Everyone wants their wedding day to be the most memorable one, but expenses make it hard to feel likewise. So, is it possible to reduce the spending, while planning a perfect wedding event? Definitely!
Of all the expenses, the wedding catering costs the highest. Here are some practical tips to ensure that your wedding catering is perfect yet affordable.
Fix the budget: It is important to fix your budget when it comes to catering for your wedding functions. Based on that you can search and finalise the caterer who fits best in your budget.
Go unique with menu: Everyone wants to book a catering service that is different yet affordable. Check what all is inclusive of the package and based on that select the one that suits your taste and budget. Check everything in terms of starters, meals, salads and desserts. Also, if you want to have different stations of world/Asian cuisines, do check that out.
Go bite-size with desserts: By controlling portions of desserts, you will be able to save one-third the price of a full dessert buffet. You may opt for something like tiny chocolate-covered cheesecakes, etc.
Don’t have elaborate bar station: It isn’t necessary to fill the bar with all kinds of liquor. You may include 2-3 main drinks like beer, champagne and whiskey. Or, you may have one or two signature cocktails and give them clever names such that your guests find them irresistible. Also, ask the bar manager to provide garnishes for the drinks. These may include curled lemon and lime peels, orange slices or mini fruit kebabs on toothpicks to coordinate with your wedding colours. These garnishes are often free and they add to the festive look.
Cut down the catering staff: Catering bill generally shoots up due to the labor your catering company provides to the event. Take a close look at how many servers, chefs, or other staff they have allocated to your event on the invoice, and ask your caterer if there’s any way to cut down those costs.
These practical tips can help you cut down your catering cost.
