Number of guests


It is vitally important that you get your RSVP´s sorted sooner rather than later as you need to know how many guests you will need to cater for. If your wedding is in August, you should have a total number noted down by January at the lastest so you can start contacting everyone.

Quality not Quantity

Once you have decided what caterer you are going for, it is important to not feel pressured to have loads of dishes to impress your guests. It is often the case that more dishes may not taste as nice, it is better to go for a smaller quantity and really work on the tastes of those few dishes.

Guest information

It is important to know which how many of your guests are adults and how many children, as children won´t eat as much and they will eat much milder food than adults. It is also important to note down any allergies or illnesses that your guests have to insure that everyone is safe and catered for.

Stay in budget

It is so easy to get carried away with your wedding and slowly the costs are just creeping up. To avoid this always ensure to keep a detailed receipt of how much everything costs and how much you have spent. Keep in mind things as such as VAT, to be paid if there is a plus for travel, etc.


Sometimes the venue has no kitchen space set aside for preparing the banquet, so it is best to be proactive, and to prepare for unforeseen circumstances that could arise last minute.

Little things that make a difference

Some details shouldn´t be overlooked and you have to take charge of them yourself. You need to figure out a seating plan so you know whose sitting where and how many people are at each table. Everything should be to your liking!

Food tasting

Since it will be your big day and everything has to be perfect, first of all you have to try each starter, main course, dessert and beverage ready to serve. Wedding food can go wrong as preparing dishes for hundreds of people can alter the taste of the dish, however tastings are there so you can see if you like the initial taste of the dish and if it suits your wedding theme and style. Go to plenty of tasting, over and over again to make sure you have the perfect menu.

Last minute changes

Last minute changes are bound to happen as you will find that some things work for you and others don´t. Make sure that you have plenty of back plans available, and other vendors to contact to ensure that everything is taken care of on your special day.
