Four things to think about when speaking to your proposed caterers 

Posted: 3 February 2023

Think back to your favourite wedding. Do you remember what you ate? We are here to help with our top tips on how to choose the perfect chef and for us, it all starts with the reputation. Here are a few things to think about when meeting with your catering team. 

#1. Try to work with suppliers who use the method of ‘honest cooking.’  Whether you want to use fresh products from family run businesses or locally sourced, where the products are handled with respect and the utmost care, your taste buds will thank you for it.


#2. Are there a few options? Think about whether you would like a formal meal or a sharing platter per table. We have found that the silver service wedding meal is on the decline and in its place are delicious cold cut platters, with fruit and crudites. Gorgeous to look at and of course even better to eat. 


#3. Dessert tables make a great addition to any wedding breakfast. Cute cupcakes, plates of sweet nibbles and crunches all surrounding your wedding cake makes for a great visual in the room and gives the guests the opportunity of picking.


#4. Always cater for the vegan, vegetarians, and those with allergies separately and ask the caterers to take responsibility for this.


TWP Thinks…..

Top Tip

Our best advice for having grazing platters and desserts tables is to include simple elements such a fruits and rices. Not everyone likes to have a massive variety of spices on their plate and the colour palette that this brings to your room will be absolutely gorgeous.

TWP loves figs, grapes and pineapples.  All three bring some gorgeous colour to any sharing platters or buffet.

Your menu should bring your guests together, creating a fun and friendly vibe that will be remembered for years to come. So, with homework done, sit back, relax, and enjoy your day, after all it’s all about you.
