Chef Vicky,
Thank you so much for the great food and catering service you gave us at our wedding reception. Everything went so smooth and the setup was beautiful. Thank Chef Darrel for the beautiful wedding cake, I received allot of compliments on it. I hope to see you again soon, good luck with everything.
-- Regards, Tina and Kevin Jenil

 

Dear Matt,
It was a pleasure working with you in setting up and executing my daughter’s wedding at The Full Moon Inn last weekend. Your facility easily accommodated the 225+ guests that attended the wedding and reception on Saturday.
Along the same line, would you please pass along my sincere appreciation to Chef Vicky and " My Own Chef Catering" for the wonderful job she did both for me at Saturday’s reception dinner and for the Roberts at their rehearsal dinner Friday night. Both events were well-presented and the food quality and service were excellent. You two made this special event in my daughter’s life something we will always remember. Thanks again for your efforts and for the use of your beautiful facility. --Sincerely, Dick Robertson
President/CEO

Catering is one of your largest wedding expenses for the reception. Start planning early and contact your potential caterer with your wedding plans and ask for references. Don't be afraid to ask, as all true professionals have an excellent track record are more than happy to oblige.

Your plans should include the type of service (cocktail party, buffet or sit-down), hors d'oeuvres, beverages, decorations and an estimated count of the number of guests. The guest count will change as you get closer to the wedding date. Ask your caterer when the final count is due, but make every effort to get your estimate as realistic as possible. The final bill will be based on this count. Don't forget to include the band, photographer, video photographer, and other workers.

You will also want to know how the caterer determines the quantity of food served and the number of servers they will provide and their operating procedures. If you are providing a full meal to the guests keep the hors d'oeuvre count at the lower end. Three to eight pieces are within the standard range.

There are other considerations you may want to bring up with your caterer: Ask about the dinnerware and china they plan to use to insure their quality and suitability. Also you may want to request to taste their cuisine prior to the event. Another recommendation is to stay at the inn or B&B to experience first-hand the quality of their service.

Special care and planning should be given to the seating arrangements. While some receptions provide place cards for all guests, others choose to reserve special tables for the family members closest to the bride and groom plus a table or tables for other members of the wedding party.

Stay in contact with your caterer as the special day approaches. You may have last-minute questions, changes or you may simply want to be reassured that everything is going according to plan. At some point, though, you need to trust your choice of a caterer and focus on other plans.
