Catering For Wedding Receptions
Congratulations on your engagement, and thank you for visiting the site of an award winning Edmonton Wedding Caterer! We will be very happy to help you plan your very special day, and ask that you contact us for ideas for your menus and event planning. Please give us a call at 780-962-3663 or conveniently request a quote below, we look forward to hearing from you!
The first choice you must try and make is whether you will want a buffet meal, a plate service reception, a standup reception with finger foods or a casual event, such as a barbecue. Regardless, remember that we have catered every type of wedding from small intimate gatherings to those in excess of 500 guests. You are in good hands!
Are you considering booking a hall or other facility for your reception, or perhaps a tent in a rural setting. We can help you whether you want us to organize just the food, or everything you need such as table rentals, tent rentals etc.
When comparing your costs, please note that the majority of our quotes include everything you need for a first class affair. All linens, china, glassware and silverware for your table settings are generally included. You will not be rushing off here, there and everywhere picking up this and that from Rental Companies. This is a great help to you, believe me. We have always believed in a “turnkey service”, and have always provided that.
A Buffet Meal are the most popular of all for most types of wedding catering. The guests can go up and help themselves to a wide array of menu items and take as much (or as little) of each item as they like. Elizabethan Catering Services Ltd., has a very successful formula of menu items, and can advise you on the best choices to complement your wonderful menu. If you prefer that the Bridal Party prefers not to go through the Buffet Line, feel special and have us serve you at your head table.
A plate service meal is probably the most elegant way to serve your guests. The guests stay seated at the table and are served course by course. How many courses would you like? Traditionally, a five course meal consists of soup, salad, ﬁsh course, main course and dessert, in that order. Portions are arranged accordingly, so that the guests have had enough to eat, by the time the meal ends. Plate service meals can be very pretty, elegant courses, with a great deal of emphasis on decoration and plating of each menu item.
Feel like a little less formal reception? A Barbecue will be perfect for you! Delicious Ribeye Steaks, Succulent Chicken Breasts, Meaty Pork Ribs, Brisket, Pulled Pork, and many more. All delicious items for you and your guests to enjoy. Chefs and Barbecues are usually provided to make the cooking a totally trouble-free experience. Feel free to mix and match any of the menus to your taste. We want to create a perfect barbecue experience for you and your guests!!
Family Style Meals
A Family Style Meal is one where courses are brought out to the guest tables to serve themselves. It is a very informal way of service and emulates the way of having a meal with family and friends at home. Generally, we serve the Cold and Hot Food all at once, depending on the choices that you have made. It makes sense that the Salads, Cheese, Pickles, Buns etc. are all served with the Hot Food, but as it is your day, share your vision with us, and we will make it happen.
Pig Roast Meals
Head on or off? A Pig Roast is probably the least formal wedding meal that you can have. There is something about a spit roasted pig that makes the pork so delicious; your guests will talk about it for ages! Served with a variety of hot and cold accompaniments, this is truly a special meal and is very popular. As the pig is cooked on a spit in our kitchen, a Winter Pig Roast is not impossible. Like the idea? Check it out.
Hors D’oeuvres are a truly wonderful way of catering just about every conceivable event you can imagine. These can be served to greet your guests as they arrive or as the main attraction. We have a huge selection to choose from, from simple to extravagant. Please feel free to mix and match, and decide how many pieces per person you would like to serve. Please remember that if you serve Hors D’oeuvres over a meal time – guests are expecting a meal!
In the past, we have created dishes from many countries round the globe. Customers have come in to show us what to do (preferred!) or we have been given recipes or researched them ourselves. Either way, you can be assured that your special dishes will be prepared with the utmost care to the culture involved.
How best do we handle this? As in any culture, the list of menu items can be extensive. After many years of successfully catering events like this, Elizabethan Catering Services Ltd., has elected to offer some popular menu items. Discuss them with one of our Chefs or Sales Associates.
Wedding Bar Services
There are many different way that we can handle your bar, if you so wish. The most common and the most cost effective is for you to provide your own liquor and liquor license, and we provide the corkage and bartenders. However, other options are also available to you.
We can use Glass throughout, nice disposable or a combination, where we phase out glass as the night goes on. Wine Stewards are also a very classy way to serve wine to your guests. They quietly go round filling up the guests’ glasses as they enjoy their delicious meal. Water service is generally provided for Weddings.
A Late Lunch is a wonderful way to finish off a perfect evening for you and your guests and is especially important if liquor is being served. There are many different options, and traditionally, this meal has been Buns, Cold Cuts, Cheese, Pickles etc. However, Elizabethan Catering Services has catered an endless list of more interesting options that are worth looking at. You just to have to imagine something different. A Pasta Bar. Pizza. Breakfast. Beef on a Bun etc. etc. Check out our selections and see what you think.
I In this day and age, Dietary Concerns are becoming more and more frequent and need to be addressed. However, the most important part of this necessary topic is not to “poll the audience” about it. My main concern always is an actually allergy or intolerance, not a choice. The first one can be very serious, the second, not so much.
We do offer a tremendous amount of choices in our selections and the list shown will guide you further in knowing that you needs will be met.
