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. Dinner service must start no later then 30 minutes after appetizer/cocktail is over.
We will start serving no later then 10 minutes after our agreed time and start to encourage guests and vendors to eat. Good fresh prepared food must be served on time and we are excellent at it!
We need clear access to leave at the end of our service window and will pack up and remove ourselves within 45 minutes.
