Thanks to everyone who voted for us in CityView Magazine’s ‘Best of the Best’ awards. The results are in, and we have something to celebrate. Bradford Catered Events was named ‘Best Wedding Caterer’ of 2018.
The wedding day is the most important day of a couple’s relationship. Some spend months, or even years, preparing for the perfect day. We know most brides have never planned a wedding before and only have one chance to make it right, so you want to rely on a vendor who will get the job done right.
When considering a caterer, the three most important factors to base your decision on are the food, service and experience. These are the things that could make or break your rehearsal dinner or reception. Food is fuel, and you want your guests to have the energy to dance the night away. Here are the three reasons why Bradford Catered Events was voted the ‘Best Wedding Caterer’ in Knoxville.
Food—We understand food is central to your guests’ enjoyment
Some say that the most important part of a wedding reception, besides the happy couple, is the food. You have a unique vision planned for your ceremony, and the food should fit within that. With catering that is both delicious and beautiful, your guests will be raving about your wedding long after the reception ends.
Start your research by looking at different catering companies’ menu options. Is there a variety for you to choose from? A good caterer should be able to customize any of its menu items to fit any request or dietary restrictions.
At Bradford Catered Events, we are focused on delivering exquisite, catered menu items for you to share with your guests. We have hors d’oeuvres, dinner and station menus online that will get your stomach growling just by reading. Your reception needs to have its own personal, unique flare, enough to leave your guests in awe. That’s why we created the Bradford Microcreamery, an interactive culinary experience that will bring the ice cream shop straight to your reception. The ideas don’t stop there. When you sit down with one of our catering consultants, we will listen to your suggestions and work as hard as possible to make your vision and taste come true.
Service- “Brides Eat First!”
Your wedding day will be a blur. From getting ready to walking down the aisle, saying vows—then suddenly you’re hitched! You don’t want to worry about whether or not your food has arrived or if it’s even warm. We recognize that customer service is truly what distinguishes a phenomenal catering company from a food delivery service.
Lots of ‘catering’ services will only drop the food off at the venue, leaving family members or guests with the task of setting it out. A full-service catering company is an absolute must to ensure that your reception runs properly.
Customer service is one of the defining values at Bradford Catered Events. Our team will deliver, set up and tear down any stations or equipment needed to serve dinner. We are trained to make sure you and your guests leave the reception with both full stomachs and hearts. No matter the size of the guest list, your food is ensured to be served at its freshest. Allow us to cater at your reception, and you won’t be one of those brides who are too busy to eat the food they’re paying for. Our rule is, “brides eat first!”
Experience- Peace-of-mind on your big day
A million things can go wrong on your wedding day but having an experienced caterer can prevent that from happening. The catering company you choose should be able to anticipate and work with any last-minute changes to the big day. Years of experience will make that possible.
It’s imperative to do research online beforehand to find out the type of experience a company has. Reviews from Facebook, Yelp and Google will give a picture of how they’ve worked with brides in the past.
How many receptions have they catered? Have they served at your venue before? Are they the best in the business?
Throughout the years, we have assisted hundreds of happy couples as they plan the most important day of their lives. We’ve seen just about anything. A company with the most experience will be able to answer your questions confidently and thoroughly. By the time you book, you should feel comfortable in your decision and assured that your reception will go off without a hitch.
