Daylight saving time is behind us, which means that the days are only going to get longer for the next few months. In the US and for the entire northern hemisphere, the longer days also mean warmer temperatures, the start of spring and summer. The vast majority of people in the States prefer the summer and spring to the winter and fall, and it’s not hard to see why. It’s also much more common during this time of year for people to get married. There’s something about being able to have a wedding outside or at least being able to go out on a patio or deck during the reception to catch up with people at the event. Whatever the reasons, the spring and summer are by far the most common times of year for people to get married.
Thus, since the official start of spring was a couple of days ago, the official start of wedding season is upon us. This means that you’re likely going to start receiving invites from your friends and family that are getting married, and if you’re thinking about getting married this spring or summer you’re going to need to start planning quickly. At the very least, you should try and nail down your wedding caterers and your event venue as quickly as possible. Event venues go quickly (many of the best ones may already be booked up), and caterers go just as fast. If you want to have great food at your wedding this summer, then you need to find that caterer and book them as quickly as humanly possible.
What should you be looking for in a catering service? For starters, you should only consider those caterers that actually make food you enjoy. If you don’t like Asian food, then don’t choose a caterer that specializes in wonton soup and sushi. If you want to enjoy eating the food throughout the day and night and you want your guests to do the same, then make sure you’re taking your time to look at the menus of each caterer you’re thinking about choosing. This is the only way to make sure that the dishes they’re preparing are dishes you’re going to want to eat.
The next thing that you should be looking for in a caterer is that they’re going to be someone you can trust on. Put simply, this just means that they’re going to be able to make enough food for the number of guests you’re having at your wedding, that they’re going to make that food on time, and that they’re going to show up when you schedule them to. In other words, it just means finding a caterer that’s reliable.
Other than great food and reliability, there’s not much else you need to be looking for in a catering company. Of course, affordable prices are a plus, but as long as they’re not charging you way more than they should be, it shouldn’t be too big a deal. BellaDonna Catering is a great example of a catering service that offers great and affordable food with superb reliability.
