BBQ Gourmet Style
Things To Know About Our Wedding Services
Essentially, we handle up to three aspects of your wedding.
1) Food: appetizers, main course, desserts and sweet tables
Under most circumstances, your meal will be served buffet style. The main reason for this is that we believe it is a good fit for a bbq style menu. It allows for your guests to customize what they want on their plates, in terms of both quantity and selection. What we often recommend, however, is that dessert and coffee following the meal is table served. Usually, speeches take place during that time, and we do not think it is appropriate for your guests to be leaving their seats.
2) Rentals: tents, tables, chairs, cutlery, plates, and more
This depends on your venue. If your event is taking place in a backyard, you essentially have to create a banquet hall for one night, which can incur significant costs. Some halls include tables, chairs, etc, and although they charge a rental fee, can be a more economical option. In either case, a representative from BBQ Gourmet will visit the location and assess its suitability based on the parameters of your wedding.
3) Servers: waiters, waitresses, bartenders, setup and tear-down staff
These are available from us from a professional staffing agency. The rates are $28.00 per hour per person plus mileage if outside the GTA. They can take care of the preparation of the reception space (seating plan, table setting, basic decor) as per your instructions, plus attending to guests needs during the food service (pouring wine, clearing plates etc.) and then cleanup/tear-down at the end of the night.
Basically, when choosing a caterer for your wedding, you want to find the right fit for your vision. Clients choose us because they want a casual, unique BBQ experience where the focus is on fabulous food cooked fresh on site.
Where to go from here?
Weddings involve much more detail than a typical catered event. Timing, rentals, décor, the choices are many and can be overwhelming. Rest assured; we are here to help. We like to start the process with a telephone conversation usually about 10 minutes in duration. From there we can produce a rough estimate and get the ball rolling.
