Many people are very particular on who prepares their food let alone the people they hire to offer wedding catering services. Hiring professional caterers for your wedding can take up a huge chunk of your wedding budget and that’s why you need to plan properly beforehand. In this section, we will share with you some tips that can help you to save on the cost of catering when planning your wedding.
Consider catering services offered by the wedding venue
There are a few wedding venues in Kenya that offer catering services as part of their wedding package. In this case, you don’t need to look for caterers once you hire out the venue. This can actually be cheaper because you wouldn’t have to pay for the cost of transporting the food from where it is made to the wedding venue.
Shop around for professional caterers in Kenya
There are many companies that offer wedding catering in Kenya. If you really want to save on the cost of food without compromising on quality, hire a professional wedding catering company that doesn’t charge very expensive rates. You can get your wedding planner to help you shop around for the best catering company.
Ask family members and friends to help
You can also reduce the cost of catering for your wedding guests by asking some family members and friends to help serve your guests. If the same professional caterers will serve your guests, you will have to pay an extra fee. By asking your friends to step in and help in serving, you will be able to cut down on the cost of catering and still ensure that your guests will be properly fed.
Select a cheap wedding buffet
When choosing the combinations of food that you want to offer guests, try and select the types of food which are most important if you don’t want to exceed your budget limits. Look for a chef who can help you create an amazing wedding meal that is within your budget and what your guests will enjoy.
High quality catering services don’t come cheap
Hiring the lowest priced wedding catering company may be a completely bad idea. You may experience poor customer service, low quality food or even delays on your special day. To avoid this, make sure you go for a food tasting days before the wedding so that you can taste the kind of food your guests will be given. The last thing you want is disappointing your guests in the food department.
