Whether you’re planning a corporate event or your wedding day, hiring a professional full-service caterer is something you definitely want to consider. There are many amazing things you can do by yourself but hiring a caterer who has experience in this business is a must. There are several benefits to hiring your wedding caterer before the event and working with them to ensure that your day goes off without a hitch. Here are three reasons you should consider hiring a wedding caterer for your big day.

Knows Just How Much

When it comes to planning for a huge event such as your wedding, there are some fine details of how much food to have that can be quite difficult to navigate. That’s where your caterer comes in. They have years of experience in making sure that everyone is taken care of and that there is plenty of food to go around. By working with a professional, you do not have to worry if you’re going to run out of food before all of your guests have had their turn at the table.

More Than Just a Menu

Planning the food at your wedding is more than just a menu. There are many fine details that in the busyness of planning, you may forget. A full-service caterer will ensure the napkins, silverware, and dishes are all in place and bring the decorations to make your day even more special. Every detail is taken care of when it comes to hiring your professional caterer. They take care so you don’t have to worry.

From Start to Finish

Working with a professional caterer will also take the frustration of you having to set up and clean up off you. They will take care of all the details from beginning to end and ensure your event goes off without a hitch.

Choosing the Perfect Wedding Date

One of the most exciting parts of planning your wedding has to be choosing the date. It gives you and your fiance a goal, and allows you to begin booking vendors. If you’re at a loss for how to narrow it down, here are a few tips.

  • Select a season: A winter wedding is very different to a summer wedding, and both vary from autumn and spring weddings. Decide on the season that has the weather you want for your celebration.
  • Significant dates: Some couples choose a significant date for their wedding. This can be anything from the anniversary of your first date to a commemorative holiday like National Ice Cream Sandwich Day (August 2, in case you were wondering).
  • Saturday or not: Saturday is the most popular day for weddings, but other days can offer their own advantages, including discounted rates with some vendors. Think about whether guests will need to take time off work and if this will make a difference to your celebration.
  • Saved dates: Pay attention to holidays, as guests might have other plans, even a year in advance. The same goes for weekends of major sporting events, like the Super Bowl and the Final Four.

There’s no right or wrong date for your wedding, and it really is a personal choice. Planning in advance can help you book the best Connecticut wedding vendors. If you want to meet and book wedding vendors for your Connecticut wedding, come to our next show!
