What is included in a wedding catering package?

Your wedding catering may be provided by your wedding venue, or you may want or need to hire an outside caterer. Reading a wedding catering contract can be a bit confusing, but in general, your wedding catering cost will be priced on a “per person” basis. A standard wedding catering package includes the following:
  • Food: The wedding food cost is the most obvious part of a wedding catering package. You’re paying for the actual food that your guests will eat during cocktail hour and the main meal. Whether it’s served plated or buffet style is up to you and your caterer.
  • Beverages: Your caterer will likely provide beverages, both alcoholic and not, for your big day.
  • Staffing: From your event manager to cooks, servers, bartenders, and more, there are lots of staffers that will go into making your wedding day a success. It’s important to work with your caterer to make sure that you have enough people on hand to ensure a smooth reception.
  • Rentals: Your caterer may also provide rentals, from tables to chairs, dishes to glassware, utensils, and more. Some venues provide these rentals, or you may need to hire a separate rentals company.
  • Additional fees: Caterers may charge additional costs and fees, including cake cutting fees, corkage fees, and more. Be sure to read your contract carefully—and ask questions—to make sure you understand your wedding catering cost.

What are the different ways to serve wedding reception food?

When determining your wedding food cost, a big factor will be how you’re planning on serving the meal. There are a few serving style options for weddings:
  • Plated: Otherwise known as a sit-down meal, your guests will be served their meal at their table by a member of the wait staff. There may be a single entrée option served or several entrée options, which your guests can either order in advance (usually on their RSVP card) or at the event. This is the most formal and traditional of wedding serving styles.
  • Buffet: For a more casual serving style, guests serve themselves from a buffet station. Fifty percent of couples choose a buffet-style reception.
  • Family-Style: Servers provide large platters of food to reception tables, and guests pass the trays around and serve themselves.
  • Cocktail-Style: A more modern service style, food is served via passed hors d’oeuvres and at stations. This allows guests to walk around, and mix and mingle during the reception instead of sitting at their tables.

What is the average wedding catering cost per person?

The average wedding catering cost per person varies depending on your wedding’s service style. For a plated meal, the average cost of wedding catering in the U.S. is $40 per person. For a buffet, the average is $27 per person.

Is a wedding reception buffet always the cheaper option?

Most of the time, a wedding reception buffet is indeed less expensive than a plated dinner. While you’ll pay less in staffing and rentals for a buffet-style meal, you’ll need more food since guests are serving themselves. To keep your buffet budget-friendly, avoid serving costly foods (shrimp, for example) buffet-style or have a staffer on hand to serve your guests from the buffet to keep the portions under control.

What is the average cost of alcohol for a wedding?

Alcohol can comprise a major part of your total wedding catering cost. In general, the average starting price in the U.S. for bar service at a wedding is $15 per person.

Caterers in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh is a vibrant and multicultural city famed for its rich and varied cuisine. Drawing influence from a variety of domestic and world ingredients, Pittsburgh’s cuisine is representative of the city’s diverse heritage. Home of the Big Mac and the iconic Pittsburgh Salad, the City of Bridges boasts a cosmopolitan range of wedding caterers who can complement your special day with a meal to remember.

Tantalize your Taste Buds in the The Steel City

Owing to the influx of European immigrants in the early 1900s, Pittsburgh’s culinary scene has become a modern-day melting pot of cuisines. Whether you would prefer Polish-style Halušky, Italian-inspired dishes, or hearty, All-American BBQ, all palates are catered to in Pittsburgh. Many of the city’s catering companies are based in the Downtown district, while several reside in the suburbs. Most caterers can provide set-up, clean-up, and delivery services, though it is important to contact the vendor for information about their specific offerings. Couples marrying in Pittsburgh typically spend around $5,000 for their catering, however, this figure can vary significantly. Be sure to utilize our wedding cost guide to learn how to avoid hidden costs and find the best catering deals.

What’s Cooking in Columbus

Situated a few hours west of Pittsburgh, Columbus is a charming alternative destination for couples who would like to exchange vows in the Midwest. Like Pittsburgh, the Arch City has also benefited from multiculturalism, boasting a wide array of cuisines. Famed for its historic German Village area, Ohio’s State Capital has a vintage vibe that is sure to delight your nearest and dearest. Catering costs in Columbus are slightly lower than in Pittsburgh, with an average price of $3,845.

Acclimatizing to the Key Stone State

Thanks to its humid continental climate, Pittsburgh experiences the best of both worlds; hot summers and crisp winters. July and August are the city’s warmest months, perfect for couples who would like to host an al-fresco wedding meal. The winter sees temperatures reduce to about 20 degrees, so it may be prudent to have your reception indoors.
