A traditional wedding reception includes hor d’oeuvres, an appetizer, a main entree and desserts. However, couples are free to opt out or replace any or all of these courses for something more reflective of their theme and budget. Whether your caterer is on-site or off-site, they should be familiar with your venue. A tasting generally takes place three months prior to your wedding date. While most caterers will assess the size of your guest list and venue to help guide you to a particular dish that is feasible, but, ultimately, the choice is yours. As you finalize your menu, it’s important to consider your guests’ taste buds. It should appeal to a wide range of people, including those who have allergies or dietary requests such as vegetarians or vegans.
