At Sooey’s BBQ & Rib Shack, we’ve successfully catered hundreds of weddings in North Carolina and we would love the opportunity to do the same for you. If you’re still on the fence about hiring a catering company for your wedding day, below are five reasons we think you should!

Hiring a Caterer Will Save You Timedreamstime_18991848

While hiring a wedding caterer may sound like a costly venture, it can actually save you time and money in the long run. When you hire an experienced wedding caterer to provide the food for your wedding, you don’t have to worry about recruiting friends and family to make dishes for the big day. You also won’t have to worry about your loved ones scrubbing dishes after the big night is over! From planning the wedding menu to buying the ingredients and preparing the food, hiring a professional caterer will save you a tremendous amount of time.

Caterers Have Experience Planning Menus

Have you been trying to decide on the perfect wedding menu but just don’t know what to choose? When you work with a wedding caterer, they’ll already have plenty of experience piecing menus together and they will be able to help you choose a variety of dishes for your big day.

Caterers Can Accommodate Food Allergies

With the various types of diets and food allergies, it can be difficult trying to keep everyone happy when it comes to your wedding food. When you work with a catering company to provide the dishes for your wedding, they’ll be able to accommodate any type of food allergy the bride, groom or sister-in-law may have.

A Caterer Will Know How Much Food To Serve

Whether you plan on inviting 25 guests or 500 guests to your wedding, a professional wedding caterer will be able to help you decide how much food you’ll actually need. Catering companies have catered a variety of events, from weddings to parties and more, so they’ll have a good idea of how many hors d’oeuvres, starters, entrees and side dishes you’ll need to accommodate your guests.

Caterers Will Set Up Everything Before Your Wedding

The morning of your wedding, you don’t want to have to wake up extra early to help set up tables, chairs and food for your guests. When you choose to work with a wedding caterer, their staff will be able to handle each and every detail involved with your wedding cuisine so you don’t have to. Whether you plan on providing your guests with an elegant sit down dinner or a delicious BBQ buffet, your caterer will handle setting everything up and tearing everything down.
