    Asking a catering company if they’ll provide wedding decorations and any other equipment I might need seems really smart. I’ve always thought that I would have to get things like tables, chairs, and linens from a rental company. Now I’ll ask for this, along with the different types of food a catering company serves. Thanks for the tips!
