Hello Bride and Groom's To Be!

I’m Ruby the Rochester Bride! As a newlywed of the Rochester area, I love sharing my knowledge of the wedding experience with newly engaged couples. This week I can’t wait to share with you some tips and pointers on deciding on a caterer for your wedding day!

-A caterer should be booked at least six to nine months prior to your wedding day

Before meeting with a caterer:

-Understand your budget, the formality, and style of your ideal wedding, the number of guests, the date, time and place of your reception.
-Ask friends and family for recommendations or consult the catering specialists.
-Find someone you feel comfortable with, is flexible, and has experience working with other vendors.

Before making your final decision:
-Make sure you have talked to more than one caterer.
-Ask to sample the menu options you are interested in.
-Ask for references and pictures from previous events.

Once you have chosen your caterer:
-Bring him/her to the reception site to inspect the kitchen facilities and to help design a layout that will be comfortable for your guests.
-Inform your caterer of the events that will take place throughout the evening so he/she will be able to plan accordingly.
