Wedding Planning Tips: Choosing the Right Menu For Your Wedding


Start early

Your search for a caterer should begin as soon as you begin looking for a venue. Many venues offer catering services as well event space and you should consider the packages they offer as this can result in significant savings. Some other venues may only allow you to work with preferred vendors that they already have a relationship with. When you are allowed to bring in an outside caterer, the charge is often a little higher so it is worth trying the in-house offerings first.

Choose the right food format for your wedding

Your wedding will be as unique as you are, which means there's no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to food. Are you dreaming of a wedding that will include a formal, sit-down dinner or would you prefer your guests to mix, mingle, and dance while snacking on light appetizers? Make sure to think about how the food will fit in with the rest of your planned events of the evening when you choose your menu.

Maintain your theme

Make sure to choose a theme for your food. This will help narrow your options and provide a coherent and consistent offering. Whether your food theme revolves around something personal like childhood favorite foods or Mexican offerings for a Cinco de Mayo wedding, themed food will help to make your meal stand out. At Martin's, we offer hundreds of items that can be mixed and matched to perfectly tie into your theme.
