Wedding FAQ

Will you help plan my wedding?

Absolutely. We’ve been assisting our clients in planning one of a kind, memorable events for almost 30 years.

I’m getting married next year, how much will it cost for you to do my wedding?

There is no simple answer to this question. We treat each and every reception as a unique opportunity to personalize our services to your individual needs and desires.

To get started, please call or email us to set up an appointment to meet with one of our event coordinators. Whether you are just beginning to think about that big day, or have an idea of exactly what you want, our experienced team can help guide you through all the planning and details to make your special day perfect.

How do I know what style/size tent I need for my event?

Based on the type of event, number of guests, items going under the tent, and your site requirements, our event coordinators can recommend the right style (frame or pole) and size tent for your event. Please call to discuss with us.

When would tent installation occur?

Typically a tent is set up 1-2 days in advance of your event and is removed the day after, depending on the date. In busy seasons (May – June and September – October) we ask for flexibility in set up and removal timing.

How will I know that everything will fit well in the tent size recommended?

We have years of experience with wedding set-ups. However, we realize that visualizing the tables, dancefloor and other equipment may be difficult.  To help, we are happy to put together a to-scale CAD drawing of your wedding site that shows everything in place.

Are there ways to make a tent more wedding-like and formal?

Yes. From elegant tent liners and custom draping to crystal chandeliers, colorful lanterns and up-lighting, think of a tent as a blank canvas for your event.

Is it possible to create a custom menu?

Absolutely! The menus we have on our website are “idea-sparkers” to help guide you in setting up a well-rounded meal. We are happy to substitute, remove or add items to create the menu that will suit your taste buds and budget. Have a budget but not a menu in mind? Let our event coordinators develop a menu for you.

Can I make changes to a menu to accommodate my vegetarian or allergen–sensitive guests?

Yes! Our menus are completely customizable, and our kitchen staff and catering team members are trained in allergy awareness.

Do you provide children’s meals?

Children under the age of 10 are encouraged to enjoy the menu already being served, but are charged at half of the price.

Do you do tastings? Is there a charge for a tasting?

We are always happy to offer tastings to our catering clients. We ask that you submit a $100 deposit which will be applied to your order (or forfeited should you choose not to proceed) . [For a tasting where more than 2 people will attend, a per person charge may be applied.]

We will be happy to arrange a tasting with you, by appointment. You’ll have the opportunity to visit our kitchen and sample the prepared dishes you are considering.

Do you have a minimum sized wedding you will cater?

We typically require a guaranteed party size of 20 or more guests for any catering delivery. For events requiring service personnel to be on site during the event, the minimum number of guests is 30, and an additional service fee may be added.

How many waitstaff will be at my wedding?

The number of staff on-site at your celebration is determined by the size and scope of your wedding.

Can you provide tables, chairs, linen and other rental items?

Absolutely! Creedon and Co., Inc. is a full-service event provider. Our inventory includes small to large tents, tables in a variety of sizes and shapes, chairs from basic folding to gold Chiavari ballroom, linen, tableware (china, glassware, and flatware), dance floors, stages, portable HVAC and more.  

Can you help me choose linen fabrics and sizes?

Absolutely! We have an entire wall of linen samples at our facility where you can view available colors and feel the fabrics. To choose the correct size, see our sizing chart, or call to speak with our event coordinators.

Can I rent just linen or just chairs if my venue already provides catering?

Of course! We work with numerous local and regional wedding locations to coordinate the delivery of chairs, linen, chair covers and other rental items.

How many people can sit at a table?

Depending on the chair style you are using, we typically seat 8 people at a 5-foot round or 8-foot banquet, 10 at a 6-foot round, 6 at a 6-foot banquet, and 2-4 at a 4-foot banquet.

When do you need my final headcount and any last changes?

We ask that you provide your final guest count and any final menu adjustments 7 days prior to your event. Should your count increase after this time, please call and speak with our event coordinators .

If alcohol is being served, how is licensing and insurance handled?

Creedon and Co., Inc. is fully insured, including liquor liability, and holds a state-wide Caterers License for alcohol service issued by the Massachusetts Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission (ABCC). Depending on the location, additional city or town permits might be required, and will be obtained by Creedon and Co., Inc.

Can you also provide the wedding cake or other dessert options?

Yes. Our talented baker can create intricate wedding cakes, pastries and other sweets. Or consider a “make-your-own” sundae bar or other unexpected treat.

When is final payment expected?

For weddings (catering, tents and any equipment) must be paid in full 7 days prior to the event date.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, corporate and personal checks, money orders and cash.
