- Wedding: November 2013
Fiance and I are planning on a 11:30 b’deken, 12:00 chuppah, 12:30ish start of reception on Sunday, November 10, 2013.
When talking to kosher caterers, they have informed us that all food would basically have to be purchased by Thursday. Then, some food prep could be done until chatzos erev Shabbat on Friday, possibly begin again after motzi Shabbat, and continue early Sunday morning. Then, they’d need time to pack up the food, drive/deliver/unpack, reheat, lay out… by 12:30ish.
We’re concerned that the food will taste bad, be cold, etc. We’re not really kosher-keepers and haven’t been to many kosher weddings; we know the industry is used to this, but since we’re mostly doing this at the request of the mesader kiddushin… can anyone else talk to us about the timing of their catering schedule? What was your food like? Will our guests hate us forever?
