Trumps Catering has over 20 years of experience in helping brides and grooms plan their special day. From menus to beverages to floor plans, we will make recommendations so that your day is even more perfect than you expected.

We have dozens of resources to help you find just the right florist,
entertainment, or photographer. Check out our 'Links' page for a head start.


Here's where to start:

1. Read our Tips page to help you decide on your date.
2. Once you have decided on a date, you'll need to decide on a place for the reception. Take a look at our Rooms here at the Historic Georgian in downtown Athens to see if any of our spaces will accomodate your event. Otherwise, we are happy to cater your reception at any of the many local venues.
3. Work on your guest list so that you can get an idea of the number of guests you are going to have at the wedding ceremony and reception. It might help you to know that our average return on invitations for receptions is between 60-70%.
4. Of course you are going to want to start thinking about types of menus and what kinds of beverages you'd like to serve your guests. Here's a link to our Menu Page directory to start developing your ideas.
5. We are happy to help you with your decorations, entertainment, floorplan, time table and finish all the details for your special day.
6. Last, but certainly not least, we have a wonderful pastry chef that we can work with to pick out the perfect wedding cake that is just your style. Take a peek at our Wedding Cake Album to get started.
