Catering       

Catering is crucial for a hen-do because it sets the tone for the event, providing delicious food and drinks to enhance the celebration. A well-chosen caterer can tailor the menu to suit your group’s tastes and dietary needs, ensuring everyone feels pampered and special. Here are some tips for choosing catering to guarantee a memorable event:

  • Sophisticated menu – opt for a catering service specialising in elegant and refined cuisine. Consider classic French dishes, gourmet finger foods, and a selection of fine wines or champagne to complement the celebration.
  • Personalised service – look for caterers who offer personalised menus and are attentive to dietary preferences or restrictions among your group to ensure everyone feels accommodated and special.
  • Experienced staff – choose a catering company with well-experienced staff who understand the nuances of hosting classy hen-do events.
  • Tasting session – if possible, arrange a tasting session with the caterer beforehand. That way, you can sample their offerings and ensure the quality meets your expectations.
  • Flexibility and coordination – ensure the caterer is flexible and can coordinate seamlessly with other aspects of your event, such as venue arrangements and timing.
