Maine Wedding Catering companies

finding the right catering company for your wedding

Odds are, you’ve selected your wedding venue. If you went with a wedding barn or a property that requires a tented reception, you are probably on the search for a catering company. Well, if that’s the case, you’ve come to the right place. With 20+ years experience as a Maine DJ, I’ve provided services at thousands of receptions. Over that time, I’ve worked with some incredible catering companies that I absolutely love and I’m sure you will too. So, for those of you who are looking for the best caterers in Maine, I’ve put together an amazing resource for you!

I provide DJ services primarily for destination weddings. Meaning, couples are coming to Maine to host their wedding reception. As a result, many of the meals I see include staples of the Maine experience. You know what I’m talking about: lobster (for example). Certainly, many of the catering menus at weddings along the coast include seafood. Not surprising, right? Of course not! But, what happens when you get inland? The menu typically changes. One of the first steps in finding the best caterer for your wedding is determining what you want your menu to look like. Once you’ve determined that style of food you want your guests to enjoy you can really narrow down your search for a catering company. The wonderful part when searching through caterers is that many have sample menus available on their website. It’s an awesome resource and one that you should definitely take advantage of!

budgeting for the best wedding caterer 

There’s no getting around it: food and beverage are an area that consume much of your budget. Depending on your venue selection you might need to rent glassware, flatware and everything that makes your meal special. So, what should you budget when hiring a caterer for a Maine wedding? In speaking to couples I work with the price per plate can vary greatly. With some caterers you might be looking at $50 per person. While, with others, you might be looking at $200 per person. So, what do I recommend? Look at your entire budget and determine how much of a priority you want to place on the meal. Then, contact a few catering companies and determine what is realistic. From there, get an idea of the menu. Read reviews. Interview the owner of the company you are strongly consider and then make an informed decision. Perhaps scheduling a tasting is worth your time and energy. Even if it costs you a few bucks to schedule this with multiple companies is it worth knowing the caterer you’re hiring provides quality food that you and your guests will enjoy? I think so!
