Your wedding day is one of the biggest days of your life. The wedding reception is where family and friends gather to celebrate the newlyweds. There will be champagne toasts and speeches, shared laughs, guests will dance their shoes off, and last but not least, they will eat! This would be where wedding catering services would come in.

What is it?

A wedding caterer provides food services for a wedding party. There are a variety of companies that can be hired independently, or the caterer may be part of a package from a venue.

How Much Does Wedding Catering Cost?

The cost of catering is a difficult one to give an average estimate for. The price can vary widely based on date, location, number of guests, style of service, and length of time. Once you have an idea of what it is you are looking for, you can check out some local companies to get an estimate.

Questions to Ask Wedding Catering Companies

You should nail down your budget first before searching for a catering service. This will make things a lot easier. Here are some questions to ask potential catering companies:

Are they available for the date needed?

Where do they offer service?

What styles do they offer?

Do they provide drink service? (Both non-alcoholic as well as alcohol)

How much does it cost and how much is the deposit?

When do you need to book?


You can ask your friends and family who they have used in the past as references from personal experience are always the best. Alternatively, we have compiled a list of some of the Calgary catering companies below. Contact them directly for pricing as costs vary depending on needs.

N E W O F F E R I N G: Food Fairytale Grazing Board We missed our larger grazing pieces so much that we designed a pretty, petite version of our pre-covid Grazing Boards for same household or cohort gatherings for up to 10. Our Food Fairytale Grazing Board is a wildly romantic, hand-styled cheese fantasy come true! We focused largely on local food crafters for this beauty and bring together over a dozen local businesses on one stunning, showstopper grazing piece! Full details and order info at the link in our bio.
