About Milan Catering and Event Design

Milan Catering and Event Design is a full-service catering company, based in Sarasota, Florida, that serves weddings in the Tampa Bay, St. Petersburg, to Sarasota venues. Our company was awarded the 2020 Best Caterer Award, once again, in the Florida West Coast.

What makes Milan Unique

  • Pop-up Restuarant: Milan Catering exclusive catering philosophy is to hire professional chefs (who have operated their own restaurants) and send those chefs to your venue to create a "pop-up restaurant" to cook, plate up, and deliver on-site.
  • Fully Integrated Styling and Coordination Our event planning and wedding styling and coordination company, the Sarasota & Tampa Wedding Gallery, offer fully integrated services with just one phone call, especially important for destination couples. No other caterer in on the Florida West Coast offers such depth.
  • Tried and True Vendor teams. So we have solved the hardest part, integrating the planning and designing with catering. But a seamless delivery of every detail only comes with integrating a professional group of wedding vendors, industry leaders in their own right, with our teams. And we only recommend a wedding vendor, having seen their work product at your venue.

Getting Started

  • Pick your venue and get a date. We travel throughout Tampa Bay and Sarasota to the majority of venues. We will not cater to an ARBnB nor a private home at the moment due to COVID restrictions.
  • Guess estimate your guest counts. Guests counts in July 2020 were 40% of the original counts, but our 4Q 2020 weddings are only showing a 20% drop, and all of our 1Q and 2Q 2021 are back to normal counts. In July 2020, our COVID Phase 2 Reopening Guidelines were approved by all local jurisdictions so we are back!
  • Budget Ok, so this is the tricky part. Our pricing depends upon the venue and their requirements for caterers. Some venues require that the caterer provide all rentals and catering services, others require catering and bar service from the caterer, other venues do it all themselves and others let it be your decision and ours. Some venues have commissions that get added to our prices, other require late-night pick-up of rentals which is really expensive. From our viewpoint, pricing depends upon the type of service you pick and what is on your menu, and what the venue rules are. Under COVID Phase 2 reopening Guidelines, buffets are gone. So as a general, guideline, our catering services are for 60+ guests and no less than $5,000.

    Just had a Fairytale Wedding! Thank you Milan and Laura Snow

    If you want a 5 star wedding with great food and a coordinator, Laura Snow, that is the best in the industry, then select Milan Catering. My guests loved the food, the bar service, and as the bride I am speechless when it comes to how much Laura did for our wedding. Not only did Laura orchestrate the entire day, the ensured every detail was accounted for, and then to my surprise took over 300 photos and videoed the most important aspects of the day! She brought my husband and I drinks all night and was with us every step of the way! She truly went above and beyond making our day a true fairytale. Book your day with Milan Catering and ask for Laura Snow to be your coordinator!

    Guests are still raving about our food!

    We had the best time working with Milan Catering, Erin was absolutely wonderful helping us make decisions from start to finish. Planning a wedding throughout 2020 was no easy task, but they were helpful, flexible and a pleasure to work with. The food at our wedding was amazing, all of our guests raved about the amazing passed hors d'oeuvres and the entrees. I would absolutely recommend Milan Catering to anyone planning a wedding!
