To help us prepare a quote for your wedding reception or other events, these are the types of questions we'll ask...
1. What is your reception venue and is it reserved?
If you haven’t chosen a location yet, we may be able to offer you some suggestions based on the style of wedding you’re considering. Here are some venues we’ve worked with.
2. How many guests are you expecting?
An estimate is fine for your quote. This does not need to be a firm number until 2 weeks before your wedding. Please let us know if you are expecting any children under 10 years.
3. What type of menu are you considering?
We have numerous menus popular with wedding parties - dinner buffet, pig roasts, and picnics. You can find those here. We can make small changes to the menus to accommodate special requests such as dietary needs, vegetarian selections or specific food items. Or possibly you want to take care of desserts for your reception. We can accommodate. If you don’t see something you’d like, just ask.
4. What style of service are you considering?
We offer buffet lines, plated dinners, hand passed appetizers, party platters, dessert tables, etc. Some wedding parties will start the evening with passed appetizers and transition dinner to a buffet. Our event planners can make suggestions based on your vision. There are other services we can provide as well such as cake cutting.
5. Do you require servers?
Experienced servers are available and will make your event seamless. There is an hourly charge per server of $21.50.
6. Will you need any rental items?
Biebel’s provides rental items such as tents, tables, chairs, linens, tabletop items, champagne fountains, and much more. Our event planners can help determine how many of what items you’ll need. More information here.
7. Will you need a tent?
If you plan on reserving a tent, we will ask about other tables and vendors who will be in your tent? For instance, a band or a d.j. Do you want a separate dance floor? Head and Gift Tables? Tent heater? Factors like this will determine the optimal tent size.
Questions you may have for us?
8. Do you offer food tastings?
We do offer tastings. There is an a la carte charge for these items. They must be ordered 1 week in advance. You can pick up at Biebel’s and take with you – hot or cold. Or you can enjoy your tasting right on location. This might be a good opportunity to meet with your event planner.
9. How do we finalize our date?
Upon saying yes to our services, a contract is signed along with a $200 non-refundable deposit to hold your wedding date.
10. Do you offer bartending services?
We have tables, bar tops, linens and glassware for your event from Biebel’s Rental Department. We recommend Gerczak’s Liquor & Beverage Catering for bartending services.
