Planning a Wedding? Jerry’s Kitchen Answers Your Top Planning Questions

When it comes to planning a wedding, there are a lot of things to consider. Your mind might be racing right now about where to even begin. Here are three common questions that couples often ask, and what we like to tell them.


Question #1: How do we determine a budget for our event?

The bride and groom should discuss their overall budget for the wedding and decide which components are more important to them. For some it’s food and beverage, for others it could be the venue, photographer, music, etc.


One of the best places to start with your budgeting is guest count. The cost of the wedding, especially the reception, is generally based on guest count. The number of guests in attendance will ultimately determine the size of your venue and how much food and beverage you’ll need to provide.


Question #2: How does a couple select what food style/theme is best for them?

For starters, think about what you want your wedding experience to be– casual, fun or upscale. Then consider the costs associated with that decision. It is important to note that station chefs are more expensive than buffet attendants and more servers are required when you have a seated meal. Stations are great to consider when there are a variety of guests with different tastes and/or dietary needs.


Question #3: What should one take into consideration when choosing a venue?

Location, guest count, availability and cost are great things to consider initially. Tour a few locations to get an idea of which location will fit in with your theme and desired experience.


Other questions that are important to consider: Do you have a lot of out of town guests? Would a hotel better suit yours and your guests’ needs? Can you have the ceremony on property or is it too small? Will there be other events simultaneously or is the whole property yours? Does it offer convenient parking?
