When making a budget for your wedding reception, the biggest share usually goes to the
food. Hiring the right wedding caterer is the perfect thing to do. Since you will be coming
across different wedding caterers during your search, it's advisable to spend time
interviewing each caterer to find out detailed information about their services.

See what each caterer specializes in. Does the caterer focus on certain types of cuisine?
Depending on your wedding theme, you may need a specific caterer. For instance, if you are
planning to have an oriental type of wedding, you may want to hire a caterer that
specializes in Asian cuisine. Consider a caterer that has catered weddings in the past. You
should ask if a food tasting session is possible. A good, professional caterer will provide
tasting sessions, therefore, if a caterer fails to do so, then it's time to find another one.

Check the service cost. The cost of catering can depend on the menu, but caterers may
issue package rates. The caterer would provide linens, table cloths and napkins, plus other
facilities. See if usage fees for these items are included in the package or you have to rent
them separately. At the same time, you may also have to provide gratuity to the
attendants. Get a complete quotation and see if the total cost would fit your budget.

Ask the caterer about other services that they can provide. It is common for caterers to
provide tables, chairs, plates, utensils, and so on. Ask your caterer what they can offer for
your wedding reception. Providing of needed
facilities may also be part of an all-inclusive
package. But you have to be sure of what is
included in the package.

Who will decorate the wedding reception
venue? Decorating the wedding reception venue may be a job for wedding florists or the
caterers. If the caterer handles the job, then you don't need to look for florists and wedding
venue decorators. At the same time, confirm with the caterer if they will do the table setting
and skirting.

search for the perfect caterer in Melbourne by searching on Google for Catering Melbourne.

of their food, which they offer before making your decision.
