Working in catering for weddings and events all over Greenville and Pitt County, NC, we know more than most how stressful wedding planning can be. We work with couples all the time to make sure they have the most positive and stress free reception they can, when it it comes to the food.  That experience in mind, here is our quick guide to planning wedding reception catering.

1. Figure Out Your Style

Before you meet with any caterers, you and your fiancé need to determine the level of formality you want for your reception. Do you want a sit down meal? Do you want a buffet? Do you want a full bar, an area with just wine and beer, or no alcohol at all?

You need to consider all of these things to determine what type of catering is right for you. After you figure that out, you can still talk to your caterer.

2. Evaluate Your Needs

When it comes to your wedding reception, it’s important to figure in how many people you’re serving into your plan. You need to think about how many people have allergy sensitivities, who needs a vegetarian meal, and who needs a vegan meal. Depending on the style of the catering, you need to factor all of that in to determine how much food you’re going to order with your caterer. For more tips on this, check out our guide on ordering catering.
