Here are some important tips to remember when choosing your wedding catering in Livonia:


When you begin planning your wedding the first thing you need to do, after saying yes of course, is to figure out the budget. When you and your fiance set a budget, this will help you make all the decisions from the dress to the delicious meals much more easily, and you will less likely be heartbroken when you find something that is three times over your price point. Once you have a set amount, you know to contact businesses’ and services within your means. This is equally as important for your wedding catering. You want a budget set for all aspects of your wedding, down to the very last flower center piece. When you have a budget, you will be able to set up a meeting with our catering company and we will be able to discuss what fits and what doesn’t. We want to work with you to give you everything your heart desires for the day, without breaking the bank.

Ask Around

If you are not the first to get married in your group of your friends, you have plenty of resources by your side. Ask the ones close to you what they loved about the food at their wedding and what they didn’t. Additionally, find out who they used and if they would recommended them to others. Word of mouth and reputations are huge when it comes to being in the wedding industry. If something went wrong on your friends big day, we’re sure her whole office knows about it. Another option, if you are the lucky first of your lady friend group, is to ask your venue what they suggest or who they partner with. We are well known in Livonia and we love being apart of weddings in the area. Contact us if you have questions, we would love to let you how important your wedding day is to our business.

Multiple Proposals

If you don’t know this yet, we will let you know now, you want to shop around. Think of searching for things for your wedding like shopping for a vehicle; you hardly ever pick the first one, you want to know the competition out there, and you want to make sure you are making the right choice. Take this mantra and apply it to your entire wedding, seriously. When you look at catering companies for your wedding, because we do want you to look at your options, we want you to feel as confident in us as we feel about catering your wedding. When you go to these other catering companies, make sure you get full proposals of what they are willing to offer and charge. This is important because a lot of information is going to be thrown in your direction, so it is imperative to have a source you can refer back to later on when you aren’t feeling so overwhelmed. You want to be asking the right questions when you meet with different caterers such as:

Menu options

Service options

Additional services other than catering


In order to ask these specifics, have a rough estimate of how many people you think will attend. This is especially important if you are planning to do a plated dinner versus a buffet. The great perk of our wedding catering is we give you all the options. We offer buffet style as well as plated dinners, we also take care of linens and silverware which is another thing you won’t have to worry about.


Whenever you do anything involving human interaction, you want to pay attention to how they are responding to your conversation. Even though you may hear rave reviews about a catering company because their food was phenomenal, if their service is poor it ruins the whole experience. Poor client service can destroy a beautiful moment, and we won’t let that happen at Thomas’s Catering in Livonia. When we hire our staff we pay attention to their whole background, including their personality. Even though they may be in the background of your big day, they are still part of making the entire operation go round. If you ever have questions or concerns, we get back to you right away. We know how important it is to know the planning of your wedding is going smoothly, and that’s why we make things a breeze with our wedding catering.

Your wedding day should be a spectacular event that you remember for the rest of your life with the love your life. Thomas’s Catering wants to make your day special, and we know how to do that through our delectable food, impeccable service, and professional and courteous staff. We are here to help create your dream menu of your favorite foods for you and your guests to enjoy. We feel going above and beyond is the only way to ensure your wedding is pure perfection.
