Catering is a service that provides all kinds of food and drinks to different types of events, presentations and parties. Usually, it is used by establishments where these services are required, such as hotels, party halls and companies, including the rental of their establishment. Similarly, it is common at birthdays, business meetings and catering for weddings.
Wedding catering includes the same services as a traditional catering such as food, drinks, table linen, cutlery. Also, it can include services of waiters, cooks and cleaning staff. A wedding catering differs from the rest since the bride and groom can choose a personalized service. It consists of the wedding menu, the cake, the dishes and every detail that the bride and groom consider essential.
Apart from gastronomy, a wedding catering service offers the rental of spaces, tents, furniture or entertainment. In this way, the wedding will have all the crucial aspects to be a perfect celebration.
Hiring catering services for a wedding requires previously analyzing several factors:
- Type of menu (special and for children)
- Place where snacks will be served
Setting the wedding date is very important as it influences several aspects. One of them is the wedding menu. The season is important to choose the foods that will be served. In hot seasons, guests will feel better eating light snacks and refreshing drinks while in cold seasons, hot plates and broths are a good option.
Another aspect to consider is the profile of the guests. The couple must meet the needs and tastes of children, adults and the elderly.
The catering service should help the bride and groom decide the elements to highlight the wedding hall. The lighting, accessories, centerpieces, distribution of the tables, details for guests and decoration should create a distinctive and pleasant atmosphere. For this, the bride and groom must decide whether the wedding will be thematic or outdoors.
The price of service for a wedding catering varies a lot compared to a standard catering. It will depend on the conditions and details required by the couple. The menus, decorations, number of staff and guests and quality of services and raw materials will be different for each wedding so the price will vary. The most critical budget to consider is the banquet.
