Top Wedding Caterer related questions

Some questions to ask your Tasker include:

  • How long have you been catering weddings?
  • Do you have photos of past events? 
  • Can I see your menu?
  • When can we schedule a food tasting?
  • Can you accommodate specific dietary restrictions?
  • Where will the food be prepared? 
  • What is your typical server-to-guest ratio?
  • How do you handle extra guests?
  • Can I see your licenses and permits?
  • Can leftovers be given to guests or donated to a charity?

When picking a wedding caterer, consider your budget and guest list. Take time to compare the offers and the menu, extra inclusions (like liquor and cake), and previous customer reviews. You’ll also want to ensure that you and your guests’ dietary restrictions are accommodated. Need a pick-me-up while you and your partner plan your wedding? You can also use Airtasker to get coffee delivered right to your doorstep.

When choosing the wedding food, consider your guest list and budget. The theme & serving style will also play a big part when it comes to your food. If you’re having more of a traditional wedding, a plated dinner will complement this nicely. You and your partner’s preferences should also come into play when planning your menu. If you love Italian food or want to share your Asian heritage, for example, a caterer can help you integrate these into your menu.

Try to book a caterer as soon as 12 months ahead of your big day. This is because caterers, like other wedding suppliers, tend to get booked quite quickly. But if you’ve just got a few months to go, you may still be able to find some available caterers by booking through Airtasker.  

It depends on the caterer you get. Some wedding caterers include linens, dinnerware, glasses, serving dishes, and even tables and chairs. To be on the safe side, put all the inclusions you want in your task post so that only the Taskers who provide all of these will put in an offer. 

It depends. Some couples pick a venue, then decide on a date based on that venue. Others prefer to look for an available venue based on their chosen date. Either way, you should allow around 12 months to plan everything wedding-related, including your catering. Planning a wedding can make you quite tired and hungry, so it’s great to have takeaway options that are just a click away! Airtasker lets you order food from various cuisines and restaurants in your area

What do wedding caterer services include?

When you request a Tasker to cater your wedding, you can typically expect a package that includes food, servers, and sometimes even the dinnerware, tables, and chairs. Different wedding caterers offer different packages and menus, so it is essential to find one whose menu fits your taste and dietary restrictions. Not to mention, their serving style and decor should complement your wedding theme.  

In general, here’s what you can expect from a wedding caterer’s services.

Wedding food options

Wedding feasts can mean anything from brunch or a cocktail-style reception to a 5-course plated dinner (or even a casual barbecue or pizza event!). Caterers typically have a variety of dishes to choose from, as well as recommended combinations. If you and your partner are looking for a specific cuisine, you can easily find Asian, Italian, or French-style caterers on Airtasker. Those with dietary restrictions like Indian or plant based diets can also specify these on the task post. 

Plated meals tend to be the priciest option when it comes to catering since this set-up lets guests mingle without having to get up for seconds. It also allows for attractive plating of each course. Family-style set-ups let guests stay seated and get as much - or as little - as they like from each plate of food. This is an excellent style for those with intimate weddings where the ones at each table are already quite close. 

Buffets have long been a favourite during receptions since they have a casual vibe, cost less, and let guests ask for smaller portions (or come back for seconds).  


Some caterers may also offer beverages (including liquor) as part of their package. These can be served alongside the meals, at a separate buffet table or a bar. A wedding caterer may also include a bartender as part of their inclusions. 

Servers and waitstaff

These servers will set up, serve, tend the bar, refill drinks and food trays, clear tables, and clean up after the reception. When booking a caterer, you’ll want to ask about their guest-to-server ratio to ensure that everyone on your list is accommodated during the event. 

Besides the duties listed above, you can also ask servers to assist with cake cutting and champagne or chocolate fountains. 

Tables, chairs, and dinnerware set-up

If your reception venue doesn’t provide these items, you’ll want a wedding caterer who can rent out all of these items to you. A Tasker may even be able to coordinate the look of the tablecloths and centrepieces to match your wedding theme. 

Once you settle into married life and want to spice up your usual dinner fare, consider using Airtasker to get speciality groceries delivered. Even better, you can ask a private chef to cook a special meal for you and your partner - perfect for your first anniversary!
