The sky’s the limit with the high quality of culinary talent at catering companies here in the Hampton Roads area. Before you sit down with potential caterers, you should have a good idea of how many people you’ll be inviting to the wedding. The number of guests will determine your catering budget as well as the time of day and style of reception you envision (i.e. buffet, food stations, sit down dinners, or cocktail reception), and the types of food you want to serve. The vendors providing you estimates will then have an opportunity to show how they’ll implement your vision within your budget. The three key factors in choosing a caterer are service, food and presentation. Schedule a tasting with your top 3 contenders to sample their culinary skills and take note on the presentation of the food as
well. This will familiarize you with their style before committing to them as your
caterer for your big day! And, most important, choose a caterer you enjoy working
with and who understands your vision.
