The 3 Cs For A Hog Roast Wedding Catering

Author : Clement Divin

Weddings are one of the most memorable events in a person’s life. That’s why it’s important to get every detail right, especially for something as tedious as the wedding catering. However, not all brides have the luxury of having their own personal wedding planner by their side to help them through all the preparations.

Hog Roast wedding catering can be a disaster if not done right. But if you’re a bride on a budget and you’re left with no choice, then here are some tips to help you satisfy the taste buds of your wedding guests.


The first thing to consider is hiring a hog roast machine for your hog roast wedding catering and the number of people you’ll be cooking for. If you’re thinking of inviting 500 guests, then it’s probably not best if you do the cooking yourself. Limit your guests to a number that’s realistic. Remember that your budget isn’t only going to be spent on food.

Once you’ve had a solid number in mind, the next step is to count how many people are available to help. You’re not going to be able to do everything yourself. So go out and find reliable people â€" like your mom, aunt, or best friend â€" to help.


Now, if you have a list of names that can help you, the next step is to coordinate tasks.

It’s best not to be too involved with all the wedding catering preparations because you’ll still have other things to worry about. So a good strategy would be to select a team leader and delegate your tasks to her. That way, you know the group won’t fall apart even if you’re attending to other pressing matters.

You should also coordinate the tasks that each person in your team should do. Make sure you assess each of their abilities so that you know which job to assign to whom. It’s important to note that even if you have hundreds of willing helpers, it doesn’t mean that they have the skills to do the job right.


Once you’ve got your team assembled, then it’s time to face the hardest aspect of wedding catering: the cash. Initially, you should have already set aside your budget for the hog roast machine and for other wedding items such as the invitations, decorations, and so on. So now the only budget you’ll have to work with is the food budget.

Generally, the first serving style that comes to mind for any budget-limited bride would be the buffet style. However, for someone who’s on a budget, the buffet serving style isn’t always recommended. That’s because people tend to go back for seconds, thinking that the buffet station will always be there. Also, running out of food in a buffet station gives a negative impression on the reception.

A good wedding catering option for a budgeted wedding would either be a seated meal serving style, or a finger food reception.

The seated meal serving style means that your guests simply wait at the table for their food to be served. This style is good for someone who’s on a budget because guests are more likely to eat what’s on their plate and not ask for more. They know that each person gets exactly the same amount of food as the other guests; hence they end up being satisfied with their meals.

Finger food reception on the other hand means that you don’t have formal meals. This service style means that you have several waiters moving around and offering your guests finger foods. This is the type of reception that’s most pocket-friendly because it doesn’t ask too much from the food budget. This type of food reception is perfect if you hold the wedding on the afternoon when people are more likely to have a snack than to eat a full meal.

So there you have it. If you’re facing the challenge of a budget-limited wedding catering, hire a hog roast machine and just remember the three Cs: Count, Coordinate, and Cash. These three Cs are sure to help make your hog roast wedding catering a breeze put together.
