Choosing a Wedding Caterer in Omaha, NE


We’ve compiled some simple dos and don’ts when choosing the right caterers for your big day. Of course, your guests are attending your wedding to watch you marry the love of your life, but that doesn’t mean they’re not expecting a great meal. How do you know who is best suited for your big day? To help you narrow down your choices we selected our top catering companies within the area! First off, here are our six rules to follow…


Don’t: Jump the gun.

Don’t begin talking to caterers until you have a good and solid number of how many guests will be attending to determine your overall catering budget, so any conversations without this information will be very hypothetical and very unhelpful.


Do: Know what your priorities are.

What’s most important to you? It doesn’t matter if it’s having a gourmet experience or having as many friends in attendance as possible—you just need to know the answer.


Don’t: Get too caught up in food fads.

There’s such an emphasis put on having expensive food and it can get in the way of a good experience. Keep in mind that throwing money at it doesn’t make it any better.


Do: Trust your gut.

Aside from the food itself, your budget, the presentation, and the team’s service, there’s one factor that can go an even longer way: your gut. Choose a caterer you enjoy working with, one who understands your vision and concerns, and is generally personable. You’re inviting this person to be part of your big day! Make sure they’re worthy of the honor.


Don’t: Try to skimp on service.

We’re talking menus here, so it seems obvious that the most important factor is the food, right? Wrong. In this order, the three things that are really key in choosing a caterer are service, food, and presentation.


Do: Ask to attend an event they’re catering.

We always advise couples to attend an event with the caterer you’re considering to experience their service. You can see and experience their vibe to see how it feels, so you’re making the right choice. So many people say they just want a tasting and that’s only one part of it. Pay close attention to the staff’s demeanor, their attentiveness to guests, and how they handle any bumps in the road. On the day of, you won’t be able to be at 12 tables at once, so knowing your guests are in good hands ahead of time is worth it!
