Congratulations – you’re getting married! It’s one of your life’s most thrilling moments, and it’s going to be a day to recall forever. But where do you launch the preparation from? Do you have a marquee or are you choosing a place inside? What etiquette is there for speeches?

There is a whole host of dos and don’ts for weddings, so it’s your case (literally) at the end of the day and you should schedule it to meet your wishes. We also put together a few helpful ideas in this article that will allow you to make a choice on your wedding food and catering. This can also consume up to 50 percent of the budget, so it helps to get it right. I strongly suggest you to check out the post right here to learn more about this.

  1. This would be one of your key options, please take your time and pick carefully. Wedding Caterers First of all, ask friends & relatives and your other wedding vendors for suggestions. If you have a selection of possible applicants, contact them on their average price range and availability. This will narrow down your options and you may interview them and ask for a tasting. Be sure you inquire for the extra charges that could be involved, such that when the actual bill comes, you do not get a shock. Note, the caterer is a specialist in their profession, but it’s your day, so they need to suit your needs and desires.
  2. Your budget – For any event preparation, this is the crucial starting point. In order to set a budget and adhere to it, you need to get a realistic picture about how much you would have to pay. You may use certain cost-saving ideas to hold the price down and you will always be able to have the ‘wow factor.’
  3. Dietary Conditions – Make sure that you consult well in advance with your visitors if they have any specific dietary requirements. Many decent caterers are able to have vegetarian and vegan meals, although if you have nut sensitive or coeliac visitors, you can find it harder.
  4. Consider the wedding mode – If it is a really formal day, then a sit-down meal is appropriate; if you get married outside, a less formal catering style will be more suitable.
  5. Additional Extras – Weddings will take a long day, so make sure your guests are well prepared with beverages and nibbles. Instead of a complete dinner, if you intend to go down the road of only nibbles, dessert and drinks, then make sure you advise your visitors this at the invitation so that they are equipped, if possible to make preparations themselves.
  6. Your budget is close looking? It would help save money to use your wedding cake as your dessert option.
  7. DIY Food – To make your own feast, you don’t have to be a great chef. Generating a variety of ‘finger foods’ is the best way to appeal to anyone. Carefully pick the recipes; plenty of them just require throwing together the food and can still look beautiful. Remember, you’re going to need places to place them and put them on trays. Enlist a squad of helpers and allocate each of them a number of dishes.

For a great wedding day, holding your visitor well fed and watered is one of the main items. In preparation, part of the fun is to make sure you enjoy the method, especially the tasting!
