1) Select a caterer you can trust. I always say a bride will know when she has found the right caterer to entrust her once-in-a-lifetime event as she will feel a tremendous weight off her shoulders. The caterer should be creative and suggestive with new ideas but more importantly, listen to the bride's vision and dreams. Speak with wedding venues and other wedding professionals regarding the reputation of your caterer before signing the dotted line. Any caterer can provide good letters of reference from satisfied brides, but other wedding professionals such as photographers, florists, and musicians, experience caterers where "the rubber meets the road" and can often give the most honest feedback.
