Questions and Answers about our Catering Services in Calgary
What is the best way to contact you with questions or to place an order?
An Affair to Remember offers three ways of contacting us or ordering. By phone, by fax or you can order online. All methods are very easy and quite self explanatory. If any concerns are identified, the contact person who places the order will be contacted immediately.
How much notice do I need to give for a catering order?
We ask that all breakfast and hot lunch orders be placed by 10:00 AM the day prior to your catering requirements. All cold lunch orders must be placed by 4:30 PM the day prior to your catering requirements. Same day orders may be available if placed by 9:30 AM although some items may not be available.
What is the charge for delivery?
This is dependent on the location that the delivery is being made to. Charges range from $5 to $25.
What is your delivery policy?
We try to obtain a 30 minute window for each delivery. All delivery windows are met as best possible. Obviously with downtown deliveries there are traffic, weather and elevator concerns that play as factors with timing. If a window cannot be reasonably met we will make every effort to contact the client who is being affected to notify of new timing.
How are the items on your menu packaged, presented, served, etc.?
All cold orders are placed on recycled plastic trays that we try to internally recycle as well by picking up, sanitizing , and reusing. All hot orders are delivered in chafers (chafing dishes) which are picked up the following day and fully cleaned and sanitized.
Can I change my order once it has been placed?
Yes, If an increase is required we will do our best to accommodate, decreases are not permitted after 2:00 PM the day prior to your catering order.
What is your cancellation policy?
We can accept cancellations up until 12:00 PM on hot orders & 3:00 PM on cold orders the business day before your order date. Unfortunately same day cancellations are not accepted.

How much is a wedding?
Once a menu is chosen and the logistics of your reception are known we can certainly provide you with a quote for your reception.
Do you do tastings?
Generally not as we make all items from scratch. Arrangements can be made for a nominal fee although references for any type of event can be provided.
Is a gratuity automatically added to my order?
A standard industry service charge is applied to all events. This fee encompasses all event & menu consultations, event preparation & orchestration, all liabilities and vehicle maintenance. A 18% service charge is applied to the full invoice on all events.
If you feel that you would like to reward your server(s) for exceptional service we encourage you to do so. However, while it is greatly appreciated, a gratuity is certainly not mandatory. This may be paid directly to the server(s) or may be added to your invoice.
