BBQ Gourmet Weddings
Weddings: 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 be table served, as it allows your guests to stay seated during speeches.
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 $30.00 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.
Contact us today 416-783-7257. Event consultants are available Monday-Friday 9am-5pm.
Wedding planning is a lot of work. Between finding a venue, getting flowers, deciding on your décor theme, and of course the food! We want to make the catering aspect of your wedding the easiest. We’ve been catering weddings for over 20 years and have learned a lot along the way. From our food knowledge and relationships with vendors, our wedding specialist would be happy to help you plan your big day!
Our service is buffet style. We believe this is a good fit for a BBQ meal, as it gives your guests the ability to control exactly what they want on their plate. All of the menus in our wedding package are thoughtfully put together, however we can work with you to create a completely custom menu. Once you’ve chosen your menu, we can set up a tasting where you and your fiancé will get to try out your potential wedding menu!
Whether you are getting married at a venue or outdoors in a backyard we can help figure out your rentals needs! Our rental partner Higgins has everything you need to create an outdoor venue; tent, dancefloor, lighting, and tables and chairs for your guests. They have a beautiful showroom that you can set up an appointment to check out. We also have pre set rental packages that include tableware, glassware, and other miscellaneous items.
Staffing is another important part of your wedding. We work with professional staffing agencies and can hire wait staff and bartenders to make your day run smoothly. With your guidance they can help with table settings and once the food service has started they will pass appetizers, clear dinner plates, refill water glasses, etc. The bartenders will set up the bar area, serve drinks, and tear down the bar at the end of the night.
Having BBQ Gourmet cater your wedding will leave a lasting impression that won’t be forgotten. Our combination of elegant food presentation and efficient service style will leave you with one less thing to worry about on your big day!
