One of the most critical elements of creating the perfect wedding is the food. It’s an integral part of your reception, and you want the best cuisine you can get!
But to make sure you have the right food picked out for your wedding, you need to taste it and not just the cake. From the hors d’oeuvres down to the desserts, it’s always best to sample the cuisine so you can choose the right dishes for your wedding.
But this is not something that you should wait at until the last minute. There are a few dos and don’ts that you should keep in mind to get the best result out of your tasting.
Wedding Tasting Dos
- Know Your Budget: The more choices you add to your menu, the higher the price will be. If you can afford it, that’s great! But if you’re working with a tight budget, you’ll need to limit your choices. So make sure you know exactly how much you can spend before picking out a menu.
- Pay Attention: Is the service on point? Was the food fresh and tasty? As the old saying goes, the devil is in the details. You want to check that the food has been made with the best ingredients and quality.
- Ask Questions: Maybe there’s something on one catering menu that’s not on the one you’re planning on using. Is it possible to switch? Well, you never know if you don’t ask! Remember, the reason you’re at the tasting is to learn what you can and cannot have. So, remember to ask!
- Ask Around: Always check the work. Read reviews about the restaurant and the experience other couples have had with the caterer. And when in doubt, you can ask for references from the restaurant!
