Today, The Garden District would like to share some “Food for Thought” to help Southeast Texas brides choose the right SETX catering company.

To assure a successful bridal experience listed are a few suggestions upon choosing your Southeast Texas wedding reception catering company…

Look for an experienced Southeast Texas caterer that will listen to your ideas, help you achieve the vision for what you want, and will be opened to a wide variety of suggested menu options.

Shop around and compare Southeast Texas catering companies.

See what your options are in menu selections, pricing, services provided, discounts, and payment plans.  There may be price differences using glassware verses a quality disposable dinnerware.  Many venues and catering companies will discount for a Friday or Sunday event.  Food tasting appointments may be offered by some companies upon request.Your Golden Triangle caterer should be accessible when questions arise and respond quickly for ease of mind.Garden District Kabob Shrimp

See if your caterer has expanded services that may include cake slicing, bartending services, linen rental and decorating ability.  There are some local companies that offer champagne fountains, candy stations or chocolate machines and will offer discounts if you choose to include them with a catering package.

Speak to your caterer’s previous clients (especially other Southeast Texas brides!) and get their opinion of the experience they had with that company.  Pictures do speak words.  Ask to see pictures of past catered event by the company you choose.  Feel comfortable and at ease with the company of choice.  They are here to please you as the bride.

Is your Golden Triangle caterer experienced with the number of guests you are having in attendance at your reception?  Ask how many staff members will be needed to help make the event run smoothly.  Wait staff should be appropriately dressed and conduct themselves professionally at all times carrying on the duties defined in a contract.

Foods should be presented to guests in an eye appealing manner whether on a buffet line or as tabled appetizers.  Are the food items prepared in the company’s kitchen or are they precooked ordered through a food service?  Warming trays and chafing dishes keep foods hot and at appropriately safe temperature and should be included in the food presentation. Ask your caterer how long the foods will remain on line during the reception. The company may have a policy concerning the foods left over at the end of the evening.

During the planning time with your catering company a relationship of trust and confidence will be the foundation of a successful experience. Food is the center of any Southeast Texas gathering.

There is comfort in the preparation of food, the grouping of people who care about one another around a food table talking and laughing and making memories.  Make a gathering at your Southeast Texas wedding reception a memorable one with friends, family and loved ones enjoying the foods prepared by your choice of a dependable catering company.
