3 Tips to Help Plan a Catering Menu for Your Wedding Day, Woods Bay-Rollins, Montana

You’ve found your wedding venue and are in close contact with an event planning specialist to help you iron out the details of your big day—but what about food? Putting together a catering menu for your big day requires incorporating your personal taste and style with dishes that will please the crowd and stay within budget. With a few tips from the professionals, you can make sure that every guest is full and will remember the plates at your wedding for years to come. 

3 Must-Know Tips for Designing a Catering Menu for Your Big Day

1. Set a Budget

First and foremost, set a budget that works with the rest of your wedding plans. Giving your caterer an idea of how much you can spend per person will help them to create a menu that will reflect the style of your wedding without pushing your spending limits. Most catering companies will be able to provide dining options for all budgets, so don’t be shy about communicating monetary restrictions. 

2. Put Your Taste First

cateringThe food served at your wedding should be a reflection of what you and your spouse love to eat! If you’re partial to casual food, ask your caterer about homey, recognizable appetizers and entrees. If your tastes are more refined, you may choose to serve more intricate dishes with fascinating flavor combinations. Your caterer should be able to come up with menu items that please your taste buds. 

3. Consider Guests’ Needs

Keep in mind the dietary needs and flavor preferences of your guests. If you know of any guests’ allergies, let your caterer know so that you can avoid adding them to the menu. Gluten and dairy-free, vegan, vegetarian, and low-sodium options can all easily be incorporated into the menu alongside dishes without nutritional restrictions. Your goal is to keep your guests happy and comfortable, so add a few extra edible items to account for picky eaters or kids.
