How To Save Money On Your Wedding Catering

It is understandable that you will want your wedding to be special. You want it to be the day that is worth remembering during your lifetime. Of course, you want your guests to remember your day too. You do not have to be extra lavish when it comes to every detail of the occasion though. As much as possible, you want to save money for all other things that will come after the big day. 

One of those wedding essentials where you will spend the most is food. Since you do not have much time preparing the banquet on your own, it will be good to seek the help of catering services. Wonder how you can save on your wedding catering? Here are tips to help you with.

Plan your guest list

Planning your guest list will help you look into how much you will spend for food. If you already have allotted a specific amount for food, then you know fairly well how much to spend for each person. Make sure that you do not miss out on the most important persons in your lives. You have to prioritise to be certain that you can serve the food you know your guests will be happy about. Trimming your guest list to 50-75 will be good if you do not have much budget for the catering services.

Choose your wedding date carefully

What has this got to do with saving money on catering services? Well, when you choose to have your wedding on a summer day, expect that catering services are on demand because many people want to wed at any day during the summer. With this, expect that the food and the service can cost twice as much than when you choose to celebrate it during an off-season. Come to think of it when caterers are busy they tend to increase their prices to be able to accommodate you.

Choose the right time to celebrate your wedding day

Choosing your time is just as important as choosing the day with which you should celebrate your big day. When you are on a tight budget and you are hiring catering services to help you with, it will be wise to have the celebration at least towards the end of the day instead of having it during lunch time when people have to be fed with more food to their heart's content. At least when you serve your guests food for dinner, they will not be eating much anymore. Just some cocktails and a sumptuous, light dinner will be enough.

Order what you and your guests can eat

Remember when you were always reminded by your parents to only put the food that you can eat on your plate? Well, you can apply the same thing to your wedding food. Order only what you think your guests can eat, just enough to satisfy them to their stomach's content. Yes, it is good to have some room for a lot more but it is such a waste seeing later on that there are plenty of leftover food on their plates.

Allot a specific menu for children

Kids do not eat as much as adults do during occasions like this. When you are expecting a few of them to come during the occasion, there should be a specific menu catered to them. This will help you save much on your wedding food budget.

On top of all tips mentioned above, choosing the right caterer for the occasion will do you a lot of help during your wedding day. You can also choose a unique menu if you're going for an outdoor theme. For example, BBQ catering in Toronto will make your day extra special and memorable for you and your guests!
