Catering Costs Among Top Expenses for Gatherings and Events
Added: (Wed Jun 29 2011)
Weddings are among the most common celebratory occasions in which catering plays a significant role in terms of both the event and the budget. The top three costs for weddings are the venue, catering, and surprisingly, the photo and video coverage. While other occasions may exchange the third for another aspect of expenditure given the circumstances, catering is almost always the first or second most significant facet of the event.
Looking at it from a per-guest point of view, instead of an overall buffet perspective can help ease up on the costs. Unfortunately, plans for occasions almost always never push through without a hitch. And a few guests not on the guest list will always find their way to your catering tables. Planning the catering and with which caterer to rely on for an event is very important factor.
In efforts to help trim the overall costs, planners can be hired. In the case of weddings, wedding planners or celebrants can help plan the event and plan it within budget. Though seemingly initially counter-intuitive, setting aside money to hire someone who genuinely knows how to plan and execute event celebrations within budget can indeed help greatly in terms of savings.
But for the choice of caterer, it ultimately boils down to the service package. Quality of the menu aside, the entire service package that falls within budget should also be decent enough for the occasion.
