Questions for caterer??HELP

Hello ladies hope you are doing awesome. Just wondering if you all had any questions for the caterer i could ask. We are still interviewing them so i want to make sure i dont forget anything before i decide. Also Is the tasting only after you sign the contract?

Will they provide the dinner ware? What about servers if needed? How will they be dressed? Is their tip included in the costs? We had a tasting between two caterers we were deciding between before choosing one.

Find out if they have a set menu of items you can choose from ( and does what you choose affect the price) or can you request certain items. Do you have to buy your alcohol through them? Make sure they work with your venu and vice-versa, sometimse there is a conflict for whatever reason. See if they will meet you at your venue ahead of time for a walkthru to go over any issues or special needs. Are they prepared to handle special requests, like  vegetarian guests or gluten free?

HTH!

 Tasting should be done prior to signing contract. You don't want to sign a contract and dislike the food! If they have a set menu of what they provide, can you alter it in anyway to suit the needs of your wedding? Ask if they provide cutlery, table ware, table linen etc. When I was looking for caterers that did buffets, some of the caterers did not provide any of this! If you want coffee and tea service, is that provided or is that a seperate cost? What about the beverages? Are they included with the cost or seperate? Where will the food be prepared? Are there on site facilities or will other arrangements need to be made with the venue to make additional arrangements? Will they work any other weddings on the day of yours? This is a big one because you want to ensure they give your wedding all the attention you need!  Who will be your point of contact if you have any questions prior to the wedding? Do they do cake cutting services?
