Daniel Briones: Generally for the catering aspect of wedding you are looking at about 60% of your entire budget probably about 70% of that is going to be the food portion and the remainder beverage. Many venues have a set package worth of one price you have a very inclusive wedding menu including beverage including orders for your cost of reception better menus will do everything all accord. So, you definitely have to know going into it.
Linnea Tangorra: Tasting is very important because not only where you get to see the way the food is going to look but you also get to see the way the food is going to taste. We usually we meet with your banquet manger at the location as well, sit down talk about the way that the food is cooked, the way it is presented, if there is any changes and sometimes you can even meet the chef which is nice to have that little of personal element to it. Tastings are usually done I would say three to four months before the wedding date and they can even be done way in advance or even a little bit closer most venues, hotels and caters will suggest the little bit closer because of the season. Seasons change so much, spices change, your side courses change and even the main course will change so as close as you can possibly get it without interfering with your invitations if you are doing a meal choice is best.
Male Speaker: I would absolutely recommend something served. When you serve a meal you can control the portions. When you serve a buffet style menu you generally have to provide more food in order to account to the fact that your guests are serving themselves. Its interesting because people don't really think that. It actually announce for more food and higher cost.
Desiree Moore Dent: Or the new family style which is your buffet but all your guests are actually seated at the table and they are just passing at the different plates around to just those guests at the particular table that they are seated at.
Male Speaker: Another option for saving some money in the meal that you serve is the time of day a Saturday afternoon, it's going to cost you less than a Saturday evening. A Sunday brunch is really wonderful.
