Wedding Venue with Connections and Not the Kitchen

Creating a well-crafted food experience is about variety and flexibility. You might think a wedding venue with a kitchen is the level of all-inclusive that makes planning simple. Experience tells a very different story. Why are open vendor polices and preferred vendors a better choice than a restaurant wedding venue? We all want to create the ultimate dining experience for guests on our wedding day, but creating the ultimate relies on our food choices. Knowing your options and having connections can help you make all the right choices about your dining experience on your wedding day.

Why a Wedding Venue is Not a Caterer

Some couples choose to host their wedding in a hotel or a restaurant where the all-inclusive package includes the meal. This can seem like a simple solution if the menu provides, but it will not measure up beside a wedding venue. If you seek to create a unique dining experience with more choices and have the elegant wedding venue beyond comparison, a wedding venue with preferred caterers is the only option. Having menu options limited can negatively affect the dining experience. A wedding venue with an open vendor policy that allows couples the option to choose an outside caterer can provide more freedom with the cuisine in a picturesque setting.

Why a Caterer is Not a Wedding Venue

A caterer naturally provides the fine dining, but the wedding venue provides the fine dining experience. In some rare cases you can find the best of both in one place. More times than not, a caterer specializes in food choices, not weddings. Beware of the jack of all and the ace of none. Trust your dream wedding to the masters in planning and design. Trust your food choices to the culinary artists approved with vendor status at an exceptional wedding venue.
