20 NovChoosing the Right Caterer for Your Wedding

Kidding aside, here are some tips that can help you choose the caterer perfect for the wedding you’re planning.

Word of mouth recommendations are the best

A lot of these restaurants and catering services are online these days and, yes, you could read testimonials from former clients there. But, when it comes to food, nothing beats word of mouth endorsements. So, see to it that you ask around.

Always go for taste tests

Schedule a tasting with your wedding catering Melbourne of choice. If they don’t offer this service, move on to the next – because they should offer this service. At times, there’s an extra fee for this. If you really like the option, get ready to pay for that.

Trust their specialty                       

You might like steak a lot. You may prefer chocolate fondue over regular brownies. You may want an assortment of finger food platters served during the cocktail hour. But, try the restaurant or caterer’s specialty first. If your choices are must-haves, look for one that has the recipe down pat instead of forcing someone to make it. You’ll regret it in the end, trust us.

Our take on wedding caterers

To be honest, spit roast catering Melbourne is a great option for any kind of event. And yes, that includes weddings too – especially if you don’t like the stiff and too-formal types. Restaurants and caterers offering spit roasting practically have everything. Here is what their basic menu includes:

  • Roast Beef, Lamb or Pork – all these are on spit roast, cooked at the venue
  • Fish or chicken dish
  • Choice of several sides – buttered vegetables, fresh salads with dressings
  • Dessert options – various cakes and pastries
  • Beverage options – iced tea and / or soda, coffee and tea often included

That basic menu costs about $500 to $600 for 30 people. You would have to pay an additional fee per person over the 30 inclusive of the rate, usually.

And yes, you will be glad to know that a lot of them also offer hors d’oeuvres platters. If they don’t, maybe you could ask them about it and negotiate the prices. They will see what great idea finger food platters are, and maybe include it in their menu.
