The details that go into wedding planning can be overwhelming, even for the most prepared brides & grooms. Selecting an Oklahoma City wedding caterer for the day of your wedding or for your OKC wedding reception will take time, comparison, and careful consideration. Most people planning weddings haven’t planned many (or any!) before – so what should the average bride and groom be searching for when they select a reception caterer?
One of the most valuable things to find in a wedding caterer is simply experience with catering weddings. Several years of experience in Oklahoma wedding catering should reassure you that the caterer knows the ins and outs of wedding days, and just how important their roll is in making a bride & groom’s day perfect. Ask for references! A caterer who is proud of their business will be pleased to provide them. Oklahoma City is still small enough to ask around, ask your friends who catered their wedding, but take those recommendations with a pinch of salt. Nobody likes to admit the chicken at their reception was under cooked.
Catering can never be one size fits all. Rather than choosing from pre-determined menu items that can’t be changed, look for a caterer who will help create a wedding reception menu tailored to your specifications.
If you and your partner are huge sports fans, why not look into getting married at an Oklahoma City Thunder game, an Oklahoma Sooners or OSU football game? If you went to college at one of Oklahoma’s Christian Colleges, why not get married in the chapel where you met? Guests will appreciate these kinds of personal touches, and they’ll lead to all sorts of other creative ideas.
