Planning a wedding can be a bit of a daunting prospect. It is something that most people intend to undertake only once. It is also often the largest event that most couples have ever planned, before or since. And the options are seemingly endless.
Sainlo Events Catering deal with brides and grooms-to-be on a regular basis and we’re really aware of how difficult it can be to pick up that phone to the first caterer and enquire about your wedding catering.
The fear is basically born out of under-confidence, a fear that we will be considered – or worse, made to feel – ill-informed by the person at the other end of the phone. This is really unlikely to happen, remember that the person you are contacting wants the opportunity to provide a wedding catering service for you.
The fear is real though, and it leaves us fumbling our words and possibly ending up with a less than accurate quote, in the worst cases we feel we had a bit of a bad experience. We learn as we go along, interpreting terms and noting down must-ask questions with each call but wouldn’t it be great to start with that confidence and overall have a better experience?
To ease this pain we have compiled a list of terms – a wedding catering glossary if you will – of the jargon regularly used in the catering industry, that we realise is not necessarily understood outside of the kitchen. Hopefully this will arm couples in their quest to find the perfect menu for their wedding without fearing that phone call anymore.
