Things to Look for in a Wedding Catering Service
A mouthwatering meal and excellent service are critical elements of a successful wedding reception. To create the event of your dreams, look for a wedding catering service that pays attention to details and:
Is Available When You Want Them
The best caterer in Illinois is no good if they aren’t available on your wedding date. And then once you hire them, they should be available to answer any of your questions, no matter how trivial you might think they are.
Book Wooden Paddle at least a year in advance to lock in your special date, especially if you are getting married on the weekend. Once you do, we’ll be available to answer any of your questions, so you know what to expect.
Works within Your Budget
Look for an affordable caterer but not cheap by any measure — a service that offers high-quality food and detailed service at a fair price.
Wooden Paddle chooses only the freshest, in-season ingredients for its appetizers, pizzas, salads, and desserts. We will help you create a menu that works with your budget and that you can feel proud to serve your friends and family.
As you already know, planning a wedding is stressful enough. So, make sure you work with a catering service that you and your spouse-to-be get along with and communicate with easily.
Wooden Paddle is honored to cater your big day. Our friendly event coordinator will keep you up to date on our end and remain flexible enough to accommodate any last-minute changes you may have.
On your big day, our friendly staff of chefs, servers, bartenders, and in-house captains are super helpful, unpretentious, and so easy to talk to. From setup to breakdown, we’ll be fully present for you and your guests.
Has a Proven Track Record
Ensure the wedding catering service you select has a proven track-record catering reception events similar in size to yours.
Wooden Paddle has been catering Homer Glen-area receptions of all sizes since 2013. Our 5-star wedding reviews speak for themselves, or you can contact us for references; we’d be happy to share.
Is Transparent About Pricing
Avoid catering services that come with hidden fees and shady pricing.
Wooden Paddle is crystal clear about our costs and once you receive your quote, let us know if you have questions. It is easy to adjust, and we are always happy to find ways to make it work within your budget.
How Much Does Wedding Catering Service Cost Per Person?
Catering service prices are nearly always based on the size of your guest list, the menu choices you’ve selected, the level of service you desire, and the service method you’ve chosen.
There is no-one-size-fits-all pricing for our services because every wedding and menu is unique.
Our event coordinator will help you craft a reception plan that suits your taste and your budget.
To give you an idea of pricing, let’s look at three sample packages ranging from $34 to $79 depending on the offerings included:
- Package Number 1, starting at $34 per person, may include four signature pizzas for your guests to choose from, one appetizer, one salad, and one dessert.
- Package Number 2, starting at $46 per guest, could include four signature pizzas, two appetizers, one salad, one dessert, and place settings.
- Package Number 3, starting at $79 per person, might include four signature pizzas, two appetizers, one salad, one dessert, place settings, bar service, bar glassware, and linen tablecloths.
Setup fees, sales tax, gratuity, and staffing are not included in the above pricing. However, we can modify any package to suit your needs.
When you come into our Lemont kitchen for your tasting, our coordinator will work with you to adjust menu items, service level, bar packages, and more to service your guest count and budget.
Sample anything on our menu and let us know what you have in mind on your wedding day.
Wooden Paddle Is the Perfect Match for Your Homer Glen Event

Wooden Paddle brings its mobile wood-fired oven to create unforgettable pizza infusing the perfect balance of traditional and trendy into your special day.
Homer Glen is a mere 30 miles southwest of the Windy City and less than 10 miles from our home kitchen in Lemont. Because we’re so close, all of our travel costs are included in the setup fee!
Book Us for a Unique Wood-Fired Pizza Experience
When you hire Wooden Paddle, we’ll bring the kitchen right to you, along with our mobile pizza oven. We’ll tow our custom oven to your wedding venue and park it on any 12-by-8-foot dry, flat area that you choose.
You and your guests will enjoy watching our chefs hand-stretch dough, add fresh toppings, and fast-fire the pizzas. Your food is served piping hot seconds after it’s baked, resulting in textures, aromas, and flavors like no conventional oven can offer.
