Hints and Tips

Catering is an important part in the planning of any event, especially for a wedding or corporate hospitality. Hence a good caterer is needed to help keep the event proceeding in good spirits. A person who has enjoyed a good meal will be in higher spirits than a person who has not enjoyed his meal.

Your choice of banqueting location is important for the caterer. Most venues for weddings and events offer in-house catering themselves or have a shortlist of pre-approved contractors. They do not allow catering from outsiders since they have their own team on whom they depend for a proportion of their profits. Hence you need to be very clear about the catering options offered at a venue before booking. Such limitations are not usually a problem with community venues such as village halls, where you'll usually find some kitchen facilities for hire which can be used by outside caterers even if only for keeping pre-prepared food hot.

The quality of the food served by your caterer is more important than the appearance of your chosen venue! If the in-house or recommended caterer for a particular venue is not up to the standard you are looking for then it is better to change the venue rather than suffer below-par food and service. If your venue allows outside catering you can choose a specialist catering company to suit your precise requirements. Most of the best recommendations will come from friends and relatives who have experience with particular caterers. Think back to parties you've attended and in particular, those where you've been impressed by the food offered. Find out who the host used and arrange a tasting session!

If you're planning a themed event, the catering may well be linked. For example, for a school reunion you might want to consider serving "school dinners" canteen-style! Or, for a beach party, maybe a barbecue or hog roast? Planning an outdoor summer event? How about an ice-cream van?! There are lots of caterers offering a very wide range of styles and prices so there's no need to settle for the mundane unless that's your aim.
