In addition to a traditional wedding planner, many couples find it useful to hire a wedding caterer to help execute or coordinate specific aspects of their wedding day. In fact, some wedding caterers provide bundled services that end up being more cost-effective in the long run, especially if the caterer has partnered with complementary businesses that offer a wedding discount when all these services are purchased together.
Contrary to popular belief, caterers can do much more than food preparation and food service. Many catering companies also offer the following products and services for their wedding clients:
1) Table settings and decorations
2) Floral arrangements
3) Wedding cakes
4) Bar service
5) Music or entertainment coordination
6) Waiters, bartenders, and service staff
In fact, sometimes the services a wedding caterer provides may overlap with your wedding planner, so it’s important to do a side-by-side comparison to choose the best wedding package to buy from both parties. You might end up saving a lot more time and money if you use your wedding caterer for the majority of your wedding day arrangements.
