Meanwhile, Juan Carlo shared that Juan Carlo, The Caterer was established on November 11, 1995 by his dad, Engr. Alex Michael Del Rosario. Engr. Alex was trained by his aunt Mrs. Cecilia Del Rosario Pacumio. Juan Carlo shared that they are a family of caterers that’s why his dad still tried to venture in this business even he’s an engineer already.
Both entrepreneurs stated that the wedding industry is constantly changing. Over the past few years, brides are more involved in the planning. Now, it’s not — even the grooms are involved in the detailing of the wedding.
Couples wanted more personalized and one-of-a-kind wedding accessories from the invitations up to the souvenirs. It is the trend now, as said by Alexandra, that every accessory has the initials of the couples. That makes it more unique and more sentimental for the couples, she shared.
As for the food, couples wanted an array of options. Couples wanted different cuisines in their menu. Juan Carlo said that the trends as of now is that the foods are cooked in front of the guests. As for the arrangement of the venue, a more modern look is the trend this year.
Alexandra and Juan Carlo both assure that with their help, their clients can have the best and most memorable wedding for the couple and guests. And if couples have no idea on what kind of wedding will they be doing, they said that the clients could attend on bridal fairs to grasp some ideas.
