Finally, it’s time to talk about the type of food and beverages you want to serve before you and your guests hit the dance floor! We highly recommend reading this course on a full stomach, because all of this talk of catering and cakes is going to make your mouth start to water.
So, let’s get down to the business of keeping your guests satisfied by picking the perfect treats for your big day! 

Coordinating the Catering

You may or may not be doing a full sit-down dinner for your reception. Regardless, you'll definitely need to have some sort of food for your guests. Make sure to check with your venue in case they have catering services available. Choosing a caterer is all about finding the perfect food pairing for the wedding vibe you want to create. Once you’ve decided on the style of your reception, you can start to think about what food you want to serve. Ideally, you should be thinking strategically about food choices that work well with the event. For example, you don’t necessarily need a caterer that specializes in farm-to-table three-course menus if you’re doing passed appetizers rather than a sit-down dinner. The real key to choosing a caterer is thinking about the type of food that you want to be serving and finding a caterer who can make that dream come true by offering the perfect menu to suit your needs.
