Whether you are planning a wedding yourself or with the help of a wedding coordinator and you feel that you have prepared everything perfectly, it may happen that some issues which will not go exactly as planned. Always take this alternative on your mind and do not let them spoil your dream day. Nothing is more important than your love and the little problems always have a solution. Let’s have a look at what can happen to you on during your wedding day and how to fight with it.
Chapter five: Catering
It is a great luck that the brides come to their weddings as the last ones, because they would not handel the general chaos that happens around the wedding catering. Catering agency never follows the timing during the preparations. It is a well-known fact. And then as a miracle, at the moment when the wedding starts, they are ready and everything is as it should be. In other words, you will not find anything wrong during the catering preparations. The bad color of the covers or tablecloths will be revealed easily and the world will not stop spinning because of that. But, if only 8 of the 15 planned waiters will arrive to work, and you will find out immediately when they serve the dinner with two plates in the hand instead of a theatrical performance of one waiter per guest, you will feel this mistake for the whole wedding feast. Soon you will notice that served wine is a few qualitative levels lower than you paid. And when the food presentation convinces you that everything will be perfect, it does not cross your mind that the waiters confuse the seating plan and serve a nut dessert to heavily allergic aunt. Think about the combination of the season and the selected dishes. Have a plan for the location of particular catering stations and timing. The sweet bar on the backround of the tree is a wonderful idea, but if you do it at 30 ° C, it could happen that your sweet bar will be beautiful only 30 minutes. Likewise, for summer weddings and garden parties the heavy meals are not suitable. Do not be afraid to experiment and include to the selection BBQ station or ice cream preparation in front of your guests. The more experiments, the more risks. The hot new product, the greater chance that the guests will not notice any deficiencies. It really matters when choosing a catering company. Most guests will remember just the wedding meal and its quality. It does not apply that the most expensive catering agency is also the best one. Previous tasting is necessary for your better feeling, but you yourself can imagine that eating a meal at a tasting for up to five people is quite different from consuming the food that was prepared for all 100 of your wedding guests. The same applies to inventory selection. The catering company will show you the least worn out pieces or just the once used only for the tasting show. If any of the above happens, you probably do not have the chance to fix it during the wedding, but strongly point out the deficiencies in front of the witnesses or in written form and complain about them after the wedding. If nothing else, you will feel a sense of justice.
