Weddings

Weddings at YOUR Location

Have your wedding in the warmth of your home or at the beach or at your “special place”, and let OUT BACK CATERING meet all your needs. We will make the setting perfect. When when your “special day” is over, our staff will do the clean up.

We can make the Non-Traditional wedding a party your guests will remember with food, service and decor of your special theme. We’ve done many Country-Western weddings, along with Luau-Beach parties, Mexican Fiestas and Hors d’oeuvres under the stars.

Below you’ll find a sample of our menus, but we have many more great ideas. Please call if you have any questions.

Best Wishes,

Doug Noland, President, OUT BACK CATERING.

P.S., Don’t forget the shower, bachelor(ett) party, rehearsal dinner or the after wedding Sunday brunch. The following menus are suggestions of types of foods and presentations that we can further develop for you. Each of these can be presented formally or informally. These prices are based on a minimum of 50 guests, with the addition of the charge for our staff at $20.00 per staff per hour. See below for an explanation of different staffing levels. We can also provide a bartender, flowers, rentals and entertainment.

STAFFING COST

Level of Formality
The more things you ask our staff do for your guests, the greater the number of staff that will be required. For example, the following needs impact the number of staff required: tray passed appetizers, dinner and dessert, wine, water, champagne and coffee served to your guest at their seats, service on china vs. disposables. All of these choices require more staff to implement and especially add more time to pre-set tables and when finished, to rinse and repack the rentals. Typically, for a formal party of 100 guests, 8 staff including a bartender for 7-9 hours, will run approximately $1100-1500.00.

Casual-Informal
Food that is served buffet style on disposable plates where guests help themselves to drinks requires less staff. Typically, for a casual party, 3 staff for 5-6 hours for 100 guests would be sufficient, and would run approximately $360-$480.00.

All staff recommendations are done with your needs in mind. Please call to discuss.
