Easy Wedding Catering Checklist: What You Need to Know

Planning a wedding is an exercise in list-making. There are guest lists, song lists, lists that outline timelines, and a host of related and unrelated tasks that you sort out on paper. Working with the right wedding catering expert can significantly reduce the anxiety, frustration, and time you spend on tasks that someone else could handle. Your wedding should be fun; Low Country Catering is here to tell you that it does not have to be drudgery.

The Ultimate Wedding Catering Checklist in Four Easy Steps

  1. Set a date with Low Country Catering. In fact, you might want to set multiple dates. Maybe you host an engagement party and want us to provide the food. Next, there is the rehearsal dinner. Finally, there is the wedding reception. Planning these dates ahead of time creates a workable schedule for everyone.
  2. Let’s talk style. Are you the formal sit-down meal kind of couple? On the other hand, are you more of straight-down-Peachtree-Street-buffet folks? Narrow down the types of food choices that would delight you and your guests. To put it in other words, do you prefer sausage stuffed boneless quail or quartered barbecued chicken?
  3. Decide on the rental items. Low Country Catering arranges the rental equipment. This is one less phone call you have to worry about. Please tell us what you like, what you do not like, and what is an absolute must-have. Colors are important, too! If you need help with making the decision, just ask. This is not our first rodeo.
  4. Leave the service to us. We also arrange for bar service and staffing. Once we know how many people you expect, we ensure that there are plenty of servers to keep the food coming in quickly. With hospitality worries out of the way, you can focus on what matters most: dress shopping.

How to Make the Working Relationship Smooth

Wedding lists change. This is also true for the expected head count of guests. Because we base our food preparation on your information, it is a good idea to ask for RSVPs early on. Moreover, please specify the time of the festivities so that we can plan to have the food fresh and ready when you are sitting down for the meal.

The Little Extras

Many clients have enjoyed presenting their guests with a printed menu that spells out the food options. It is not necessary, but it is an elegant option. Moreover, it becomes a lovely keepsake for the moms who are working on your scrapbooks already. Consider also providing guests with a food-themed present to thank them for attending your party. Options could include heart-shaped cookie cutters or reusable chopsticks.
