Any monumental moment in our lives calls for the very best of food and drink. A wedding is no exception — and sometimes, in an effort to make their wedding stand out from the rest, couples are guilty of making some pretty crazy requests of their wedding caterers. Some of these dreams the pros are able to deliver on, while others… well, it just wouldn’t be sanitary. 😂
(Live chickens is a NO for me, I want it from a grocer)!
Weddings often come with hiccups that no one can predict or plan for! However, it’s the best wedding caterers who can step in and save the day, even with little resources. We’ve had and seen all kinds of things over the years along with some pretty interesting requests & situations.
Sometime back I was given a few weeks to restructure all of the bride & grooms plans, and devise a way to serve out a reception for 150 people in the middle of a field with no running water, & no electricity. We of course was able to pull it off. We pre-cooked everything we could & use the food truck to finish preparing & warming.
Thank goodness I bought the food truck & thankfully had generators!
Another time at a wedding on Mexico beach several years back the cake baker was delivering her masterpiece & she fell going up the stairs to the reception area and just like that one side of cake had been smashed. It looked completely unsalvageable! Some quick thinking & creativity I took the cake, cut off the smashed area & improvised with fruit.. it looked like it was made that way. No-one was the wiser!
As in life weddings, and events are unpredictable, ￼ask the right questions when hiring your cater!
