The most important thing at an Indian wedding post the wedding itself is definitely the food. Every guest is anxious about the menu and judgemental about it. So it’s given that the families go through a lot of stress while managing the caterers at the wedding. Let’s have a look at top five catering blunders you can avoid.
1. Number of waiters
This is one thing which is often under looked and ends up creating a lot of chaos at the wedding reception. So don’t forget to ask your caterer about the number of waiters that will be present at the wedding and ensure that you are not understaffed.
2. Plated or Buffet ?
One of the most crucial aspect of a wedding reception is how the food is being plated and served. Depending upon the number of guests, you must decide and inform the caterer beforehand about your choice.
3. Hidden charges
Though caterers inform you about the food rates and plate costs, do a thorough check as to what extra charges will be applicable in case of any urgent requirements. Simple things like availability of drinking water should be pre discussed to avoid any additional charges later on.
4. Number of Buffet tables
While everyone discusses the number of food plates that will be required, rarely people think about the number of buffet tables that will be there. When there are less number of buffet tables it results in increased waiting period for guests and also gathering of crowd around the tables. So confirm on this beforehand.
5. Menu for the guests and not yourself
When excitement takes over, the couple usually chooses the menu as per their taste and liking. But the menu should be universal, it should be as per the liking of the guests as they are to be served. Also don’t mix up many cuisines, stick to one or maximum two cuisines and you will sail through perfectly.
