If you’re the first one of your group of friends to tie the knot and the whole wedding planning thing is a bit new to you, it can feel like a minefield. Some of the biggest (and more expensive) parts to get right include the venue and catering, but it can seem that the minute you say the word ‘wedding’ the prices shoot through the roof.
When you’re asking yourself the question how much does wedding catering cost? – it’s a difficult one to answer, because depending on what you’re going for, the prices will change. A good start is to pick a caterer who comes with good reviews or a recommendation from a friend, because chances are you’ll get value for money and one who is prepared to offer the kind of catering that fits with your plans, not the other way round. So, if you want a barbecue in a field, or several courses of fine dining, for example, the options are there.
How much can you afford to spend?
Before you start falling in love with all the fabulous things that can be done with Derby wedding catering, work out your budget and how much you can afford to spend. The food and drink has got to be great on the big day but there are many different ways to do something amazing without making your bank manager cry.
This is where finding a caterer who can be flexible and creative is a bonus. Set menus and meal plans would be great if we were all the same, but we aren’t, so look to do something unique with your wedding catering and chances are you’ll save on the budget too.
Our prices start at £48 per head incl VAT
Some of the most fashionable ways to do wedding catering, especially over the summer months, is to take it alfresco, with a barbecue, hog roast or food van, bringing an ‘oh so cool’ festival type atmosphere to proceedings. And, because you’re not doing the whole formal sit down meal thing, it can often work out cheaper too. Even if you do want something indoors, there are so many options out there to explore.
