Tips to hire wedding caterers within budget

Fixing the budget for your wedding is essential. It’s very important to get both quality and quantity at a reasonable price in your catering budget. But, before zeroing in on the caterer and finalizing the per plate cost of food, kindly keep the below points in mind.

The Add-ons

At all times check with more than a few caterers to find out cost. Keep in mind that all caterers will have a fixed menu with snacks, main courses and sweets (desserts) all priced according to a per plate basis. But they will throw in extra bonus like a free Chaats and even a snack counter to entertain the kids. Remember to ask for more and you will get numerous stuffs incorporated in the same price.

The Food post

You would have a buffet prearranged but you can also get other food posts with more local cuisines. For ex., if you have a customary Indian menu set at the buffet counters, set up extra two counters of local snacks that will attract the crowds. Even a Dosa counter with fresh Dosa’s and pakodas like paneer and vegetable pakoda will delight the guests while filling their stomachs before the main dinner event.

The cost

The wedding caterer’s contract will always be negotiable. But inquire for additional charges like rental cost for cutlery, service fees for the servers and most important of all-taxes. Ensure that you don’t end up paying additional costs per plate after your big day. Verify and confirm this with your wedding caterer before you sign the contract.

The no. of guests

Have an accurate list planning to attend the wedding. Most wedding caterers will charge per plate but with a minimum guest no. fixed no matter the number of plates that are handed out. Ensure that you can finalize the list of guests who will make it on your big day. You can get an accurate head count of the guests who will be attending your wedding by RSVP through online invitations.
