Along with choosing a venue, a color palette and your wedding dress, hiring the perfect wedding caterer is most definitely one of the most important decisions you will have to make. And yet, accidents can happen and sometimes, brides end up with a caterer that is just not suitable for their needs.
To avoid this kind of situations, make sure you don’t make the following mistakes:
· Not checking former clients’ reviews. With the Internet at your fingertips, it would be a real pity not to check out and see what former clients say about your wedding caterer. Take some time, do your homework and you will boost the chances of being 100% satisfied with your catering professional!
· Trying to make everyone happy. Of course, it is more than recommended that you offer multiple dinner options for your guests. However, it will be nearly impossible of your caterer to create a menu that takes your tastes into consideration and has a myriad of variations for every single type of dietary restriction in the world. Stick to avoiding some of the most common allergens (or mentioning their presence in certain dishes), have a vegan menu that works for vegetarians too and serve options that are gluten-free and lactose-free as well.
· Not asking about extra-charges. The dish rental fee, the extra guests you may have to serve, the buffet station chefs, the servers, the bartenders – these services may have to be paid separately. Make sure you ask about these charges before signing the contract, so that you don’t have any kind of unpleasant surprise later on!
