Philippine celebrations are never complete without a gastronomic feast. Fact is, Filipinos are food lovers. We eat whenever there is something to celebrate. This is why it is customary among Filipinos to highlight a wedding celebration with a wedding feast.
“(Burp)… that was an amazing wedding.”
Philippine weddings will never be complete without the couple preparing food for their guests. In fact, it is probably the food at the wedding reception that will be remembered most by the guests. They will more likely forget other wedding details, except for the couples’ wedding catering.
Good food equals satisfied wedding guests. And every couple wants nothing but to satisfy their guests with mouth-watering dishes and excellent food service. To hear them ‘burp’ with fulfillment and happily say “that was an amazing wedding,” is a couple’s benchmark to a successful wedding celebration.
A Celebration of a Lifetime
Be it a simple or a festive wedding celebration, food will be the couple’s largest expense, usually taking as much as 45 to 50 percent of their wedding budget. So it is very important for the couple to get their money’s worth by choosing the right wedding caterer for their most special day.
Professional wedding caterers make food preparation easy and beautiful for busy couples. These wedding professionals can handle everything – from food preparation, to presentation, to serving, and of course, the post-party cleanup. With good wedding caterers, couples can hop from one table to another worry-free, knowing their guests are well-served and fed.

There are hundreds of wedding caterers in Manila. This is why couples should be careful in choosing the one that will service their special day. Couples can take a look at the caterer’s professional background, wedding portfolio and sample their wedding menu through food tasting programs.
