price per head to discuss with prospective suppliers.
Format. Consider your preferred style and timetable for the wedding day. Are you planning a seated meal or a buffet? Will you have two courses or three? Or something quirky like a hog roast?
Quotes. It's a good idea to get quotes from three different Yorkshire catering companies. Make sure you have them in writing or by email, not just over the phone.
Experience. Assuming you've already decided where you're tying the knot, make sure your chosen provider is familiar with it. Find out if they've worked there before and if they know how to get the best from the setting.
Reviews. Your venue or friends may have recommendations for a wedding caterer. You can also check online for testimonials and feedback. Consider the firm's credentials and the experience of the chef(s).
Licences and certificates. Check the company has the appropriate legal requirements such as Food Hygiene from the Food Standards Agency and a licence to sell alcohol.
Staff. When comparing quotes, find out how many staff it's planning to provide. The higher the number, the better looked after your loved ones will be. Ask how many are employees and how many are drafted in for events. Remember, a professional team that works together all the time is likely to be slicker.
Sampling. Good caterers will give you the opportunity to try selected dishes to help you make your choice.
Instinct. If you find a firm to be responsive, friendly, willing to help and keen to make suggestions, then it's likely their passion and service will shine through on the day.
