We Do This Every Day!™

It’s your day for a lifetime of memories. Weddings are magical, elegant and enjoyable to plan with Wendy Krispin on your team. Our talented team challenge themselves with each event to make it as individual as each of their clients. While we can help you select the right décor and flowers, food is the common dominator that links all our events. We are talented and quick when it comes to developing a menu that’s just right for your occasion. A specialty drink custom designed for your event and delicious hors d’oeuvres passed upon arrival can creatively get the party rolling. Leave all the details to us and you won’t be disappointed. We create full-sensory events.

Wedding Planner FAQs

Absolutely. This is your wedding and we want to make it a happy, successful event. We are glad to work with your wedding planner and we may already have a relationship with them. If not, we are glad to become acquainted.
We can cater your wedding reception at any number of locations around the Metroplex – from private homes to churches or synagogues to historical centers to your lake house. We can go where you want, as long as the facility allows outside caterers.
Yes. With Wendy’s guidance, we will pick a seasoned service professional to provide that calm attention to detail so you can relax and enjoy your big day.

EVENT SPACE

Certainly. Floor plans are part of planning, preparing and serving beautiful, delicious food for you and your guests. We like to set menu choices and then meet on site with the bride or the planner.

We have been catering weddings for many years. At some of these we design the room from the ground up. We can recommend the type of tent you may want for an outdoor wedding. We can recommend or order stages, lighting, furniture and flowers.

Yes, we can do that. We can help you select cloth colors and make the rental arrangements. Or, you can make those arrangements and have them delivered to your site and we will use what you order.

We can provide all china, flatware, glassware and even lounge furniture.

ALCOHOL

Yes, we have a full service staff; all of our bartenders have TABC certification.

You may, depending on location. Some venues require a license, which we have. At homes and other unlicensed facilities you can always provide your own.

We can arrange and plan the alcohol and help get it to the location.

We offer many services geared toward alcohol , including cash bars.

We can also design special drinks just for your occasion.

Yes. We just need copies of the servers’ certificates.
Cash bars may be provided by WKC or, if you are a licensed caterer, you would post the permit and be able to comply with our caterers’ agreement.

FOOD

Of course. We can prepare a few proposals to help you get started. We will also send along additional menus for your consideration. We can make adjustments to one of those proposals, or start fresh.

It does help if you have some idea of your budget so we can design a menu that is delicious and serves your needs.

There are so many different styles of weddings and we offer so many different types of menus, it would be best to determine your style. For instance, do you want to have a formal, traditional seated dinner, or an informal bar-b-que, or something in between? Do you want to be flashy and cutting edge? Knowing your style helps us make menu recommendations. It also helps to consider your budget and serving location.

Prices vary with the types of food you select, so there is a lot of flexibility to work with your budget and your likes and dislikes.

No, but we can make arrangements to have the wedding cake or groom’s cake made in any number of flavors. We also specialize in alternatives to layer cakes, like chocolate bars, banana pudding bars and other unique ideas.

We can order it, have it delivered and cut it for you. We do so at no additional charge. Or, you may make your own arrangements. Just let us know about your selection.

Yes, of course. We have three locations to do so – 129 Leslie for up to 300 guests; Royal Sixty, our restaurant in the Design District seating up to 90; or 528 S. Hall Street, our newest party place. We can also suggest other venues, provide food, entertainment and even transportation.
Sure. Once you have narrowed your menu down, we can schedule a tasting at no cost to you. You can sample the items to see if they look and taste the way you’ve dreamed about. You may also bring guests to discuss the choices served. At that time we will take some time to discuss other reception details with you.
Sure. Often the bride and groom have no time to eat during the reception. We love to prepare a gourmet meal culled from your menu and place it in your vehicle to go.
Sure. We will bring all items you ship to us to the reception. (We do like to get notice that they are coming.) We also will pull leftover gifts, liquor, décor items, vases, etc. back to our location. We will arrange to deliver to your location of choice at a future date.
We strive to give you proposals that works for you, as far as menu selection and budget constraints.

We strive to make our proposals as realistic and as accurate as possible. For instance, if our experience tells us that you will need 1 Party Lead, 2 Chefs and 5 servers, that is how we bid it. We also consider the load-in time and equally as important, load-out and clean-up.

We think about all the items we need to make your event a success.
