Detroit Wedding Reception Catering

Many wedding reception venues have a certain caterer that they always use, which makes your decision making much easier because you just don't have to think about a caterer at all! However, if you do have a choice in catering, you will want to consider some of the very best ones in the Detroit area. We've included some of our personal favorites on this page, some very traditional and others more exotic and unusual. Contact information is provided for each one.

Wedding Reception Catering

Remember, the choice of food is as much an expression of who you are as a couple as the choice of decor or theme. Choosing types of food that represent your culture, or your blended cultures if that's the case, can be a beautiful way to say "I love you" and to introduce your families to each other's respective traditions. Enjoy browsing through our favorites!

CONTINENTAL SERVICES of Sterling Heights is probably our favorite caterer out of all the Detroit-based companies. We love the fact that they can accommodate parties of any size, and that they offer such a wide array of food. The types of meals offered include Indian, French, Italian, American, Middle Eastern, Eastern European, Asian, Mediterranean, Continental, Latin American, Kosher, and Fusion. We simply can't recommend this caterer highly enough. Everything is top notch. Truly excellent service. You can find Continental Services at 35710 Mound Road in Sterling Heights, and you can reach them by telephone at (586) 268-3835.

EVENTS OF EXCELLENCE CATERING of Detroit is very true to their name! Every event that we've attended that has been catered by this company has been a smashing success! They also happen to be the exclusive caterer for Events of Excellence at the Marina, a riverfront banquet center that is a wonderful choice for your wedding reception. The only reason we didn't include that one on our list of wedding reception venues is that we haven't attended one there ourselves. But we have heard nothing but great things about it! The specialties of this great catering company are Asian, American, Continental, Eastern European, Italian, Vegetarian, and Desserts. You can find them at 1100 Freud in Detroit, and you can reach them by phone at (313) 822-7700.

VASSELS MAIN STREET CATERING of Canton is another one of our favorites. They specialize in Mediterranean, French, Italian, and American favorites. With more than twenty years of experience in the business, this is truly one of the very best companies that you can choose for your wedding reception. The prices are surprisingly affordable for this high level of quality, and the service is simply superb. We can't say enough about this company. Their reputation speaks for itself. You can find Vassels Main Street Catering at 44944 Ford Road in Canton, and they can be reached by phone at (734) 453-1400.

Questions to Ask Your Caterer

Be sure to ask your potential caterer how long they have been in business and how long they have served the Detroit area. You'll want to know how much of their business is done at weddings as opposed to other events. Be sure to ask about insurance. Ask how many servers there will be, and how much gratuity is expected. Ask if there is a cake-cutting fee or a bartending fee. Ask if there is a cleanup fee! Find out what the cancellation policy is, just in case. And be sure to ask about liability insurance, and whether or not they are licensed to serve alcohol. Never assume the answer to any of these questions. Always ask up front.
