Working with Chef James was great. This was my first time using catering for a party. He made the process of creating the menu very easy. He did a great job of explaining the quote and communication of the itinerary the day of the event. Last but most importantly the food was spectacular. Everyone at the party was raving.

Diana's service was extraordinary! The food she prepared was well thought out, freshly prepared, wide in variety, and absolutely delicious! Our guests commented on how they really enjoyed the dishes served. Just wonderful! In addition to the wonderful appetizers and main entrees, Diana's talent shined through her creation of an exquisite cake. Her creation was both beautiful and scrumptious! ...almost too pretty to cut and serve! We truly enjoyed it! I will gladly turn to Couture Cake again when planning a large family event. Diana helped me provide for over sixty people with a gracious and caring demeanor. Her personal service is not often found today and I considered it a real gift! I highly recommend Couture Cake because of the wonderful food and service offered by Diana. Very special, indeed!

We had a great experience working with Donna. She was extremely responsiveness during the entire process, from planning to day-of. Donna also understood our specific needs and was happy to adapt the menu and services for us. The food was excellent. The most compliments from the diners praised the beef tenderloin tips. The green beans almandine were nice and crisp (not all overcooked and limp). The Bistro chicken had a very good flavor, although some pieces were just a bit dry. But everyone did enjoy all the food, and had nothing but compliments for the caterer. The staff was easy to work with, professional, and friendly. We were happy with how it all came together, and would recommend Frankies.

A true professional with a sophisticated palate- can cook or demonstrate any level skill you might require. She has often prepared my own recipes with ease and comfort. She and her team are equally adept preparing and serving for a small group or a very large number with equal results. Holiday cooking is a snap to serve with her freshly prepared foods ready to serve in your home in your own kitchen. Fantastic, easy to understand directions. No matter what she serves or teaches you, you will feel you are in the very best hands with true professional skills. Her company name is well-chosen. Chef Becca cooks with true heart. You won't be disappointed.

Brittney was great to work with! I was lucky to find her since I'm not from the Milwaukee area. The food was great and very reasonably priced, she was prompt, and she helped me to figure out exactly what I needed. We had a great party and I have Brittney to thank for it!

Can't say enough about Rosa's talent, she takes, edits, and develops beautiful pictures that captures the moment/memory perfectly. I have several of her enlarged framed works hanging in my home and her photo albums bring rave reviews from all my friends. The picture selection, layout, and composition are perfect. You can trust Rosa completely with her skill at preserving the precious and endearing Times of your Life

Pure stems provided the flowers for my daughter's wedding. The event was outdoors and casual. Christine gathered vintage vases and pots and created arrangements that were both understated and gorgeous. She has an eye for the unique and makes it all look easy and unfussy. Everyone commented on how beautiful the arrangements were.

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.

How much does it cost to hire a caterer?

Catering prices depend mainly on how fancy you want the food and service to be and how many guests you’ll have. When you’re first looking to hire a caterer for your event, consider how many guests you’ll have and your total food and drink budget. The national average for event catering is $340, but catering prices can range into the thousands depending on your menu, guest count, and service.

Event catering is a broad term that covers everything from fully prepared, ready-to-eat food that the hosts plate and serve themselves to full-service, multicourse meals, including rental of linens, glassware and other items, with service staff organized by the catering company. Usually a caterer will determine cost based on the type of event you’re having, how many guests will attend, the level of service you desire, and what type of menu you’d like to have. For example, if you have a set catering budget, say $1,500, and you plan to have 50 people attend, that means you have $30 per person for food. If you have the same budget with 100 people, you have $15 per person for food. In this way, the number of people you want to attend your event and the level of food you want to serve them determines how much catering will cost.

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.
