Choosing a caterer is a key part of your celebration. Whether you choose to bring in your own food, hire an experienced caterer or something in between, you need to think carefully through the logistics. Who will plate the food? How will your guest get through the line in a timely manner? Who will serve the cake? Will there be enough food?
Before interviewing a caterer, do careful research and have a list of questions for them. Interview more than one caterer. Be sure to arrange tastings and have all details are spelled out in your contract. Some of the most crucial details are whether there will be enough servers, whether they can serve good food in a timely manner, and whether they will arrive on time. If you have concerns, talk to your coordinator or your other vendors as they should have valuable insight and recommendations.
