choosing a caterer indian wedding 

An Indian wedding reception is a grand event. There is beautiful décor, colourful outfits, amazing entertainment and lots of people. But let’s face it, aside from the fabulous bride and groom, once the wedding is over, the main thing that your guests will be talking about and remembering is the food. You want to make sure that you pick the right caterers for your Indian wedding. 

To help you out, we've compiled a list of tips in selecting a catering company that not only has excellent food, but also has good service and pays attention to detail.

1. Ideally, you should start researching and looking for catering companies at least 9-10 months before your wedding date. It may seem too soon but the earlier you start, the more likely that you will have enough time to do more research and get exactly what you want. 

2. Before you start looking though, figure out exactly what your catering budget is. The reason you need to do this is because the food at the reception will take out a big chunk of your wedding budget so you need to know exactly what you’re working with before you start making calls.

3. Choose a professional catering team that has experience in hosting large Indian wedding receptions. Research the company through websites and social media to look at their most recent catering jobs and how they have fared

4. The Internet is a great tool in helping you research exactly what you are looking for. However, don’t forget about word of mouth. Talk to family and friends who have already gotten married and find out who they used and what their experiences were. This can be very helpful in avoiding potential disasters.

5. A tasting session is VERY important. It gives you an opportunity to experience the food ahead of time and find out the quality, style and presentation of the catering company. You can also see if it fits in with your vision of your wedding. 

6. If your wedding reception will have food restrictions, such as vegetarian only or no beef, make sure to tell your caterer ahead of time. It might also be a good idea to go with a catering company that has a lot of experience with the kind of food you are looking for and Indian weddings. You don’t want them to start experimenting at your wedding. 

Food is an important part of any Indian wedding or gathering so make sure to plan ahead to ensure that that everything goes exactly as planned!
