Good food, excellent presentation and first-rate service are essential factors in making the day a resounding success. The best policy is to keep food simple, seasonal and of the highest quality that the budget will allow. The hosts should choose a menu that will suit a range of tastes, not just what they enjoy eating.
A good, preferably tried and tested, catering company should be hired. As a general rule, you get what you pay for so ample budget should be allowed for catering.
