Planning Your Wedding
In the days leading up to your big day, you have enough to worry about. You need a wedding catering service you can count on, one that is flexible and listens to your needs. Wooden Paddle offers experienced, dedicated, and professional catering consultants that will ensure your wedding reception goes off without a hitch.
Our coordinator will work with you each step of the way to create an unrivaled reception meal experience. No planning obstacle is too great. If you alter your plans along the way — your venue changes or your guest list grows — we will quickly adapt to the new situation to make it happen.
Before you hire us, though, you’ll want to know more about the most critical catering component — the food! This is where the tasting comes in.
Food and Drink Tasting
When you swing by our Lemont location for your scheduled tasting, you’ll have the opportunity to try everything on our menu. You can get a sampling of the food, the drinks, and the experience that awaits your guests. By “sampling,” we don’t mean just one or two items, though. We want you to try everything on the menu, so make sure you bring your appetite!
The tasting also helps you get an idea of which items from our extensive menu you want to include in your wedding package. From appetizers to dessert and everything in between— you’ll get to try it all.
Selecting Your Food Menu
Our food menu is the perfect blend of casual and elegant, striking a balance between traditional and trendsetting. It will make your celebration one that your friends and family will remember for years to come.
You’ll select from a wide range of mouthwatering appetizers, salads, pizzas, and desserts. Create a custom package suited to your individual tastes. Moreover, you can select gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan options to please each and every person on your guest list.
Selecting Your Drink Menu
Wooden Paddle offers an assortment of optional bar packages that you can add to your food menu choices. Whether you prefer beer and wine or a more extensive array that includes spirits and handcrafted cocktails, we can help you create a drink menu customized just for you.
Each bar package includes the set-up of our mobile bar, sodas, fresh-squeezed juices, coffee, tea, infused water, disposable drinkware, and all the garnishes, mixers, and ice needed to make your desired drinks. Your reception attendees will definitely not go thirsty, between our professional, attentive bartenders and the self-service hydration station.
Service on the Day of Your Wedding
Once you choose Wooden Paddle as your caterers, we get right to work preparing to ensure everything runs smoothly. We will coordinate with your venue ahead of time so that there are no issues or unwelcome surprises when we arrive to set up on your wedding day.
Pizza is at the heart of our menu, and our not-so-secret weapon is a beautiful 800-plus-degree, custom-built, ash wood-fueled oven that we set up onsite. You and your guests can interact with the chefs as they hand-stretch your dough, load it with fresh toppings, and fast fire each delicious creation right before your eyes.
How we deliver each course of your meal will depend on what type of service you prefer:
- Buffet-style — Guests make their selections from a centralized serving station and bring the food back to their table.
- Cocktail-style — Guests mingle while our servers circulate with trays.
- Family-style — Guests remain seated while servers bring out the food table by table.
Regardless of the service you choose, you can rest assured that our entire staff will go the extra mile to ensure that everyone has a memorable experience. If you want your reception to be an event that leaves everyone talking about the fantastic food and joyful atmosphere, then Wood Paddle is the Bolingbrook wedding caterer for you.
