Don't Worry About Keeping Up with the Joneses

More Savvy Tips

Just because the Jones family had a sit-down prime rib dinner for their daughter’s wedding that doesn’t mean you can’t opt for something else, like a wonderful hors d’oeuvres reception. The caterers say keep an open mind and let the professionals use their creativity. You should insist on a taste test before hiring a caterer. After all, you wouldn’t buy a car without a test-drive.  And tell the caterer about guests’ dietary restrictions. They can usually accommodate you with advance notice. Finally, many people forget that all the leftover food and beverages are yours after a catered event. Don’t be shy about asking for a very large doggy bag!
