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.

Houston Catering: Your Wedding Catering Guide to Houston, Texas and Beyond

Bursting with cultural districts and a proud hub of economic activity, Houston has a lot to offer. Take a stroll through the Museum District where you can learn about history and embrace the arts. Then, if you are in need of an entertaining show or perhaps in the mood for a ballet, the Theater District is sure to be showing something of interest. This animated metropolis has something seemingly for everyone. Thus, it can accommodate a variety of wedding themes so your special day can be representative of you and your partner.

A Vibrant Food Capital

Houston, like the rest of Texas, is well-known for the cuisine. Basking in traditional barbeques and American favorites like chicken-fried steak, the food scene in this bustling city has some unexpected flavors to offer up too. Thanks to the diversity, restaurants and eateries cater to a variety of tastes and cook up expertly crafted dishes from around the world. Also popular are fusions between traditions, such as Vietnamese-Cajun. Afterwards, cleanse your palette with some refreshing sweet tea. When choosing the cuisine for your own special event you have a plethora of options in the Space City. When making your decision, keep in mind your intended style for your wedding, be it a formal gathering with gourmet delights or a casual event with comfort foods galore. It’s also important to keep in mind your budget. You can keep track of this and more with the help of our wedding planning tools.

Not Just A Beach Town: Galveston, Texas

Consider traveling a little ways south to Galveston, Texas for your special day. This waterfront city continues the urban bustle of Houston but within sight of the Gulf of Mexico. Historically, it was known as the Wall Street of the South. You can see this reflected in the numerous mansions throughout the city, some of which you can now get married in, among other places. Often thought of today as a resort town, there is still an urban buzz that’s drawing artists and businesses alike, making this a lively destination.

Weather

Given the warm temperatures and location close to the coast, Houston’s landscape features tropical vegetation. For only a small number of days each year does the temperature drop below freezing. However, for roughly over three months temperatures reach above 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Sunshine and mildly cloudy days are common, ideal for those wanting to host their wedding outside. Important considerations should be made during the hottest months, where shelter from the heat might be wise to think of when choosing a venue.
