Be it a birthday, an anniversary night, an engagement party or a wedding, and your special day has to be a memorable one. The photographs from the events should make you smile even when you look at it after years. Apart from the perfect planning of the decoration and taking care of the guest list, deciding on the menu is a vital task.
It goes without saying that delicious food will make your event momentous when you find happy and content faces of your invitees. So put in a lot of thoughts and research before hiring a caterer. Not only the food has to taste good, but the caterer also needs to provide the authentic taste of every item ordered.
They should also keep the quantity in mind and be prepared to serve even to unexpected guests. Here are some pro-tips for you to hire the best catering service for your big day.
Is the price quotation reasonable?-
Throwing a party can be very expensive. So before selecting the menu or hiring a corporate catering sit and draw a budget. Count the invitee’s heads and calculate how much you are willing to spend on food and beverages. It is better to have fewer items but quality food. Then seek quotations from different caterers for the same menu. You can hire the one providing the best quality dishes within your budget!
Stick to your need-
Make sure you let the caterer know what the event is all about and what are the expectations you have from him. A right caterer willing to do business with you will invest time in understanding your demands and requirements. He will not push you to offer the items he earns more profit from but will serve you dishes from your choice meeting the purpose of the event.
Check the reviews from his previous clients. It’s just not about the quality of food but also the service you and your guests will receive on that day. You can ask for a reference from your acquaintances so that you do not end up hiring the wrong catering service. You may ask for samples of the menu, taste it, and then make an informed choice.
The contract should be clear-
Double-check before signing the contract paper and see whether all the foods you have ordered are mentioned along with the number of plates, price list, and details of the venue, time and date.
While it may never occur to you that your big event might get canceled due to some unfortunate incident or under an unavoidable circumstance, be definite about the caterers’ cancellation policy. The monetary penalties on cancelation should be stated clearly in the contract paper for both the parties.
Hire the caterer who can be contacted 24*7 via call, text, or email regarding any emergency or last-minute changes. Remember the mentioned tips and settle for the one who can modify the menu according to the latest trend and within your budget.
