6 Things to Think About When Hiring a Caterer for Your Next Event

1. The quality of the food. You want to think about what type of food they make and the quality of the food. Does the food taste fresh? Do they use local produce? Do they offer a seasonal food menu?   photo5
2. The quality of the service. While you may be able to find a variety of caterers that can make a delicious dinner not all caterers are equally yoked when it comes to the service. What is their response time during the quote process? Do they respond to you in a timely manner? Do they provide you with options? Typically companies that value you as a customer tend to carry out the same quality of professionalism when they show up at your event as they do during the quote process.

Autumn Wedding Reception Trends

Are you planning a fall wedding?

Autumn weddings can be positively beautiful, with the colorful leaves and cool air. While planning for your fall wedding, opt for a theme that includes rich flavors, warmth, with a splash of crispness.

When it comes to your wedding dress, sleeves are still in vogue — a perfect fit for the cooler autumn weather. You may also opt to blend fall leaves and fall colors into your bouquet, flower arrangements and other decor.

The right wedding catering can transform your wedding reception into a super memorable event for your guests. This fall, it’s in-fashion to opt for a more formal sit-down dinner following your nuptials. Fall brides are choosing warm dishes with lots of hearty spices, fresh veggies and fruits, along with soup and cheese. (more…)
