Did you know that most of your wedding budget actually goes towards covering the costs of catering? This is why it is so important to work with a true professional that comes with plenty of experience and customer acclaim.

It may seem like a challenge to chase down the right caterer, but fortunately for us, Tallahassee is teeming with awesome professional catering services dedicated to customer service! If you follow our helpful tips, you will have one big burden of your wedding off your shoulders, and will make your life a lot less stressful during the planning of your wedding.

First, you should begin your search with the recommendations of your friends, family, and trusted colleagues, particularly those who have been recently married, or have been involved in a wedding in some factor. It is also worth it to obtain your venue coordinator's recommendations as well, as they may even supply you with a list of preferred or required vendors. Another great resource is online wedding directories as these websites provide users great information on wedding specialists, including details on pricing, reviews, bridal testimonials, pictures, etc.! A traditionally good source is also the International Caterers Association and the National Association of Catering Executives, call them up, or go online to obtain a list of great catering services in your area that come with plenty of experience and critical acclaim. Once you have a list, call each candidate up, and ask them of their availability. You should only schedule appointments with candidates that are not super busy around the date of your wedding, because they will be able to spend more time on your specific needs.

Now you can start the interview process off, you will want to share your ideas and blitz the candidate with plenty of questions. Most of the questions should pertain to logistics and preparation. You should ask them how much experience they have at weddings, and how many weddings they service on average a year. You will want to scope out their shop for cleanliness and organization. Their shop should pass all health code laws and federal food mandates, if there is something amiss, do not consider the candidate. You will also want to sample their entire menu if possible, and ask them of their suggestions for a wedding your size. The last thing you will want to cover is the cost of the services. You should obtain a sample invoice from each candidate, and compare them side-by-side so you can get the most out of your money.

Once those details are handled, and you feel you have right catering service at hand, get everything into a written binding agreement, and place a deposit. You really should not have to worry about a dry cutlet or runny pasta on the day of your wedding because you did your due diligence in vetting your candidate. Enjoy your wedding food!
