Food Catering Services - How To Save Cost On Food Catering During A Wedding Event

Apr 28, 2008
In any wedding event, food catering services is something that an event organizer cannot miss out on. If you are planning to hire a food catering company for your event, the cost of its service must match your budget.

However, it is a sad truth that when caterers know that you are organizing a wedding event, they tend to raise their price. This makes getting a catering service to fit into your budget very tough. Do not look for caterers only at the last minute because these caterers always tend to raise their price for last minute customers. So, source them out weeks in advance to prevent getting ridiculous quotations. By sourcing out your caterer earlier, you can cut down on the price for your catering service.

There are many ways to save cost on food catering. One of the ways is to calculate the cost of every guest's plate at your wedding event. The cost of each plate increases when the food that you serve is fancier. Therefore, you should always choose something that is pleasant to everyone and make it fall within your catering budget.

If you intend to offer alcoholic drink during your wedding event, you need to prepare to fork out more money. Alcoholic drink is always the biggest expenses at a wedding event. So if you really want to save money on your catering, you need to make sure that you do not over-order alcoholic drink, or even not ordering at all. By not over-serving alcoholic drink, you will be able to keep your cost within reasonable range. At the same time, you also can ensure that no one get drunk and ruin your wedding event.

One of the biggest fears when you organize a wedding event is that those who have already reserved their place do not turn up. Therefore, you should note that there will always be about 5 to 10 percent of people who will not turn up even though they have already registered for your event. So, make sure that you do not order too much food which will increase your catering cost. Always have someone to confirm the attendees before your wedding event. Once you get the final number, talk to your food caterer. He or she will most likely change the number of plates you have to pay according to the number of people present.

As long as with the right planning, you definitely can cut down the cost of your catering service by at least 15%. So do spend some time to plan properly and save cost!
