IMPORTANT THINGS FOR YOUR PIZZA WEDDING CATERING
It is highly recommended to have a cocktail or appetizer hour to allow for pictures, changes, reduce standing around and to allow guests to snack (curb hunger). Think about your guests and how long they have had to travel and/or wait to eat. Service Time:
It is important that a full
two hour service window is understood by guests, wedding planners and DJ’s. Only allowing 1 hour for dinner service is a bad idea. First course (1st hour) normal service, Second course (2nd hour) especially needed with 125+ guests to get through the line and come back for seconds (they will want seconds). Boring Lines:
It takes guests time to get there food (100 people about 50 minutes no matter the buffet). If everyone decides to approach all at once, you have a boring line and reduced choices slowing down the flow even more. Do not have your guests approach all at once for any buffet service. Table Releasing:
If table seating is a priority then consider couples trivia, games (send your champion!), bingo, drawings, or even a number system to stagger guests first course (stagger 10-15 guests every five minutes). Second course can be a great time for less important speeches so people feel they can come get seconds if your timeline is tighter. When Does this Start?
An Itinerary is HIGHLY recommended, especially for vendors so they can help make your day go smoother. Vendor suggestions are going to be your number one source of information for that part of your wedding. It is also recommended for you to see how your day is going to flow and avoid potential problems.
WEDDING PIZZA CATERING SERVICE CONSIDERATIONS: Time Schedule:
Due to a pizza weddings special requirements we will arrive 1.5-2 hours before (not late like some casual caterers). We have found that the area requirements, getting with the proper person, on site changes all requires more time then normal caterings. If you have gotten three or more appetizers we will be on site serving for up to 3hours continuous, this does not include breaks or gaps. If you need us on site longer then either the two hour window or the three hour window with appetizers contact us for rates.
If their are delays in your schedule we need to know as soon as possible as we make our food fresh on site. We will only be on site to serve for two hours (three continuous hours with appetizers) from our agreed time regardless of delays. We may be able to extend this time on site for a fee depending on our other catering commitments.
We need clear access to leave at the end of our service window and will pack up and remove ourselves within 45 minutes.
