Do caterers let you taste their food before you book them?
Just wondering if it's standard to taste test a caterers cooking before you hire them. The food is SO important for my wedding and while the people I've been looking at LOOK good, how can I know they TASTE good too?
Is it acceptable to offer these drink choices?
1: 3/4 types of beer
2. One type of cider
3. Red wine
4. White wine
7. Soft drinks (coke, coke zero, lemonade, OJ)
8. Still and Sparking water
Is this enough?
Is it rude to ask guests to pay for their meal?
I personally find it rude, but a wedding I am invited to has done this
Should we have an open bar?
My friends are big drinkers. Can we ensure it doesn't get too messy?
What is your preferred dining style?
Not sure whether to do buffet, food truck style, sit down on cocktail! They all have their benefits and this is the one thing I am vague on
Can we bring in our own caterers?
My fiancé and I are wanting to bring in our own catering people in but don't know how to go about it.
We are wanting a beach wedding.
How old is the cut off for kids meals?
Since kids meals are cheaper, how old does a child have to be before I have to pay for an adult meal for them? I'm trying to decide whether it's worth inviting children at all if I have to pay for expensive meals they probably won't even enjoy.
What are some unique catering ideas for my wedding?
I am not interested in a sit down style meal, and I hate buffets. Is there other ways to do this? The only one the interests me so far is food trucks, but can they feed 200 at once?! Should I have a few? Do most venues allow food trucks?
Are caterers generally willing to incorporate some items you really love?
Or do most just have set packages?
Do many caterers provide vegan alternatives?
A lot of my friends are vegan (30% of our guests) and I don't know how to navigate the food issue as my family all eat meat and will want it.
