Top Tips For Ordering Barbecue Catering For Your Wedding

4 minute read

When you’re planning a wedding in Dallas, Texas, there are some important priorities you need to consider. First, you’re going to need the perfect wedding venue. Next, you’re going to need the wedding dress of your dreams. And finally, you’ll need a list of the companies that offer the best barbecue catering in Dallas. 


You’ll also want to keep these top tips in mind! 

Be Aware of the Rules of the Venue

Some venues are very welcoming when it comes to outside food vendors, while others have a strict in-house policy. If a venue provides catering options, they may not allow outside vendors. This allows them to generate revenue by feeding your guests, as well as hosting them. 


If they do allow outside caterers, they may limit you to certain businesses that they have established partnerships with. If you have your heart set on a catering menu from a particular caterer in Dallas, make sure they will be allowed at the venue before you book it. 

Hire an Experienced Caterer

There are many companies that provide barbecue catering in Dallas. But just because a restaurant serves tasty barbecue, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they will be able to meet all of your needs. Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and you want it to go smoothly. Choosing an experienced caterer can help you to avoid any speed bumps along the way. At Sonny Bryan’s, we have decades of catering experience and have accommodated hundreds of events ranging from intimate gatherings to those with thousands of people.

Communicate Your Budget

The meal is often one of the most memorable parts of a wedding reception, and you don’t want your food to be remembered for the wrong reasons. Some of the biggest complaints about wedding food are that it takes too long to be served and that the portions sizes are too small. Having an established BBQ caterer in Dallas to plan the menu for that event can help you to dodge these problems. 


Barbecue is the perfect menu item to serve buffet style. Guests can customize their serving size to their liking, and the process is typically much more efficient than doing table service. A barbecue menu also tends to be more affordable than other catering options, so you can make sure there will be enough food to go around without breaking the bank.   

Consider the Menu

The most important thing that a caterer should provide is good food. Many companies have a wide variety of options for your event. We often order menu items we enjoy personally, but it’s important to remember that not everyone has our individual taste. While you should absolutely have your favorite dishes on your big day, be sure to ask your caterer what their most popular dishes are. You will want to make sure you always have a crowd-pleasing main dish and side. 


Planning a wedding can feel like an overwhelming task, even in the best of times. Trying to figure out wedding catering during the pandemic might feel downright impossible.
