When planning any event, a great way to approach things is to start with an idea of what you want the end result to be, and plan backwards. Partial catering is a great way to save money, but it's also important to remember that those savings are going to be balanced out with extra work on your side.
While most caterers are open to the idea of providing only partial service, many also offer set partial catering options. When researching caterers, make sure to find out if your needs line up with what the catering company will provide.
Partial catering service can include just about anything that you and your caterer agree on. From dropping off a spit for a pig roast to having a single server circulate with appetizers, the options are nearly endless.
