I had a great experience with TCG, considering it was a last minute event. I live in TX and was in Miami visiting my family when my brother told me he was getting married and was planning a small wedding ceremony. Mind you, this was about 8 days prior to his ceremony date. I searched for local catering companies and chose TCG. Alan, the manager, reached out to me via phone and e-mail. From the beginning he was very, very helpful and I greatly appreciate his professionalism and patience with the last minute event. He greatly helped me out choosing the right menu and the rental equipment at a low cost, fast, and convenient. I definitely recommend TCG and I'd use them again for future events. =) Thank you Alan!

We had service for a wedding reception in Hollywood FL. I was pleased with Tim's willingness to serve my guest promptly. My guest enjoyed the food and that was the most important to me. Upon seeing the dishes we had prepared for us I did feel the cost was too much. However, I had accepted the proposal and was willing to adhere to my agreement without discussion. In future, if you ask your hostess/host a question and you receive an answer, don't ask numerous times. I was asked for the flatware and dishes about 4 times, it drove me crazy!

We hired Gwen for our wedding. I asked for specific ethnic foods and she delivered exactly what I wanted. We asked for Latin and Haitian cuisine. Our families were very happy as she delivered authentic dishes. Gwen and her crew set up quickly and left the area spotless. Will definitely hire again for future events. Hire her you will NOT be disappointed.

I met Renee by referral, as I was planning a wedding for two dear friends. Her energy, and expertise were the perfect fit! As is the case with any formal affair, there were daily changes, and I'm sure I was making her crazy! However, she never waivered, and kept her focus and energy. The food was exceptional! We chose to have three themed 'food stations'... Asian, Latin, and Mediterranean. and it was an elegant white on white affair! The location was at the Brides' home, on the water, under a clear topped tent, with amazing lighting, and under a full moon! She also handled the creation of huge and stunning Ice Vases as centerpieces. Her attention to detail, and her follow up were critical, and she and her crew received a rousing applause from the wedding guests! I even managed to get her out of the kitchen and onto the dance floor, for "Because I'm Happy!" One additional note... I was not only the wedding planner, but I was also in the wedding party, so my nerves were on edge, being at the church, while things unfolded at the reception. We arrived in our limos to find everything moving right along as planned! Hope to work with her team again in the future. Everything was Absolutely Delish! Thank you, Renee!!

    Mine is a french infused style cuisine. Where the entree is the star of the plate, I mostly enjoy working with seafood because it's a delicate entree which requires a lot of attention!

    About

    Hi all! I'm a seasoned and professional wedding and corporate event planner. I have my CWP and CMP license with 12 years of experience. My services include sourcing (venue selection), site and planning visits, contract negotiation, room design and layout, vendor selection (floral, linen, entertainment) audio visual needs, food and beverage selection, menu tasting, transportation, hotel room blocks, event logistics, timelines and checklists, and day-of coordination and execution. For events taking place at a hotel, I will ensure you're meeting the food and beverage minimum, handle load-in and load-out of vendors, and retain/submit completed vendor guideline rules and COIs as needed. For weddings, I will uphold religious and cultural preferences and assist in securing the following services: hair, makeup, photography, and videography. I will secure vendors or work with those you've chosen. Additional miscellaneous areas I specialize in include offsite catering, tuxedo rentals, rehearsal and dinner, security, city permits and special licensing, destination events, and printing (place cards, menus, directional signage). I've worked for DMCs and only Five Diamond hotels focusing on groups and special events. I have a significant network of industry professionals as a South Florida native, and offer my services at an extremely fair cost and below the industry standard. If you only require day-of coordination, I request two meetings (at minimum) in advance and in person to review the content and discuss expectations. Advanced meeting is on a complimentary basis. Through service and friendship, I look forward to assisting you!

    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.

    Do you tip a wedding caterer?

    Tipping 15 percent to 20 percent on a $3,000 catering bill can feel daunting — especially in light of all the other costs of throwing a wedding — but tipping your wedding caterer is standard practice. Be sure to ask your caterer about their specific policies. Many catering companies include gratuity as a line item on their bill. If tipping is not automatically included in your total, a good approach is to tip all the people involved the day of the event rather than paying one lump sum to the catering company. For each server and bartender, you can tip $20-$50, depending on how long they were onsite and whether they did exceptional work. You can also tip the chef; experts suggest $50. It’s also a good idea to tip the catering manager, the point-of-contact person who keeps the catering service running smoothly the day of your wedding, ensures all the food looks beautiful and is plentiful, and resolves any mishaps. Industry pros recommend tipping the catering manager $100-$200. If gratuity is not included and you’re tipping individuals, set aside $200-$500 in cash to be safe.

    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 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.
