Choosing Your Caterer

When you talk about a wedding, one of the first things that come to mind is the bride; the wedding dress, the first dance, the walk down the aisle. Although these are important elements of the wedding, there are a number of things that need to be considered in order for everything to turn out perfectly, just the way every bride wants it to be.

A very important decision you will have to make is who to hire as your wedding caterer. There are hundreds of options out there and it might seem hard to choose the right one. Most of the time, the venue you rented for the party will want to offer their own catering services or will recommend someone they already have an alliance with. They might be a very good option if they already know their way around the place; however, it is also important to consider the actual quality of the food, its presentation and prices.

One smart thing to do is asking to try a few options in the menu of a caterer. Most wedding caterers won’t have a problem offering this, and it will give you the opportunity to choose something that your guests will definitely like. Plus, if you want’ to mix up things a little, adding the chicken sauce to the filet, it will be easier for you to get what you want.

Food is one of the most important parts of a wedding and people know that elegant, delicious dishes are usually served at this kind of celebration. You won’t want to let them down so make sure you hire a wedding caterer that offers a solid contract, good prices, and great food. With good food, there’s no way your party won’t be a hit.

Colors, Budget, and Ideas for Your Big Day!

Weddings come in all sizes, shapes, color and even flavors. Once you start planning out yours, you will need to narrow things down as much as possible to start working towards the perfect ceremony and party you have envisioned.

There are millions of wedding ceremony ideas online and it can be easy to get confused about what you want once you’ve seen the perfect wedding at the beach, the small gathering at a wood clearing and the elegant ceremony at the trendy hotel in town.

One of the easiest ways to narrow it down is by determining the number of guests first and the budget you have. Once you’ve done this, your next step should be finding a place you like, within your budget that is available on a date you can work with. Once you have this, you can actually sit down and look over the wedding ceremony ideas.

One classic, simple idea is going with white. Using the color as the theme will allow you to explore options that will turn your ceremony into an elegant moment. Of course, this can be done with any color, or combination of colors, adding joy, tenderness and any number of feelings to the ceremony.

You will also want to think about the music that will play. Will you want to hire a string quartet? Maybe you just want a harp? Or maybe you want a full choir along with the instruments.

Don’t forget to think about the party as well, will you want classic chairs and tables or go with something more modern, with square tables and wooden chairs and bright colors like orange or purple? Whatever you prefer, make sure it is something you will enjoy and something that, once you look back on it, you will feel happy about doing.
