Wedding Caterers – Cocktails Catering
There are a lot of amazing wedding venues out there that don’t come with a caterer or food service, including parks, outdoor tent weddings, and private estates. But just because they don’t have the ability to feed your guests, it shouldn’t steer you away from selecting them for your wedding celebration. Companies like Cocktails Catering have the experience, staff and equipment necessary to cater off-site events, providing not only food but also linens, decor and bar rentals to create a well rounded event. Here are some important things to consider if you ned to hire a caterer for your wedding.
Questions to Ask Your Caterer
What Do I Need?
Food may not be the only thing you need to provide for your guests. Depending on the venue, you may also need linens and other decor for your event. Save yourself from having to find another vendor and ask your caterer if this is something they might be able to provide. As you can see in our featured video with Cocktails Catering, their team not only catered the event but also provided all the linens for the reception tables as well as chair covers.
If food is on the list of things you are looking for, you’ll likely need tableware as well. Cocktails Catering has a variety of different plates, utensils and glasses for couples to choose from that fit the style of their wedding. Be sure to check with your potential caterer as well if they have these items available to rent.
What’s on the Menu?
Dinner isn’t the only thing you’ll need covered for your wedding reception. Don’t forget drinks and desserts as well. Cocktails Catering lives up to their name with a variety of cocktail and bar rental options, and not all are alcoholic! They have a popular non-alcoholic bar as well with some fun options like cotton candy and pop rocks that guests love.
Many couples are no longer satisfied just serving wedding cake to their guests and want to offer another option or late night treat. Cocktails Catering shows in this video the creation of their dessert shooters for this wedding, giving guests a variety of fun desserts to choose from during the reception.
Do You Specialize in Off-Site Catering?
This is important to consider when meeting with a potential caterer for your wedding. While a company may be perfectly equipped to make food for your wedding, are they able to keep it hot or cold? Make sure the company like Cocktails Catering have all the equipment necessary so you don’t get surprised on your wedding day if they are unable to fulfill the job. Additionally, you will likely need servers for your event. Be sure to ask if you have staff so that you and your bridal party don’t end up serving at your wedding.
What Else Can You Help With?
If you are in need of a caterer for your event, you’re likely on the look out for a coordinator, florist, DJ and more. Cocktails Catering has a list of preferred vendors they work with that they know can provide the same level of service they also provide. They can recommend potential vendors to help with other aspects of your wedding, so be sure to check with the caterer you hire to see if they can help you with these selections.
