Food Catering - How to Save Money On Food Catering For A Wedding Event

Apr 3, 2008
In a wedding event, food catering is something that the groom and bride cannot afford to miss out on. If you are planning a wedding event, shopping for a catering service that matches your budget and needs is a must.

However, getting a catering service to fit into your budget for a wedding event is usually a very tough job. It is a sad truth that many caterers often raise their price when they know that you are organizing a wedding event. One trick to prevent caterers from raising the price too high is to source out your caterer in advance. Caterers always tend to raise their price for last minute customers who are organizing a wedding event. So with this, you are able to cut down on the price that you are going to pay for your catering service.

There are many ways to save money on food catering for a wedding event so that you will not need to cut the list of guests to invite because of high catering bill. Before you can save money on catering, you need to first calculate the price of every guest's plate at a wedding. The cost for individual guest increases when the food of the main course is fancier. Therefore, you should choose a meal that is pleasant to everyone and you can make it falls within your budget.

During a wedding dinner, there will always be alcoholic drinks. It is the biggest expenses at a wedding event. To keep your expenses within budget, you need to make sure that you do not over-order alcoholic drink. By not over-serving alcohol, you can keep your wedding bills within reasonable range and ensure that no one gets drunk and ruins your wedding.

Then, there are those who do not show up although they have reserved their place for your wedding. Therefore, you should always note that about 5 to 10 percent of people who have registered will not turn up eventually for your wedding. This will prevent you from ordering too much food which will result in a higher catering bill. One good practise for you is to have a reliable person to confirm the number of attendees a day before your wedding event. A good food catering company will allow you to change the number of plates you have to pay according to the number of people presents.

With proper planning, you definitely can cut your initial catering cost by at least 15%. The money saved can then be used to cover other expenses for your wedding event, saving you from bursting your overall budget.
