Know Your Budget
The first step in event planning and event catering is to set a budget. Many times, a professional caterer is able to provide you with an estimate to give you an idea of how far your money will go. It is important to keep in mind that not all costs go towards food. There are also costs associated with staffing, rentals, beverages, and service fees. Be upfront with your caterer about your budget, and you will find that they will be able to provide services within your budget. Make sure to ask your caterer about what they provide so that you are not surprised by any unexpected costs.

Have an Idea of What You Want
Knowing what you want will help you find a caterer. You may not have specifics, but knowing if you want a buffet, family style, or a plated meal will help you and your caterer figure out the direction your event is going in. Let your caterer know what type of event you are having and how many people you are expecting. Be sure to let your caterer know of any food allergies or aversions.

Be Respectful of Your Caterer’s Input
Keep in mind that your caterer is a professional. Be respectful of their suggestions, advice, or recommendations. Their input comes from experience.
