When it comes to celebrations we are second to none with every occasion seemingly outdoing the previous one in uniqueness, magnitude or diversity. That being the case, we take our special occasions very seriously with meticulous planning and excruciating attention accorded to every aspect driving the occasion.
In furtherance, it is not surprising that finalising on the banquet and catering partner for any occasion becomes all the more crucial towards making an occasion more memorable, be it weddings, anniversaries, engagements, birthdays, baby showers, conferences or corporate meets. In our endeavour to script events that creates memories and moments that endures a long time, it is not surprising that the food, service, quality & venue has a major role to play.
In appreciation of this fact, here are some points that will help you in choosing the best catering and banquet partner for your special day.
Choose experience over novelty
Important occasions are not the time to experiment and try something new for a change. It is always advisable to choose experience and tenure over a newcomer who might not be ideally prepared to handle the scale, uniqueness and customisation or have the resources, expertise, know-how required towards making your occasion as seamless, hassle free and memorable as you wish it to be.
Never compromise on taste
Although there are many elements that come together for a successful and unforgettable event, there are many who would vouch for the fact that food and its taste is often the overriding factor that determines how memorable the event turns out to be. Although value and budget would always be among the primary determinant, the quality and taste of the food should never be compromised on, and if possible, should take pre-eminence as it is a special skill that only the most premier partner is endowed with and has a special place in the heart of patrons and visitors. So when it comes down to it, taste, service, quality & venue conquer all.
Choose a one-stop provider for all your requirements
It is practically impossible for an entity to make available all the facilities and requirement you may desire. Nonetheless, it is much better to be dealing and coordinating with as many few vendors as possible. You don’t want yourself to be involved with all the painstaking nitty-gritty involved and thereby miss out on the important moments of the special occasion and rue it in hindsight.
So choose a banquet/catering partner who has the expertise, infrastructure and experience handling all your requirements internally or at least possess the requisite network of resources to be able to offer the majority of your requirement at one place, with a single point of contact delivering on your expectations and constantly guiding & lending a helping hand all the way.
There still remains a plethora of things that could influence your decision, ranging from the occasion you have envisioned, the location, the capacity, menu, budget, availability et cetera, but we hope these three quick pointers will help you be on your way towards realising on your special day and making it the best you can and as per what the day deserves.
Here’s wishing you a great occasion.
