Questions to Ask Your Wedding Caterer

Questions to Ask Your Wedding Caterer

Choosing a caterer is one of the biggest decisions you will make when planning your wedding. Not only is catering likely to be one of your biggest expenses, but the food that is served on your big day will leave a lasting impression on you and your guests. Because it’s such an important decision, there are several factors to consider when picking the right caterer for your wedding. Asking these questions will help you make your choice.

Have You Catered at My Venue?

Venues and caterers have to match up well for your wedding to be successful. Some venues limit you to in-house catering, but when they don’t, it can be helpful to pick a caterer who has worked at your chosen venue in the past and knows the space. This will reduce the risk of day-of surprises, like finding out that loading in and setting up will be more difficult than your caterer anticipated because the kitchen is on the second floor. If your caterer has not worked your venue in the past, he or she should at least visit it with you before the big day to prevent any surprises.

What is your payment and refund policy?

It’s important to know exactly what kind of deposit you will need to make, and when full payment is due. An additional question to your payment policy query should be about the last day you can provide a final guest count. You should also find out what the refund policy is. No one likes the idea of canceling or rescheduling a wedding, but knowing the facts upfront is helpful.

Can you accommodate special menu requests?

Some caterers have set menus with little wiggle room for substitutions, while others are extremely flexible. If you have special restrictions for your menu, such as vegan or nut-free, or if you have specific items you want, make sure the caterer can accommodate them.
