A caterer’s time is worth money to them, but they have to put out a certain amount up front to book your business. How many consultations should a bride and groom reasonably expect to receive before they actually sign the contract, and pay a deposit?

Check out my blog in BRIDES today with a breakdown of what you should expect the process of working with a caterer to be. If you know what they’re supposed to provide, you won’t be disappointed when the experience isn’t what you’d always imagined (no jacketed waiters will be serving you 100 tiny bites, sorry to break the news.

To have a good relationship with a caterer, be sure to put down a deposit early and respond to questions quickly. You want the people preparing the meals on your wedding day to look forward to working with you.

Until next time, happy wedding planning!
