I get asked this question a lot:
Here are some tips to help you get started:
- First, gather your ideas-think about your budget, themes, the types of food you and you target audience would like, etc.
- Next, hire an Event Planner, if you prefer. An Event Planner has rapport and connections with vendors you might need. The role as a caterer and event planner is that of a facilitator, mediator, negotiator, artist and dream-maker… all on your behalf.
If you decide to go at it on your own; start researching venues, photographers/ videographers, décor, entertainment, caterers, printers, bakeries, florists, accommodations, transportation, etc. The list goes on and on.
