The wedding catering is one of the main aspects of every wedding and it can generate a lot of tension and worries around its perfect organization. That’s why we’ve put together the most commonly made mistakes when it comes to wedding catering. Read on and take notes to prevent falling in the trap of these wedding catering mistakes:
Making the wrong decision
The number one mistake when it comes to wedding catering is the wrong decision a lot of brides make regarding the type of catering they want to use for their wedding – self-catering or hiring a catering company. Both types have their pros and cons, but it is up to you to make the right decision. Talk to your future husband and discuss the options with your wedding agent. Don’t be afraid to ask your friends and family for advice as well. Just make sure you have thoroughly thought it over before you make this important decision.
Being “too” original
Yes, every bride wants her wedding to be memorable. Yes, every bride wants to impress the wedding guests with the menu that’s been chosen for the wedding reception. Don’t fall in the trap of creating a super exotic or gourmet menu thinking that this is the only way to impress your wedding guests. Bear in mind that the food at the wedding will be eaten both by your aunt Ethel and your best friend’s 3-year old boy, so going for a too niche menu is probably not the wisest decision to make.
Overlooking the planning part
Whether you decide on a self-catered wedding or hiring a professional do the work, don’t ever underestimate the power of planning, researching, and organizing. Even though your part of the job will be different depending in the option you choose, there’s a lot to do in both cases. So, roll up your sleeves and spice things up!
