Providing the wedding crew with meals for the whole day is part of wedding ethics. Although, it’s not actually obligatory, a couple should also be generous and kind enough to give a little something for the crew, even though it’s part of their job, it wouldn’t hurt to share a little of your happiness to the people who’s working hard to make sure a couple can have a great wedding experience.
Always… Always provide flowing coffee. The crew wakes up early, arrives a few hours before everyone else does and leave the wedding when everyone else has. It’s no wonder they need all the energy boosts they can get their hands on. A single cup of coffee won’t do either, give them lots of coffee, you would be surprised how this bittersweet drink could do wonders for your crew.
Provide them a clean and peaceful place to rest and eat. The wedding crew is not made up of robots that just need to change their battery to be up and running the whole day. They are people who can get weary in the middle of the day, so giving them a space to breathe and have a quick rest would really help them a lot. Just make sure that the place is near the wedding premises in case something comes up.
Be specific with the crew meal, as much as possible stay away from fried chicken and rice meals that most fast food chains offers. One, the crew doesn’t deserve to be fed chicken the whole day and second, there’s no nutritional value to making them eat chicken alone. You need your crew to function and give their hundred percent and no fast food meal could provide that. As much as possible, give them a balanced meal with protein, fiber and carbohydrates. If you can, give them a little treat as well, they’ll be very grateful for your simple gestures.

Behind every successful wedding is a dedicated and talented crew. And in these people, though always working behind the limelight is worth taking care of because the truth is, the success of a wedding relies on the happiness of the crew.
Yes, you may have paid the crew and it’s their job to work hard for the wedding, but it wouldn’t hurt to get them excited about it. These creative people get inspiration from their surroundings, and so if you allow them to be at ease doing their work and making them feel good about it, you can squeeze out more of their creative juices. You’ll never know, they may do something special for your wedding, with no extra cost.
First of all, make sure to provide the crew with meals. It may seem like an additional expense, but as a friendly gesture for doing their best to give you the wedding of your dreams is worth a few extra bucks. But be considerate, providing them with chicken meals from breakfast to till dawn is plain undeserved. Explore other options like asking favor from a relative to prepare the meals on your behalf, if not too much, you should also serve them a balanced meal with enough nutrients to sustain them for the day.
Also, allow them to have a breather every now and then. You may see some of your crew taking a five-minute nap or having a smoke in the alley at the back of the reception hall but it doesn’t necessarily mean that they are slacking off. They may need to rest for a while, most especially on the less delicate parts of the program. Trust your coordinator and your crew that they are responsible enough to do their job, give them your trust because sticking your nose to every little detail wouldn’t just be rude it can also put a lot of stress on you more than anyone else.
