- Do your research. Once the quote comes in, look online and research the caterer. See if they have references, etc.
- Begin your search for a caterer early. We suggest 8-10 months before to your special day. If you are planning a wedding around the busy holiday season, you may even need to start looking for a caterer a year in advance.
- Ask for references from friends, look at reviews and testimonials, and the bbq caterer’s wedding portfolio.
- Confirm your chosen bbq caterer’s availability for your wedding date.
- Book the bbq caterer and pay deposit if it’s required
- Choose between a self-serve buffet, butler passed, carving stations and/or a served sit-down dinner. Having a caterer onsite will cost more, but it’s also a nice touch to have the pitmaster at the event.
- Decide on your menu items. Typically, the basic menu includes pulled pork, beef brisket, corn bread, beans and coleslaw. However, adding ribs, tri-tip, collard greens, potato salad, broccoli slaw and some others. The key is to have enough so that everyone leaves satisfied.
- Check to see if printed menus at served dinner or food descriptions at buffets are provided by the bbq caterer.
- Make sure you set the date and time with your bbq caterer. Follow up one month, then two weeks and the day before. Just a quick check-in. The bbq caterer will appreciate it as they have many different events going on.
- If there are any changes to the wedding like location, guest changes, seating or menu updates, contact the caterer ASAP.
- Create a “Final Timeline of Events” for your wedding day and send a copy to your bbq caterer.
By going through this wedding checklist, you AND your bbq caterer will be in the best position to through the most memorable event that your guests will be talking about for years.
