Questions to Ask your Kosher Caterer

kosher-caterer-questionsIf you are planning a kosher wedding, it’s vital to also search for a kosher caterer to stay true to your practices. When you have narrowed down your kosher caterer options, it is important to then ask a number of different questions. These questions will help you make your final decision about your kosher caterer and ensure your special day is just as you want it.

Basic Kosher Caterer Questions

  • How many weddings do you tend to caterer per year?
    • This will give you an idea of how experienced the kosher caterer is. You don’t want to be the first or second wedding the caterer has worked. It is better to choose a kosher caterer that has plenty of experience.
  • Do I need any permits?
    • Some venues and states require you to provide permits. While often times the kosher caterer is the one to provide these permits, others will require the bride and groom to provide the permits.
  • What other services can you provide me?
    • There are times when a kosher caterer can provide you a list of vendors that they have worked with before while also providing some planning services. Choosing a kosher caterer that can provide you with other services can potentially help you save money and reduce your stress level.

Food Kosher Caterer Questions

  • What food choices would you recommend for my budget?
    • You may have an idea of what foods you would like for your wedding, but they may not fit within your budget. A kosher caterer should be able to let you know what items would fit best with your budget.
  • Can you create a menu surrounding any allergies?
    • If you have guests that have a food allergy, it is important to then choose a kosher caterer that will be able to work with that allergy. You don’t want guests singled out or unable to eat because of an allergy.
  • Can you do either a buffet or a sit down dinner?
    • You want to be sure you have options on your style of dinner before making a major decision on a kosher caterer.
