Choosing the right food to service at your wedding reception is a big decision that the couple has to make. There are many things to consider and it can get a bit overwhelming, even when working with a professional Chicago wedding caterer. To choose the best dishes and to save yourself a lot of stress and worry, follow these three simple tips:
Take advantage of your tastings—Make sure your caterer has tasting scheduled for you before your wedding so you can taste the food and make sure it is something everyone should like. Prepare questions ahead of time and ne sure to ask as many questions as you need to in order to feel comfortable with your menu options.
Send allergy notes with invites—A growing trend to send an extra note with the wedding invites asking people to respond with any dietary needs or food allergies that they may have. Asking for this information sooner rather than alter in the planning process helps you avoid a situation where every single dish you wanted to get is a problem for some of your guests. Knowing allergy and diet requirements head of time helps you better plan meal options.
Keep it simple—When everything is getting overwhelming and you don’t know what to choose or what menu options to consider, fall back on the tried and true rule: Keep It Simple! Traditional meals like steak, roast duck, or fish are safe bests and you are more likely to get something that tastes great, looks good, and that everyone can enjoy!
