Concern of the Week: Help! No One Likes My Food…

close up

Happy Sunday everyone!

As promised, every Sunday we will post a concern of the week. This week we are talking about your wedding day food. Obviously, this is a very broad topic so I will try to cover the basics. I think it is important as a bride to figure out who YOU are and what you want from your wedding. It doesn’t help if you don’t like your food on your wedding day either. Make sure it’s something YOU like and the rest will follow.

This leads me to talk about your options. Not everyone is going to love your favorite BBQ or corn pudding and that’s okay! We aren’t made to like the same things but if you offer an option like fried chicken or something along those lines your guests will feel pleased with an option.

I know working with a budget is difficult. It’s important to spend within your means. If you want prime rib with a gourmet chef to cater your wedding for 200 people attending – then expect quite a bit more than a traditional buffet menu.  If you can only afford 50 people – by choosing that option- you may need to rethink your catering options.

A professional catering company will be able to offer you several menu choices that will offer a variety of foods for your guests and stay within the budget you give them to work with.

So, the answer to this concern is to make sure you have a clear budget in mind, options to choose from and most importantly – a professional catering company.That way everyone wins.
