Wedding venues and catering your big day have endless possibilities: buffet style vs. sit-down served; three course vs. five course; surf and turf vs. pulled pork sandwiches. Catering outfits promise to make your big day unforgettable. Local caterers have the knowledge, experience and culinary skills to insure that your wedding reception is seamless.
Make sure you know exactly what is offered in your wedding catering package. Most will include the food, flatwear and silverwear and serving dishes. However, you may have to pay extra money for linens, especially if you are particular about color or style. Also be sure to ask what, if any, labor is included in the cost of your catering contract. Don’t forget – an understaffed dinner will be long and the service slow, so be sure that the caterer plans to provide adequate staffing. Also make sure you ask about bartenders – by Colorado state law, they must be “TIPS trained,” so if your caterer doesn’t provide bartenders, make sure you have another plan for hiring them. Be sure that there is good communication between your caterer and the setup crew at the venue of your reception. For example, if you opt for a buffet meal, are there enough tables for the buffet? Is there a cake table set aside? What about coffee stations? These are all logistics that should be addressed before the big day to ensure that everything runs smoothly! Another option to reduce the stress you feel to coordinate such details is hiring a ‘Wedding Planner’ – refer to that section for more information.
