To-Do List for Pre-Wedding Catering

The wedding catering you choose will determine how your guests feel about the day. They’ll remember the taste of your cuisine for years to come, but will it be a pleasant memory or a bad memory?

Your wedding reception caterer will be there for you every step of the way, reminding you of which decisions you need to make at what time. Your formal contract with your wedding catering company will typically include a timeline.

Here is a brief overview of the couple’s obligations to their wedding caterer so that you are informed and ready.

When should you select the caterer for your wedding?

The majority of wedding planners and catering experts advise making your catering selection no later than seven to eight months before your big day.

However, if your wedding will take place around the holiday season, you might need to book the caterer more than a year in advance. Corporate Christmas parties and other seasonal events frequently organize the catering for the following year during the current season.

The specifics of your menu will not need to be specified at this point, but you will need to decide on the type of service (buffet, sit-down dinner, carving stations, etc.) and an approximate number of guests.

To-Do List for Pre-Wedding Catering Three Months Away

With only three months until the wedding, catering companies must have a more accurate headcount and a commitment to your cuisine.

Give your wedding caterer a count that is 80% of the total number of guests on your guest list.

If your caterer will provide you a tasting, schedule a time for it immediately. After your tasting, you can give the caterer your final menu choices. Additionally, you will need to make your final decisions for anything else the business will be supplying, such as your beverage preferences, linens, etc.

Your catering provider will offer you the exact pricing breakdown and payment structure once you have settled on all of these aspects.

To-Do List for Wedding Catering One to Four Weeks Prior

Make sure your wedding caterer has everything they require from you and confirm the event’s date, time, and venue with them by getting in touch with them. Inquire about the services or information they require from the venue, then plan those needs with your contact at the location.

If possible, send the very last payment before the event. If not, ask a trustworthy friend or relative to deliver the last payment to the reception location.

Verify with the company the deadline for receiving the final “drop dead” guest count. You may be able to make adjustments with some businesses up to 72 hours before the event. Other companies need your final number after a week.
