1) Handle the leftover
There will be food leftover, if you employ caterer to do the catering, most likely they won’t allow you to take away the leftover. But if you prepare the food yourself, you may donate the food to charity nearby. Make sure the food are still fresh and not yet spoiled before donate out and first thing to do is to wrap them or put in clean containers and keep them in the fridge. For food that has already decayed, you must throw in a proper way.
2) Return tools
Return the plates, cutlery, glassware, serving dishes, tongs, trays, utensils, tablecloths, tables and chairs to the owners, if you borrow or rent them. Make sure they are cleaned and in correct quantity and good conditions.

During the wedding buffet event, you are busy to take care of many things, and you may not be able to greet some of the guests. As such, you can ring or message some of the guests to ask about their feedbacks about the event.
5) Praise or comment on caterer
If the catering service and food is good, you may praise the caterer, else if something needs to be improved, you may give ideas and comments to them.
6) Post the videos and photos on social media
