Weddings are one of the most beautiful ceremonies to be a part of, to witness, to help organize, and to help cater. To see two souls come before family and friends and declare their love for one another is something heavenly. However, it’s all paid for on Earth. And with this in mind, here are some tips to wedding Catering on a budget.
- Don’t be hesitant about drop and go catering packages. By drop and go, I mean someone comes, sets up the food, wire racks, sternos, and then leaves. Avoiding server costs and keeping it to buffet style is an easy trick to keeping costs low. At Archer’s BBQ, all our packages include setup and delivery. No additional costs as the packages are already factored with drop and go! https://archersbbq.com/catering-2/
- An underrated though growing in popularity option for wedding catering food is BBQ! A big reason for this is the quality can still be very high and the costs can remain very low. Another is it is the south! What has more charm and southern soul than BBQ? There may be an initial stigmatism to having BBQ at a wedding, but at Archer’s BBQ we take an immeasurable amount of pride in our food and it shows. Having high quality food is what we provide in all four of our locations and is exactly what you can expect for your wedding day.
- Kick around something fun! Something like a Nacho bar/Taco bar can always be a fun and inexpensive route to take for a wedding. Also an easy way to portion control. Even if not as the main course! An option I suggest to people if they have, for example, 100 people and they’re considering the nacho bar is to do something like 30-40 people for the nacho bar and then do a full food package for 100. Something like a light appetizer until the main course. At Archer’s BBQ we can accommodate this easily with a variety of different packages and a full Nacho Bar/Taco Bar option.
Hopefully this gives a start into handling the task of finding a caterer that is inexpensive and can create an incredible value.
