One of the most important parts of the wedding party is the catering service. However, you have to be aware that there are many different types catering services. You need to choose beforehand what type of service you want to make it a lot easier for you when searching for caterers in Sydney.

Two of the most common choice for wedding catering services are sit-down catering and buffet catering. Before jumping into the final decision, find out first the pros and the cons of each service.

Sit-Down Catering

Sit-down catering is the most formal catering service you can get for your wedding party. However, the trouble here is that you have to be careful in arranging the seats. Often, it is a dilemma for the bride and the groom when creating the seating charts as guests may not go along well with their tablemates.

Also, the seating assignments alone can make some family members feel bad. It often happens when relatives come without notice or unexpected. Nevertheless, sit down catering means less food waste. Depending on your menu option, sit-down catering can be less expensive than buffet catering.

Buffet Catering

Buffet catering is quite traditional seen as casual and not so formal. However, it offers more flexibility for both the hosts and the guests. With buffet catering, picky eaters are no longer a problem since there will be a lot of food options on the table.

Among the drawback of buffet catering is the long line. Guests will have to spend time lining up to finally get their food. Buffet catering is also more expensive and more food waste, especially if you had the wrong estimates.

The Bottom Line

The key of course, is the food. Have as many delicious foods served as possible, it will certainly up the excitement and appreciation in any event!

Buffet catering services can help and work hand-in-hand with anyone planning that perfect event, whether it is a birthday celebration for a kid, a wedding or even a corporate event.

While you can be totally on your element while designing the right theme, locating the unique setting or offering the perfect ambiance anyone would want for their event, leave the food to the food experts.

Buffet catering services offer all sorts of packages. You can have a beef and chicken party, where guests can all have the beef and chicken goodness they would ever want.

Go ahead and plan the props and furniture, table centerpieces and even flower arrangements. Table settings and flower arrangements, little things as they are, can often make or break an event. But food definitely can break it if you don’t have appetizing ones served. Go for the works!

Choosing a wedding wine

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

Choosing a wine list for your wedding doesn’t have to be as daunting at all! Sydney Wedding Caterers have created a guide for you so here are things to bare in mind:

Quality

Wine is a very special part of the reception which can help to spoil your guests and be a great addition to your wedding dining experience.

Many reception venues will allow you to bring your own wine but this may have a corkage fee – remember to check.

Variety

When planning your wedding reception the bride and groom must consider the amount of guests that will be attending and they remember they will have different tastes and preferences. The solution to this is to provide plenty of variety.

Offer two varieties of sparkling, white and red wine. Therefore the guests will arrive, offer them a sparkling white and sparkling rose so that when first course is being served you can move on to still wine varieties. Guests who like crisp, refreshing and young white wine will enjoy Pinot Grigio and others who prefer something with a bit more weight to it will like the fruity flavour to a creamy vanilla Chardonnay.

It’s best to offer two contrasting red wines such as Merlot which boasts of a smooth and soft texture with subtle red fruit flavours and then we have Shiraz which is a more robust and fruit forward style red wine with a cherry flavour.

Offer white and red wine throughout the wedding reception so that your wedding guests can make their own rules so that perhaps they would prefer a red with their chicken or fish and a white with their steak.

Sydney Wedding Caterers offer a great selection of food TO GO WITH YOUR CHOSEN WINE – from moreish spit roast buffets to deluxe surf & turf buffet. Get your wedding catering sorted today and checkout www.sydneyweddingcaterers.com.au for more information.

8 key things to look for in your wedding catering menu

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010

8 key things in your wedding menu

  1. It should include options for vegetarians or those with dietary requirements. You may also consider a fish dish and an alternative meat dish as a main course because an enormous number of people don’t eat fish but don’t necessarily mention this as a dietary requirement.
  2. It should provide a wide range of tastes to avoid becoming repetitive. If you have a tomato based starter you may want a cream based sauce for your main course, and if your first course is quite sweet you might like something spicy or peppery for your main.
  3. Each dish should make you smile. Many couples end up choosing a particular menu because they like the main course and they don’t dislike the rest. Each item in your wedding catering menu should make your mouth water, so if your caterer doesn’t provide a set menu which does that ask them to swap and change courses until you are happy.
  4. It should suit the tastes of your guests. There’s no point in paying for lobster if the majority of your guests would rather eat steak, but equally you don’t want to dish up novelty burgers if your guests will be expecting a top class formal dinner.
  5. It should work with your chosen wedding wine. Unless you plan on serving a different wine with every course, you might want to look for a menu where each dish works with a general wine. If you are serving a Sauvignon Blanc and a Pinot Noir, these will work with most canapés, a light first course such as a soup or cheese soufflé, and a fish based main course.
  6. It should work well with the season. Look for menus that feature light refreshing dishes for the spring and summer months, and hearty warming dishes for autumn and winter weddings. Try to include seasonal produce in your wedding catering menu; this should save on cost as well as making the dishes appropriate for the time of year.
  7. It shouldn’t be too messy. Pheasant in a red wine sauce may be a particular favourite of yours but will you really feel the same about it once you’ve got a deep red stain on your wedding gown? Your guests will have got specially dressed up to come to your wedding so don’t choose a menu featuring dishes that are likely to stain.
  8. It shouldn’t be too heavy. Your guests may be hungry after the ceremony, but they still have to get up and dance after the meal so you don’t want them to be bloated or nodding off during the speeches. If your first or main courses have rich creamy sauces, or feature pastry or cheese, try to keep your dessert light and fruity. If you have your heart set on that decadent chocolate torte for dessert, look for a salad first course and light fish or poultry main.
