The Perfect Caterer Works For You
One of the things I’ve seen from bad caterers for years is their insistence that they do things their way. “I’ve been in the catering business for 24 years and this is the way it is always done, so this is the way we’re going to do your wedding because it’s a tried and true method.” I’ve heard versions of that throughout my life – but the real caterers, the ones that you want to have serve your guests, are willing to do the things that you want. If you start hearing language such as “this is the way I always do things,” just walk out the door.
The Perfect Caterer Has Options
There are many talented caterers out there that make great food, but the problem is that they make only one or two different recipes. So how do you find out if you’ve got the perfect caterer? They will ask about any food allergies your guests might have, any diet requirements, religious requirements, and some will even go as far as to ask about personal preferences. Caterers like this can be hard to find, so when you do, snatch them up!
The Perfect Caterer Makes Adjustments
I’m all for utilizing small businesses, but a caterer should also be sensitive to your budgetary needs and be able to alter their menu to be able to take care of your needs. Sure they might have a fabulous horseradish sauce for the prime rib and they normally hand out five varieties, but maybe they can just offer two. Things like that.
