The Fine Print

All the fine print and details you need to know!

  • Deposit Requirements
  • Menu Selections & Final Details
  • Guest Count Policy
  • Food & Beverage
  • Setup & Timing
  • Linens
  • Venue/Travel Fee
  • Outdoor/Tent Venue
  • Final Payment & Pricing

A $250.00 deposit along with the signed catering contract is required to book your date. The deposit is to guarantee your spot on the specified date and is non-refundable should the event be cancelled.

Details such as menu selections, timing, linens, etc. must be confirmed at least two weeks prior to the event. It is very important to set realistic serving times. If serving time is off from the scheduled serving time, additional fees may be added and we cannot guarantee the quality of the food.

Your final guaranteed guest count, not subject to reduction, is due at least 12 days prior to the event. If you need to increase your guest count after the deadline, we will make every effort to accommodate your request. The guest count cannot be reduced after this date. Food will be prepared, we will set up for and billing will be based on the final guaranteed guest count. For full-service china events, an exact number of guest tables and the number of guest seats (equal to final guest count) is required to guarantee an adequate amount of China is provided. We offer a 50% discount on the food pricing for children under 10 years and younger. Please confirm the number of children when you confirm your guaranteed guest count.

All food must be provided through Beechwood Catering with the exception of wedding cake/desserts. Parties may provide snack mix/nuts/mints for a time in between ceremony and dinner, but are not allowed to provide their own hors d’oeuvres. You are allowed to provide your own beverages. Please check with your venue as to what is allowable for alcohol service.

For Casual Service: Our staff will arrive approximately 1 hour prior to the meal serving time.

For all packages including China: Our staff will arrive approximately 2 hours prior to the guest arrival time to begin setup (setting place settings, buffet setup etc.). NOTE: We plan that guests will arrive up to one hour prior to dinner time. If this time will be longer for things like having the ceremony on-site, and our staff needs to be at the venue early to have things set up, additional fees may apply.

If you order linen tablecloths from us, the tablecloths can be picked up a couple of days in advance from the restaurant (380 Douglas Ave). This will allow you to put the cloths on and complete your decorating of the tables. At venues where we are not there until the end of the event, we will leave you linen bags and it will b your responsibility to package up the linens and return them to the restaurant by the Tuesday following the event.

It is the client’s responsibility to contract with the venue or your desired date. If a venue charges the caterer a surcharge, that surcharge, that surcharge will be passed on to you, the client.

We are able to travel throughout West Michigan; however, a fee will be added to your event for venues 30 miles away or more.

ALL tables, chairs, tents, catering tents or other rentals are the responsibility of the client. All rental agreements are to be made directly with the rental company by the client.

IMPORTANT: We will need a covered area to work from that is screened from the guests as we will need to scrape plates and things of that nature that are better off to the side. We also need tables to work off from in this area. The number of tables varies depending on service type and group size. We DO NOT bring our own tent or tables and it is required that you or the venue provide this. When planning your tent rental, keep in mind that the buffet(s) must also be under the tent area.

WATER: If the venue does not have servable drinking water for us to use, then we can bring water, but there will be an added cost to do this and then we also ask that you have bottled water available for after the meal service.

PROXIMITY: We must be able to have at least two vehicles parked right next to where we work from and not up or down any stairs as we have to cart all of the racks of dishes and things.

Once the final guest count is given, an invoice will be created. Final payment is due no later than 3 days prior to the event.
