Instead, get yourself out into the countryside, into the city or down to the coast and look at plants, trees, wildlife, pebbles, anything that catches your eye really.

5. Pick a Caterer

What are the types of wedding catering services?

When should you find a caterer for your wedding?
Ideally, you should plan to start researching your wedding caterer between 10 and 12 months before your big day, with the goal of booking your caterer between six and eight months out. If you’re planning your wedding on a more condensed timeline, a good rule of thumb is to book as soon as possible.


What does a caterer do at a wedding? A caterer arranges the preparation, delivery, and presentation of food for clients. If you’ve ever attended a bridal shower, fund raiser, rehearsal dinner, wedding reception, or a bar mitzvah that had beautifully prepared and presented food, chances are that event was catered.   

Do caterers provide linens?
Some caterers provide the glasses and other dinnerware, linens, tables, chairs, serving dishes, etc. Caterers often have a selection of dinnerware and linens in a limited range. It may be possible for them to obtain a special request from a wedding equipment vendor. The price will increase if this is the case.
