The famous saying “food is the way to a man’s heart” can take another meaning; when the mouth to please goes from one to a whole party. Before the “something borrowed, something blue, and something new” love rendezvous comes, weeks (and maybe even months or years) of meticulous planning. Brides go to extreme efforts to nail down the specifics that will make or break their special day. We’re talking photographer, venue, and the icing on the cake (literally the food), it’s no wonder couples everywhere are taking their time to peruse on through the extensive list of caterers floating around. When it comes to feeding the guests after they’ve had to suffer through a drawn out ceremony-we’re only kidding!- it is important to deliver the food to get them in the mood and the energy to dance the night away! With so many caterers, menu options, and budgets in mind, finding the perfect caterer can seem like an on-going, endless search.
Let your fear stop here as we suppress all the stress that comes with picking the perfect meal for YOUR BIG DAY! Sure, we strongly encourage test driving multiple caters. Who passes up the opportunity for a free lunch anyhow? Y.Lo offers complimentary tastings so our clients can “try before they buy.”
Additionally, many caterers take care of just the food and nothing else… which inevitably means more homework and hard work on your part. Here at Y.Lo we strive to make planning your wedding as painless as possible! From the flowers, set-up, the bar, a photo booth, and of course the food you name it we can tackle it for you! What are some of the more popular menu choices we’ve come across in our time as caterers you ask? Well, most couples go with two entrees in addition to a few appetizers, a mixed salad, and rolls, for variety. We suggest our tasty Honey Mustard Chicken with Grilled Asparagus & Grilled Beef Tenderloin with a tangy horseradish to pair with! We must not forget the few family members and friends who are on strict dietary restrictions. To satisfy the vegetarians in the crowd, we recommend our hearty stuffed Mellow Portobellos. The even more rare gluten free, dairy free, or vegan guests will take comfort in seeing they have been thought of like everyone else.
Any way you slice it, the main course, is the most important component of a wedding next to the “I Do’s.” Pick a catering company that is dedicated to making any wedding the talk of the century! Before wedding bells rings, feel free to give Y.Lo a ring to plan your wedding!
