Helping Your Southeast Texas Caterer Help You

Catering is one of the cornerstones of any Southeast Texas wedding reception.

If the ceremony starts a half hour late, there are bees in the flowers, and the power goes off in the middle of the ceremony, all will be forgiven if you serve great food at the reception. Go one step further and have an open bar and all of the above may just be forgotten completely.

Talk to your caterer early and openly. Top Golden Triangle caterers like Katherine and Company or Suga’s can go as high end as you want- but just as importantly they can still produce top quality food for a much more down to earth budget. They just need to know at the beginning what you’re looking for- theme, budget, and “must haves”.

If a theme is important to you, let your caterer know. Maybe you met your fiancée during your study abroad in Spain? Your caterer can do a whole tapas theme. If you and your fiancée both used to rodeo, your caterer can come up with a great Western menu- as traditional or avant-garde as you’d like. If  you’re both hunters, your caterer can come up with a menu that replicates some of your favorite wild game dishes. If you both love baseball, tone it down and go with hotdogs, nachos, a popcorn machine, and soft serve ice cream. You can also compromise and find middle ground with your spouse. A friend of mine was a huge Dodgers fan and his wife was very into high fashion and style. He let her plan everything just the way she wanted it- except their ice sculpture was a replica of Dodger’s stadium. She had the beautiful wedding she’d always dreamed of and the one thing for him was something both their friends will always remember- something distinct and personal.

As long as your Southeast Texas caterer knows what your budget parameters are, they are just has happy working on something high end or with a very conservative budget. Either allows them to demonstrate their creativity, the breadth of their culinary knowledge and skills, and gives them the chance to make your dream wedding come true- which is really what it is all about.

Caterers can help with more than just the food. If you choose your caterer early in the process of planning your wedding, their experience in all of our Golden Triangle wedding and reception venues gives them outstanding insight. If you have your choice narrowed down to three venues, don’t hesitate to ask your caterer what they know about each venue- they just may have the perfect advice that helps you make the right choice for your special day.

Finally, make sure someone is looking out for you at the reception. Ask a friend or family member (your caterer might have already taken care of this) to set some food aside for you and your groom. There will be so much going on with greeting guests and posing for photos that more than one couple has found that by the time they got a break to eat there wasn’t much left.

Whether fancy or fun- or a mix of both, catering will make your reception. Let your caterer know early what you want and the budget you’re working with. In Southeast Texas we have wonderful caterers who can deliver your perfect reception no matter your theme, tastes, or budget.
