Can I Cater My Own Wedding

Aug 13, 2013 | Posted by:  abi s


Have You Lost Your Mind! This is probably the reaction you will receive from most of the people you know and unless you have loads of time and can handle a “Dinner impossible” type of schedule then we don’t advise it. Is it possible? Yes, yes it is. There have been many home cooks who have supplied their own wedding food with great result. Sadly however, the number of people who have tried wedding catering and failed is much larger. If you can pull it off you stand to save quite a large sum of money. There are major reasons you should, if finances allow, hire a professional wedding caterer. It will eliminate stress, save on hurt feelings of friends and family, save you the expense of purchasing the equipment needed and most of all presentation. Wedding caterers know how to make even the simplest fare look fancy and expensive.

Ask anyone who has worked for a wedding catering company and they will tell you that it is not as easy as it seems. If you are still determined to give it a go here are a few tips that can make the night go a little smoother for all involved.
  1. Hire a coordinator  - this is someone who will oversee the setup and service of the wedding food. A professional on hand will be able to help you purchase and prepare the right amount of food for the number of people on your guest lists.
  1. Ask for help- this will be the tricky part. The horror stories from brides who have attempted wedding catering always include a tale or two of people who said they would be there or do a certain thing and left them in the lurch.
  1. Home cooks are great but most do not have the experience needed to cook for hundreds of people. Search out the ones in your circle that have such experience.
  1. A standard kitchen is not equipped for large scale cooking. This could be a problem as you will need room for the many helpers to prep the wedding food and storage.
Servers will not be necessary if you serve buffet style. Even then you have to be careful. No one wants to stand for 20-30minutes in a long line waiting for food. Plan to have more than one serving line so that the guests can get food and get seated quickly.
