Questions to ask a Wedding Caterer?

The internet is crawling with actual wedding nightmares from real couples. Many of them involving Caterers. Now, bad things can happen because we are only human. That doesn't mean you can't help prevent a bad scenario.
Actual Wedding: Bride hired a reputable caterer approximately 8 months before her wedding. She paid in full. She ordered a "home cooked" style meal. The main course; fried and baked chicken on the bone. Day of the wedding, the planner couldn't get a hold of caterer. The ceremony is starting. Planner saw the caterer read their social media message but refused to respond. One hour before the reception, and still no word on dinner. Planner has to inform the parents of the couple of the situation. Without hesitation, they gave her money. The planner called a local restaurant. She orders the appropriate quantity for the entire wedding head count. The restaurant thought it was a joke and put her on hold. The manager answered and took the order. Food made it to the reception a little late, but there was chicken and the bride was happy.
This is one example of why you need to do your homework. The bride still had a beautiful wedding. She was also prepared with hiring an experienced planner. But, could you imagine yourself in that situation? dreadful.
To avoid this kind of a situation, you need to ask questions. I have here over 50 questions.
Feel free to print this page and take it to every interview. Be sure to highlight the ones that are requirements for your wedding.
And don't forget, I have plenty other questions for all your professional vendors. Including photographers.
P.S. ask the professional if they have been through a bad situation and go into detail about what happened. Then ask them how they handled it, and if you can have that bride’s information. (trip them up more, ask them to give you 2 situations and then ask how did they handle it.)
