Q: How far in advance do I need to reserve a location for my wedding reception?
A: The further in advance you plan, the more options you will have available to you. Typically, you will need to reserve a location at least 12 months in advance of your desired date. The most popular months are May, June, September, and October for most Midwestern climates. If you are not flexible regarding your month or date you may need to start planning 18 months in advance. Ceruti’s still has available dates this year at our various locations. Please call for more information.
Q: Are there any months or dates that I can receive a discount?
A: Yes and No. February is the slowest month for banquet facilities and caterers therefore demand is weak. Fridays and Sundays are becoming more popular but still have great availability. Some rental items and facilities are negotiable when demand is weak, however other hard costs such as food are less negotiable.
Q: Do I need to put down a deposit?
A: Yes. Deposit policies will vary from each caterer and location. A deposit benefits both parties involved. Ceruti’s requires a deposit for guaranteed room reservation and catering reservation. For specific deposit details go to our Policies and Procedures section.
Q: Does Ceruti’s provide decorating services?
A: Yes. We provide full service wedding decorating from centerpieces, fresh floral design, bouquets, ceremony decorating, and much more… Please schedule an appointment so that we may help you create the wedding of your dreams.
Q: Does Ceruti’s cater at any location?
A: Yes. Provided that the location does not have an exclusive caterer. Ceruti’s limits the number of weddings we cater on a given day so that we can give you the best in service and quality. Call now to reserve our services for your wedding date.
Q: What will it cost for my wedding reception?
A: Obviously, the cost of a wedding reception will vary from the location, number of guests, menu selection, beverage selection, and decorating packages. Typically a wedding reception will range from $20 - $60 per guest. After meeting with one of our professional wedding consultants and discussing your needs we will prepare an itemized written
proposal for your review.
Q: Can Ceruti’s supply and take care of china, linens, and skirting?
A: Ceruti’s Catering includes china, silverware, linen napkins, linen tablecloths, and linen skirting in most of our wedding packages. We can also offer a full range of colors and fabrics including chair covers.

A: Yes. Ceruti’s Catering is licensed by the State of Indiana to serve alcoholic beverages both at our facilities and other off-premise locations. We have a wide variety of beer, wine, and mixed drinks. For specific details view our Bar Packages. Unfortunately, we cannot provide alcoholic beverages at locations that have an alcoholic beverage license.
