I am so glad that we chose Mr. WorldWide Catering for our wedding day! My husband and I both wished we could have had more time to have eaten way more tacos, it was so good! Everyone loved the food and when we walked around to see everyone during dinner, all everyone could say was how much they enjoyed it! Jose worked with our budget and was amazing through the whole process - I would recommend him to anyone looking for a professional, friendly, and talented caterer!

We hired Gourmet Lovers Catering for our wedding that was on July 23, 2016, honestly nothing but AMAZING!!!. From the very first contact till the very day of the event, everything went smoothly, everyone was on top of everything and Carolina and Boris were always attentive and making sure that we were worried free for our special day. When we first contacted Gourmet Lovers Catering, Carolina was very quick to respond and be at our services in any way possible. Both Carolina and Boris are so very down to earth, sweet and beyond helpful. With Carolina's great customer service, we knew that we definitely had to set up a food tasting in which I still remember her exact words were "come hungry" and let me tell everyone who is reading this that she is not kidding!! :). The food trial was very, very impressive. Personally I am a person who admires presentations and if I do not see quality presentations it is a turnoff but Gourmet Lovers blew us away!!! One of the best presentations and food tastings that we had experienced when trying to find catering for our wedding. Both Carolina and Boris were very welcoming, so welcoming that we pretty much felt like family. The presentation was beautiful for being just a tasting they went above and beyond. The quality, freshness and taste of the food was beyond words, all the food that was tasted literally melted in your mouth. Everything that was tasted was delicious. We ended up choosing the Marsala Chicken. After the tasting, Carolina was constantly available all the time in case anything changed or any questions needed to be answered. Just everything was great, it was perfect. The day of our wedding, all of our guests loved the food that guests were going back for seconds. Their staff was amazing. During the whole night, we had a personal server attending to our every need (I apologize but we do not remember his name but he was super sweet and beyond helpful, Carolina and Boris if you can remember the gentleman please tell him a big thank you from us). Once again, everything was awesome. Carolina and Boris are very passionate about what they do and it shows within their service and work. From the bottom of our hearts, we want to say thank you, thank you, a million times thank you for catering our wedding. Carolina and Boris, you guys are amazing and we simply adore you. Thank you for making our wedding worry free and delicious!!!

Ana made our April wedding extra special and delicious. From the very beginning, she was attentive and offered various options for the grilled meals (the hubby and I don't like buffets). We ordered appetizers, mains, and desserts. A notable number of guests raved about the food and asked for Ana's information. As a bride who floated around in a dreamlike love state on my wedding day (those who've been there know exactly what I mean), I managed to take bites of every dish (usually off my girlfriends' and husband's plates). That was enough to highlight that the shrimp skewer was flavored so perfectly that it made my mouth water even after I ate it. The cheesecake cupcake was outstanding, and I still daydream about it. Maybe another even is in order? Just for the food. Thank you, Ana! Words cannot express how happy we are to have found you!

I hired Sierra Madre to cater a come-and-go brunch for close friends and out-of-town guests the morning after my daughter’s wedding. Initially I was concerned about travel time from Monrovia to my home in the Larchmont area of Los Angeles, but Tonya (owner-chef) assured me she would allow for all eventualities and be there with plenty of time to set up and be ready before the guests arrived. The menu was mimosas, orange juice, lox, bagel & cream cheese (with the usual trimmings), vegetarian omelets, pancakes, cut fruit, and sour cream coffee cake, coffee and tea. Everything turned out perfect! Tonya and her assistant, Chris, were at my house early, got set up and were ready to go before the guests started arriving. The food was wonderful. The on-the-spot food, pancakes and omelets, were outstanding; and Tonya’s sour cream coffee cake was a BIG hit. The guests loved everything. The only glitch was an under estimation of how much lox, bagels and cream cheese the guests would consume. Fortunately, I had anticipated that could happen and had an extra 60 ounces of lox on hand and an extra pint of cream cheese, and we have two bagel shops within walking distance. Tonya was great to work with and having her cater made my life so much easier. It was a beautiful brunch, within my budget, and I am thankful that I took the chance on hiring her company as I had relied solely on the Thumbtack reviews when I made the choice. I’ll definitely use Sierra Catering again. The only suggestion I might make is that more attention be paid to the serving dishes used. Mixing bowls really aren’t attractive bowls to put on the buffet table.

Steven and Mariel did an outstanding job catering my event (low key gathering of friends). I requested Latin American - theme. They prepared delicious guacamole + chips, fried queso, vegetable quesadillas, chicken lettuce wraps and pork tacos with corn tortillas. I was expecting guests with a gluten allergy and guests who are vegetarian. Steven worked with me to customize the perfect menu within my budget. I will be using Steven again in the future. Next time for a more sophisticated professional event in my home.

When I asked the chef about catering an event for a wedding, You set up a face-to-face consultation and was there on time. Chef David asked many questions guaranteeing and making sure all of our desires were known addressed and met. How many people, what type of food, any Allergies, Ect... The chef explained to us that he was a full service catering service, he set up tablecloths ,silverware, plates He even offered to get the center pieces (although we already had them picked out). The day of the wedding Chef David and his crew came to the venue and proceeded to set up for 80 people and cook. He created one of the most fantastic wedding dinners I have ever been able to enjoy.. Chef Dave, when I need another event catered, you are my guy! Thank you much forall your help.

Living Veg provides years of experience to their clients with professional expertise and a committed focus on details along with the personalization to what the client desires. When you add these qualities to the truly delicious food that is delivered, you have a very rare combination in catering that is 2nd to none. If you are looking for a caterer for any type of event, whether it be a small business lunch for a corporate meeting or a larger event, such as a beautiful wedding or other family celebration, I would strongly recommend that you contact Shelley at Living Veg. You will receive far more than you expect as well as an overall plan that will fit perfectly within your budget.

Fitch's Kitchen catered my wedding at the Wedding Tree in Point Fermin Park in San Pedro, CA. The food was delicious, it was delivered on time, and Fitch was very understanding about a hiccup with my payment method and delivered food anyway, making sure my day wasn't ruined by an oversight (that was my own doing). I had several guests comment on the food and ask where it was from. THANK YOU!!!

I am thrilled to share with you my experience with Chef LaTay. First it must said, her food is AMAZING. In Jan 2015, I married the love of my life; I had a small backyard wedding of about 75 ppl total and Chef LaTay catered the food for my special day. We decided to go with Tri-Tip Roast, Fully loaded mashed potatoes, Green Beans, and Salad. Her food was a hit. Delicious and memorable. My guests were happily fed and pleased with every bite and so was I. In the past, Chef LaTay would do weekly orders every Friday and Saturdays where she would deliver her meals to those local near her. It was a huge meal that came with dessert and a drink, worth the price indeed. That’s where/when I would also have some of her other delicious foods. My personal favorites are her Macaroni and Cheese, her Salmon, her Enchiladas, her Chicken (every way she makes it), and her Oxtail. She also makes wonderful tasty desserts. Her cakes are all homemade and are to die for. I love her Chocolate cake and her frostings are the best! Better than any other cakes I’ve had. And I can’t forget the dessert my husband and I always ask for throughout the year, Banana Pudding! Again, AMAZING! It is an honor to have Chef LaTay’s food be a part of my life. Every delicious bite makes you wish there was no such thing as getting full. Having her for your events or for a small special occasion, you won’t be disappointed. Chef LaTay is very creative with her food and service. She comes with class and excellent customer service. She makes sure you get what you asked for; just very professional with a welcoming loving spirit. Chef LaTay It’s Made Devine is worth your time to try her food, because I guarantee you, you’ll be asking for more!

I was hesitant to get a planner at first because we were working with a very small budget, but Ira was (is) absolutely amazing. She worked within our budget, helped my plans materialize and made my wedding day beyond incredible. She is such a hard worker, so kind, and very knowledgeable for the planning industry.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do you find a good caterer?

Reviews, interviews and menu tastings will help you find the right catering choice for your big day. Start by screening possible wedding caterers based on past reviews. If a caterer you are interested in has a review that concerns you, ask them about it; how they respond will be very telling. Next, ask about their availability for your wedding date.

If the wedding caterer is available on your date, it’s time to talk about menus and prices. Be clear about what your maximum budget is find out what choices this will allow you. Caterers may custom-create a menu for your event, or they may have menu templates within different price ranges that can guide your decision. A clear budget gives the caterer clear parameters within which to work and offer creative suggestions. Schedule a menu tasting to confirm you love your wedding menu. Once you have a menu and date, and have paid a deposit to reserve the caterer’s services, confirm additional details including when the food will be delivered to the site, what kind of service will be provided, how many servers will be onsite and for how long, and who is responsible for setup and cleanup. The more specific your contract, the fewer worries you’ll have on your wedding day. Get more smart hiring tips here.

How much does wedding catering cost per person?

Wedding catering costs will always vary based on the number of guests you’re inviting, the menu you want to serve, and the way the food will be served to your guests. As you interview wedding catering companies, you’ll be presented with a cost per person for various menus. On the low end, wedding catering may cost approximately $15-$18 per person. This would include prepared food only, with no setup or service of any kind. The starting price for a simple buffet meal with minimal service typically averages $22 per person. Opting for the same menu with all organic ingredients could raise your costs to about $33 per person. A moderately upscale menu (finer ingredients, more elaborate presentation) could range from $24 to $34 per person. High-end wedding catering cost truly has no limit. Lobster, filet mignon, specialty seafood, organic ingredients — menu choices like these can boost your cost per person up to $150 and more.

What should you look for in a caterer?

A delicious meal is a critical element of a successful wedding, with happy guests fondly remembering your fabulous wedding food. The right caterer for you will be:

  • Available: Even the best caterer is no good if they aren’t available on your wedding date. Ask early before you get your heart set on someone.
  • Affordable for you: Find a caterer that you can afford. Having a spending plan ahead of time will mean you won’t overspend on food.
  • A good personality fit: Wedding planning is stressful, so work with someone that you can get along with and communicate with easily.
  • Experienced and recommended: Ensure the company has a proven track record with events of your size and the references to back it up.
  • Transparent about money: Steer clear of shady pricing. Find a caterer who is very clear about costs and is happy to talk you through budgets and pricing options.
  • Transparent about food: Find someone who is clear about where they source their food from and where it is prepared.

How much should catering cost for a wedding?

The cost of wedding catering will reflect the level of service, the menu you choose, the luxury you desire and the number of guests you invite. Where you live also plays a major role in your wedding catering costs. The regional cost to do business and local cost of food will affect your catering bill. There is no set price for wedding catering, because each wedding and each menu is different. This is why many caterers provide a per-person price. This allows you to break down what it costs to feed each person based on the menu you want. Working with your caterer, you can adjust menu items, service level and more to accommodate your budget and guest count. Keep in mind that wedding catering costs are not just for the food. The bill reflects all the components that go into commercial food catering: a commercial kitchen, ingredients, staff, insurance, marketing and more. Here are some examples of average costs:

  • Three-course plated meal, moderately upscale, for 125 in Los Angeles: $14,000. Because of staffing costs, a true plated meal costs about twice as much as a staff-assisted buffet.
  • Buffet meal, standard menu, for 100 in Los Angeles: $5,000.
  • Per-person cost for hors d'oeuvres, dinner and nonalcoholic beverages: $24–$37, depending on menu selection, in Southern California.
  • Drop off prepared food for 50: $1,000 in North Carolina. Price does not include any service, setup or breakdown.

How do you serve food at a wedding?

Food service at your wedding will affect your catering costs and influence the atmosphere of the reception. Buffet style is more informal; plated meals are a bit fancier; family style encourages sharing. Read about the different food service styles to select your preferred wedding catering choice.

  • Buffet: Caterers can drop off prepared foods for a DIY and budget-friendly buffet option where you set everything up and food is entirely self-service. For a fuller-service buffet, the caterers set up food, oversee the buffet throughout the event, and clean up afterwards. For food only, prices per person might average $16-$18, while a service buffet may start around $20-$22 per person. Adding food stations can increase per-person costs by at least $3-$5.
  • Family style: Servers bring large platters of food to guest tables in courses. It’s less formal (and less expensive) than a plated meal, but more formal and higher-cost than a buffet. You’ll need large tables to accommodate the platters, so plan accordingly when renting furniture for the event.
  • Plated: A plated event is a formal dining experience; waitstaff serve your seated guests for each course, fill their drinks, and attend to them throughout the dinner. A plated dinner is typically the most expensive option for both food and service.
  • Food trucks: Similar to buffets, with food trucks your guests get their own food and bring it to their table. A food truck gives a relaxed and playful vibe to your reception.
  • Cocktail reception: If you don’t want a formal seated dinner, you can opt for a wide assortment of passed appetizers at an extended cocktail hour reception.
