After searching for months, I hired Veronicas for my wedding catering. I loved their flexibility, their prices, and their great attitude to work with our needs. Their prices include things that other caters charge ridiculous amounts for. I am originally from Colombia and I wanted to implement a little part of my culture to the wedding, since the majority of guest were from here Veronica and Daniel tried to work out a menu to fit my needs and the needs of my guests. On the day of my wedding I didn't have to worry about the food, they took care of everything. From the appetizers to the desserts. The food was excellent and my guest were very pleased with the food. I have other friends that are getting married this year and have asked about our catering choice. I have been so pleased with their work, that I have also hired them for my work events.

Jenna was so incredibly easy to work with! She took all of the stress away from planning food for our wedding, she responded quickly, had professional staff with her who were all dressed appropriately, adapted to the resources we had available, showed up early to start preparing food, had everything ready on time and was a highlight for our day. Not to mention, the food was AMAZING!!!! We had so many compliments and people asking for her information, because the food was so delicious! I have seen Jenna prepare food for smaller groups and also groups the size for our wedding (100 for dinner and 400+ for the reception) and every time it has been delicious! I would recommend Jenna 10/10 times and know you will not be disappointed with her cooking!

Vicky catered a wedding rehearsal dinner for approximately 100 people. Everything from soup to nuts. She did an amazing job, and all of the guests were extremely pleased with the food, the quality of the food, the presentation, and we were pleased with the value we got for the dollars we spent. She arrived early and stayed late. I would hire her again in a moment.

Attended a wedding reception with my wife. So impressed with the quality of the desserts had to find out who did them. The brownies and the chocolate cake filled with fresh strawberry filling was to die for. Looking for sweets for occasion? I recommend Something Frosted.

We hired Rex and Cathy to provide a dinner for our wedding, and they were absolutely fantastic! We aren't from Salt Lake originally, but wanted to get married here. Unfortunately, this meant we didn't have a whole lot of help from family when it came to planning. Rex and Cathy were really the first cog for the event we found, and everything started to come together after we booked them. They were a real delight to work with: exceptionally polite, flexible, fun, and punctual. Because of them, we started to believe that we could actually pull off planning a wedding. They even invited us over to their house to try the food, which was exceptional. Our wedding was outside, and on the big day, it dumped rain. Rex and his team showed up with a pop up tent though, and had plenty of manpower to get the job done. They fed 120 people with no problems, and even specially prepared vegetable lasagna for our vegetarian guests! All of our guests also enjoyed watching the preparation of the meal and the Dutch Oven cooking, it was extra entertainment! After the dinner, we received several compliments on the food, and many of our guests went back for seconds and thirds. For us it was much more intimate than having a caterer show up with pre-made food in chaffing dishes. If you’re looking to host an event, you can’t go wrong with Carroll’s Custom Cooking, these guys are the best! The food was absolutely delicious, but more importantly, they took a lot of stress off of our backs knowing that our guests would be happy.

These guys bartended my wedding and reception of 200 people. They took so much stress off of me as they were on time and took very good care of my guests. Friendly and hard-working, I can't recommend them enough. Next time I need a bartender, I won't be looking anywhere else.

I met the owner Paul at the Salt Lake city airport before my flight back to Dallas. We talked for a little before he let me know he owned a dessert catering company. He gave me a couple samples before I boarded my flight. I had the salted caramel cookie and peruvian chocolate brownie. I have to say, hands down the best brownie I've ever had. I just wished I had milk on the flight. Definitely will be calling him the next time I'm in Salt Lake City.

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.
