What Should You Ask a Caterer?

Are you tying the knot anytime soon? If so then you may want to check out these 17 Questions to Ask Your Caterer. The folks at theknot.com have put together a pretty intensive list, but here are some of the highlights.

  • Do they specialize in a certain type of food, and can they arrange for a tasting?
  • What is their price range, and is there an all-inclusive rate available?
  • Will they be able to provide tables, chairs, linens, silverware, etc.?
  • Can they include a recipe you provide, such as a sentimental family dish?
  • Can they ask for variations for specified guests such as vegetarian, vegan, or kosher meals?
  • Where is the food prepared, and how long will it travel?
  • Do they do alcohol, if so is there an all-inclusive rate? How about a corkage fee?
  • How about cakes? Do they do cakes?
  • Do they have photos of their work? Just because it tastes excellent, doesn't mean it's going to look great. See photos and get references.

These are just some of the tips the knot offered up. Do you have any others? What would you recommend?

My wedding food was done by the country club where I had my reception. They let us have a sample dinner of what we would be serving so we would know if it was good or not. They didn't let us bring any extra food or beverages though, which was stupid because we had to pay THEIR price for a keg (which was about twice what you could get one for at the liquor store). I did hire caterers for my rehearsal dinner and they did a fantastic job. They set everything up while we were in rehearsal, did all the cleanup, provided exactly what I asked for, and allowed my mother-in-law to take all the leftovers home (embarrassing as THAT was...my mother in law brought in cooler full of Tupperware and packed all the extras up to take home...all my guests were sort of appalled).
