New York City Wedding Caterers: How to Find the Perfect Wedding Caterer in New York City for Your Special Day

Sharing a meal together with your closest friends and family is an important and traditional part of the wedding celebration. Also, you’re going to need some fuel for when the dancing starts! Your New York City wedding caterer plays a big role in making your wedding a success and also represents a big chunk of your wedding budget. So, how do you find the right caterer for your Big Day?

How to Find a Wedding Caterer in New York City

First of all, you are in luck. Living in New York City gives you access to a large and distinguished group of caterers. This is especially fortunate if you wish to serve a special meal that reflects your ethnic or cultural heritage. In The Big Apple, you can find caterers who specialize in nearly every culinary style.

Take care in choosing your caterer. An online search will point you to those with enough money to buy advertising or hire a savvy marketing team, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they are the best. If you plan on hiring a wedding planner, he or she will also be able to make great suggestions. Your wedding venue is also likely to have a list of potential caterers or may even require you to choose a caterer from their approved vendor list. Make sure you check your venue’s catering policies before you begin shopping for your caterer.

Finally, start looking for your caterer as soon as possible. Many of the best wedding caterers in NYC are booked a year or more in advance.

Budgeting Your Wedding Menu

One of the most exciting parts of planning your wedding is working with your New York City wedding caterer to craft a personalized menu for your guests. Before you even start thinking “Asian fusion meets Tex-Mex," you’ll need to provide your caterer with a head count and a budget ballpark.

Most caterers price per person, so having a solid guest list is essential to ensuring you stay within your food and drink budget. Knowing your budget will also help you decide on certain things like whether to opt for a cost-effective buffet-style meal or splurge on plated meals, and whether you want to offer up appetizers during the reception.

Don’t forget about drinks, which can be a big money drain. Couples on a budget may want to limit drink options to wine and beer and provide guests with drink tickets. If your budget is a little more flexible, consider adding a few mixed drinks and cocktail options.

Crafting Your Wedding Menu

Once you’ve got your budget down, it’s time to actually start planning your menu. Your caterer may offer recommendations, but this is your special day, so be clear about what you want. Also, let your caterer know upfront if you have any dietary restrictions. Your caterer needs to know if you want a vegetarian meal or if your future mother-in-law can’t eat gluten.

Start by choosing a cuisine style -- are you into Americano or do you love the idea of a fancy taco bar? Then focus on your main dish. This will inform the sides and even the appetizers. As you begin reviewing your options, consider what foods will be in season during that time of the year and whether you want your menu choices to reflect something meaningful to you as a couple. For example, if your religion is central to your identity, you could include traditional foods and dishes. Alternatively, you can serve artisanal pizza as a nod to the meal you ate on your first date.
