3 Reasons to Have Your Wedding Reception Catered

Posted on: 17 January 2018

When it comes to the food served at your wedding reception, you have the choice of making it yourself or having it catered. There are a lot of awesome reasons why you should have your reception catered and three of these reasons will be discussed here. 

It's Less Stressful

One awesome reason to have your wedding reception catered is because it is much less stressful for you. You don't have to worry about planning the menu yourself, making the food, setting up the food, or even serving the food. The catering company will make sure that the food you have selected for your wedding reception is prepared and ready to go on time. They will also set up all of the food and food serving items for you. If you'd like, they will even serve the food to all of your guests.

In terms of clean-up, they will clean up all of the dinnerware from the tables when your guests are done eating, and will remove all of the unused food. This essentially makes the process stress-free for you. 

You Get to Choose All the Food

When you choose to have your reception catered, you and your fiancé get to choose all of the food. In most cases, you will go to the catering company and have a day where you try foods for the appetizer, the main course, and the dessert. This gives you the opportunity to try out several foods until you find the ones that you like the most. This is also fun because it gives you the excuse to hang out together with your fiancé and eat delicious foods together. 

You Know the Food Will Be Delicious

If you consider making the food for your own reception, you run the risk of ruining it. You may mess up on the ingredients, you may burn the food, or having something else go wrong. If this happens, you have no other choice but to remake the food so that it tastes appropriately. This can be very time consuming and you still run the risk of messing it up again.

In contrast, when you hire a catering company to make all of the food for your wedding reception, you know that it will taste amazing. Chefs make the food for you and they make sure that it is prepared and cooked perfectly. They also make sure that it is served at the perfect temperature. 


Cooking Without A Stove

I absolutely love to cook no matter where I am, but it isn't always easy to take care of food prep when you are far from home. I started focusing on going through and overhauling my portable cooking routine, and I even invested in a camp stove and some fun preparation tables. Within a few months, we were cooking outside and really loving some excellent food under the stars. This blog is here to help other people to know how to cook without any trouble, even if they don't have easy access to a traditional stove and oven. Read more about cooking outdoors here!
