Catering a Destination Wedding
So, you’ve made the amazing choice to have a destination wedding. Congratulations, it’s going to be beautiful and fun for all of your guests! However, you may be experiencing a lingering concern that the food at the wedding will not be up to par, and there will be nothing you can do about it. Never fear— there are several things that you can do to ensure the quality and deliciousness of your destination wedding menu options, right from your own home.
Since you will not be doing a traditional tasting like you would at a catering hall at home, your best information will be the reviews you can find online and maybe some people who have had a destination wedding at the same establishment. Use online review sites, such as Yelp, to search for quality reviews that you can rely on. Also, ask your wedding coordinator at the resort for a list of previous clients and their contact information. You can get the most valuable information from the mouths of those who have already had a wedding at the destination you have chosen.
It has been said that we eat with our eyes first, so why not use this as a reference point in planning your menu. Ask your wedding coordinator for pictures of appetizers, entrées, and desserts that they usually serve at a wedding especially of the more unique, local choices you’re considering. This can help you pick out the dishes you would like to serve at your event. Just remember not to go too crazy with the food! Incorporate a few local choices to keep up with the theme of your destination wedding, but make sure you have some other, more familiar options for your guests.
