Whether you’re planning a wedding or looking for corporate catering in Dallas there are three things you should know when creating a custom menu for your event.
It may seem obvious but the first step in customizing your menu is to determine the type of food that matches your vision. Then based on what type of food you choose consider what service style works best for serving it to your guest: passed hors d’oeuvres and buffet service to food stations, plated meals, or family style are some options.
For couples, while it is your wedding and you should be able to choose things you like it’s also important to consider your guests. If you or your fiancé has unique taste by all means incorporate a unique dish but also provide more standard and universally liked dishes to compliment it.
Another important tip is to ask your guests before hand about major dietary restrictions such as allergies, vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free. Also if kids will be included, having kid-friendly options doesn’t hurt even in limited quantities.
All of these things insure that your guests don’t go home hungry.
Customizing your menu can be done within your budget. The best way to do this is to determine your must-haves. The second thing to consider from there is what alternatives you can do to cut costs such as buffet vs family-style.
