Everyone has heard the phrase “you’d forget your head if it was not attached to your body.” Hidden within that statement, is a feeling that some of us know all too well. Sometimes when planning a large event, it can start to feel like you are running around with your head cut off. There is so much pressure to ensure that everything goes according to plan for the bride’s big day or your big corporate event. Distinctive Catering is here to put your mind at ease. We can help fine tune your event and remind you about commonly missed details during the event planning process.


Allergies and Food Preferences: When individuals RSVP or purchase tickets to the event, use this as an opportunity to identify any allergies or particular food preferences. Attendees will be disappointed if they get to the event and realize they cannot eat any of the food.

Bar Service: A well-serviced bar can make all the difference for guests at the event. Distinctive Catering is committed to providing unparalleled products, set-up, and professional bar services for your event. Worried about getting licensed to sell alcohol at your event?

Day-of Breakdown: Attempting to keep the schedule of your wedding or corporate event can be challenging. Make an organized list of what is going to happen throughout the event to stay ahead of the curve and ensure nothing gets missed. Organization is key to seeing your event run smoothly.

Printed Master Sheet: This master sheet will have coveted information, such as contact information for all the vendors and exhibitors and Wi-Fi passwords. Keep your master sheet close at all times, and print an extra copy, just in case!

Name tags/badges: For corporate events, attendees love to have name tags in some form, to help with networking. These can be printed out beforehand and made into badges or you can use the classic “Hi My Name Is” name tags. Whichever you choose, guests greatly appreciate having a way to identify themselves.

Emergency Kit: When planning an important event, like a wedding or corporate event, it is commonplace to expect the best, but prepare for the worst. Problems can appear out of nowhere and can derail an event if you are not careful. Simply preparing a small emergency kit will allow you to keep your stress levels down, and positivity up. Here some essentials to this kit:

  • Scissors
  • Pens
  • Pencils
  • Tape
  • Notepad/loose paper
  • First aid kit
  • Clorox or Tide to Go pen
  • Ibuprofen

Every event planner forgets details from time to time. Whether this is your first time or your hundredth time, important items of the event can get missed. We are all human. Our desire is to show you what we have seen people forget, so that you may learn without making those same mistakes. From big wedding days to important corporate events, Distinctive Catering has your back. Now take a deep breath, relax, and enjoy your big day.
