Food To The Fore

Nov 30, 2017

When it comes to Malaysian celebrations, food is always an integral part of the occasion. And weddings are no different. In fact, there are numerous opportunities for food to be served at any one wedding celebration.

Whilst the wedding banquet is often the centrepiece of the wedding day’s activities, the families of the bride and groom tend to also need the services of a caterer during the following among others :

  • Gathering of extended family at the homes of the bride and groom’s parents on the eve of the wedding.
  • A reception for guests after the wedding ceremony perhaps.
  • Snacks and drinks during the tea ceremony at a Chinese wedding.

In fact, the services of a caterer may also be necessary when the following wedding plans are in place :

  • If the couple has chosen a venue that only offers function space without a banqueting and kitchen team available.
  • If an alfresco cocktail and dinner are in the offing.

A few tips :

  • Introduce some of your vendors to your caterer, in particular, wedding planner, floral designer, decorator and cake designer, as they may have to coordinate with one another.
  • Run through menu options and do a food tasting before your big day.
