The most difficult parties to plan are those that you arrange from a distance. If, however, you are the lucky couple who gets to have a destination wedding, arranging the details from a distance is exactly what you will need to do. If you find yourself planning a party, whether it be a wedding, a bar mitzvah, or a college graduation, your best solution is to work with the best event planner.
Just because you are planning your event from a distance and using an event planning and catering service does not mean that you need to forfeit the details you have been dreaming about for years. In fact, the exact opposite is true. The best event planner will make your wishes a priority.
All events begin, of course, with finding the best venue for the event you have planned. The venue you reserve will often help determine many of the other decisions you will need to make. If your event is scheduled for a rural location, like a vineyard, ranch, or farm, they will likely have ineffficient kitchen facilities, or none at all. Venues with fewer ovens, prep stations, and equipment, could end up costing more than you expect because of the added expense of bringing in these items.
When you do have an off-site caterer, plated, pre-ordered meals are often less expensive than a buffet or food stations. If, however, you feel that you have the money to spend, one of the more popular party food options is a food bar centered on a certain theme. Great Gatsby-inspired weddings, for example, might offer tea sandwiches, champagne towers, and champagne cocktails.
Whether you are planning corporate menus to serve hundreds of people, or you are preparing a menu for a wedding reception for only 50, the best event planner can help you anticipate and plan all of the details. The best wedding menus and and details take into careful consideration your guests, your budget, and your wishes.
