Three Common Mistakes to Avoid When Hiring an Event and Catering Company 

The hosting of any type of function can be stressful, whether it is a corporate year-end party, a 21st birthday party, or a wedding reception. With details such as menus, tables, chairs, tents, lights, draping, and the likes to cover, it is simply too much for one person.

A function day is especially demanding, and you are likely to forget important details. You want your guests to have a good time and you also want to mingle, but unless all aspects of the event and catering are covered, you most probably will not have a single moment of relaxation.

Event planning is, of course, an essential element of any such a function, whether it is a small and intimate party, or an extravagant gala. If the décor is stunning, the food out-of-this-world good, the service immaculate, the table seating correct, and all the tableware neat, you can expect compliments. However, just one missing detail or mediocre element can ruin the occasion.

So how can you avoid missing an important detail or not having a superb performance throughout? You hire the right function hosting company, or at the very least, make sure that you hire all the equipment and décor from such a company. In order to achieve the dream of a perfect function, you will thus need to avoid the common mistakes as briefly discussed below in hiring an event and catering company. 

  1. Hiring an inexperienced service provider

A company that has been around for a couple of years has also dealt with every type of mistake to avoid. As such, working with an experienced event and catering crew can help prevent mistakes, such as incorrect numbers of tables delivered, wrong seating, a too small tent for the event’s size, inappropriate décor, insufficient lighting, too little food, and more. Work with a company such as TentWorx, reputed for excellence in handling any size event. 

  1. Miscommunication

You may have selected the menu, but if the service provider has not taken the time to understand the exact nature of the function, they will not be able to provide the décor, tent, tables, chairs, glassware, and food that are right for the particular occasion. Make sure that you work with a company that goes through the trouble to understand your exact function requirements. 

  1. Choosing a company based on price

Yes, you have to work within your budget, but you cannot pay the price of an old Volkswagen Beetle and expect the performance of a Mercedes-Benz. This is also true when it comes to event planning. If the price is too low, be concerned, as the company may have to skimp on quality, service, and equipment to work within the limited budget. Choose a firm that offers quality at an affordable and market-related price.
