Last year I attended a beautiful wedding of one of my husbands photography clients.
She was hosting the wedding and the reception in the same location.
It was actually in the same large room.
After the ceremony was over guest were sitting in the room as the wedding party went with my husband to take pictures.
You could see the stress on the brides face.
As I learned as the time progressed, we were suppose to enjoy light horsd'oeuvre.
As it goes with most receptions the food was suppose to be served after the wedding party
came back in and was announced.
By the time that happened the cater had still not arrived.
Members of the party went to a local KFC and picked up some food for the guess.
In about an hour the cater started to come in.
Even after he arrived he was not able to bring all of the food in one trip and had to return
to his kitchen 3 towns and about 1 hour away to pick up the rest of the food.
I never learned exactly what happened.
I wondered did he get lost?
Was he new to catering?
All the guest were very understanding but the bride and her new husband did have un-nice words for the caterer.
I did get to taste some of his food and while it was not awarding winning, it was not bad.
Just very, very late.
What would you have done in this situation?
I have wondered why after seeing that nothing was in place to eat before the ceremony the wedding
director did not make some back up plans.
The wedding was buffet style and some things could have needed to be set up early.
In this case it was so late to get things back on track but what if you plan ahead.
Is there anyway you can create an alternate plan for your event food.
Do you have any surefire ways to avoid a catering disaster?
