Wedding Planning Tip: Menu Tastings

Make sure to ask if a menu tasting is included in your contract with the caterer or if there is an additional cost for this. When serving dinner or having a buffet for 100 guests or more, it's essential to have a "tasting" with your caterer (although you may want to have one even if your wedding is smaller). The caterer schedules a tasting so that you can sample the foods that will be served at the reception from the hors-d'oeuvres, to main course, to the cake (if included in the package). At the tasting, you can make any applicable changes. Don't be afraid to speak up if there is something you don't like or something you want to change. This is your opportunity!!
