Planning a wedding is one thing, making it successful is another thing. Wedding organization is one of the hardest things a human can ever do. That is why you cannot leave anything for chance. It is important to be detailed in everything you do.
Many people attend weddings just because of the food. You will be surprised your wedding will be judged as successful depending on how good or bad the food is. Therefore, as you plan with the companies, make sure you ask all the questions necessary. Which questions should you ask about wedding catering companies?
What’s your availability on my wedding date?
While this question is in a general form, you need to make it specific to your case. Instead of “my wedding date”, you should mention the exact date your wedding will be conducted. Normally, it is the first question people ask. You need to ensure they are not fully booked before you may proceed to ask other questions
What are your charges?
It is always good to go straight to the point. That is why you need to ask for the catering company’s price quotation as early as possible. Let it be clear so that you can compare their prices to your budget and weigh your options.
What food options do you have?
By the time you are reaching out to a catering company, you must have a rough idea of the foods you would like your guests to eat. As you engage the catering company, seek to know what food they offer and if they have a list of foods you want. This question can be asked before, after or together with the question of the charges.
Do you consider people on diet?
It is rare to find a crowd without several people on a diet. Ask the company if they have options for such people. It is important for guests with dietary restrictions. They will never forget you.
This is my budget, what do you recommend?
The catering company has worked with different budgets and they know what’s good for you. Engog England is one of the best sources of recommendations. Ask and you will be advised on the best way forward.
Ask if the catering company makes and cuts wedding cakes. If they do, it’s a plus. If it doesn’t consider other options.
Apart from food, do you have any additional services?
Catering companies offer food and drink services and additional services. Be keen to find the best customer care services.
Is there a fee for cake cutting?
It is also important to know whether the catering company charges a fee for the cake cutting. Some companies do while others don’t. The choice is yours on who to settle for.
