Looking for a Caterer? Start Here!


Q: Should I hire a caterer?
A: If your reception facility does not provide food, you will need to hire a caterer.

Martinez Caterer


The caterer will be responsible for preparing, cooking, and serving the food. Hiring a caterer is an investment that will save you time and money. The best part is that it will allow your family to be guests at your wedding instead of cooks and wait staff!

Sample Questions to Ask Your Wedding Caterer

1.       Given the style, time, and date of my wedding, what are some menu items that you suggest? What would the cost-per-person be?

2.       Do you have any particular style of food or special menu items that you specialize in?

3.       How many other weddings will your company handle that same weekend/day/hour?

4.       Are you licensed? (this means that they have met health department standards and have liability insurance)Do you have a liquor license?

5.       How does the cost-per-person of a buffet compare to that of a sit-down dinner?

6.       Does that cost-per-person just cover the food, or are charges such as staff, rentals, and linens included?

7.       What service costs are included and what costs are additional? Are set-up and clean-up included? How much is overtime if the reception runs long? Are gratuities included?

8.       Do you provide linens, glasses, plates, silverware, tables, chairs, serving pieces, and decorative flowers for trays? Would it cost less if I handled any or all of that myself?

There are several other very important questions that you will need answered before making an informed decision. You will also need to make sure that your contract covers everything discussed by you and the caterer.

May these vows and this marriage be blessed. May it be sweet milk, this marriage, like wine and halvah. May this marriage offer fruit and shade like the date palm. May this marriage be full of laughter, our every day a day in paradise. May this marriage be a sign of compassion, a seal of happiness here and hereafter. May this marriage have a fair face and a good name, an omen as welcome as the moon in a clear blue sky. I am out of words to describe how spirit mingles in this marriage. – Jalalud’din Rumi Maryam and Matt were married on August 9, 2019 at The Olana Mansion.

The Attendants

http://www.zazzleweddings.com/Be-My-Bridesmaid.php   Your Attendants, or as they are commonly referred to as your Wedding Party, can be as large or as small as you like. Choosing your attendants may seem like a no brainer in the beginning. He pops the question, you say YES, you call everyone you know, and the next thing you know--you have 8 Bridesmaids! How did that happen?? It happened because your friends/family said, "I'm going to be in your wedding, right?" and you said, "of course!" It was not until three days later that you have realized how many people you invited into your wedding party. It is quite common to feel obligated to have certain people in your wedding (even if you are not close to them). However, it is your (and his) day so you should surround yourselves with people who are supportive, loving, and genuinely happy for you. Some of those described may be friends instead of family and that is okay. Choosing Your Wedding Party Think a
