How to choose the right caterer

Your wedding day on Ibiza is going to be a truly unforgettable experience, so the food that you lay on for your guests also needs to be truly wonderful. Fortunately, as demand for weddings on Ibiza has soared, a number of excellent outside caterers have sprung up on Ibiza. Many involve people who run, or have run, successful restaurants on the island and some who specialise in wedding catering and can bring a great deal more than just cooked food to your big day.
For this reason, you need to bear in mind the complete package being offered when considering a quotation for a caterer’s services. In some cases you will simply be paying for the food, while others will include waiting staff, drinks service, crockery, cutlery, glassware, linen hire and on-the-day coordination. Similarly, quotations will vary significantly depending on your guest numbers and food requirements, as well as the quality of service if only a few of the above services are included.
Talk to a selection of caterers about how you envisage your day and the style of food you would like. Listen to the caterers’ ideas and ask them about weddings they have done before. If the caterer has previously provided service at your chosen venue they should be in a good position to offer a great deal of advice concerning what works there, and what doesn’t. In the course of conversation you’ll get a feel for the caterer’s style and attitude, so that you can decide if they really are the right caterer for your special day.
Although your budget will come into it, consider the caterer who has listened the most carefully to your requirements and who you feel will be best able to complement the atmosphere and style of your day.
