A professional wedding caterer, like Talk of the Town, will handle the food, service and logistical aspects of the event.

Here are some of the things we consider when we choose the right caterer for your wedding:
What reputation does the catering company have in your community? How long has the caterer been working in the industry? You also want to know that they have verifiable clients who can be reached to help you gauge their quality of service.
Another great option to find out more about the caterer is to ask reputable event planners or event venues for their recommendations. What kind of reviews does the catering company have? By checking the review sites, you will get a pretty good idea about the level of service you can expect. Most good professional wedding caterers will also have a solid social media presence and will be listed on professional wedding websites.
The manner in which the caterer communicates with you can tell you a lot about their quality of service. Does the caterer take long to respond to your questions? Do they get the details you provided with them incorrect? If the catering company portrays any of these shortcomings, they may not be the best catering service. A professional caterer should pay close attention to detail and be a good communicator. If they can’t impress you now, they definitely they won’t impress you on your wedding day.
While you want your wedding event schedule to be nailed down with specific timelines, it’s possible for things to go wrong at some point. Therefore, it’s important to choose a caterer who’s flexible enough to adapt to difficult situations or delays in schedule.
The cost involved in the wedding catering service is an important consideration. When interviewing catering companies, be clear about what you intend to spend and ask what is included in all fees.
Your wedding day should one of the most memorable days of your life. Working with the right catering company will ensure that your guests remember the event for many years to come.
