We’re going to Scotland and doing it blind.  I trust my coordinator and at least by pictures the food looks spectacular.

We choose our 3 dinner entrees and are going in blind – no pictures or taste testings.

Going blind completely, relying heavily on internet reviews and conversations (email and such) with people in the area, when we can find people to chat with from there.  Crossing fingers, especially about our cake!  We had the hardest time finding a baker in the area that was reasonable and had good reviews and I am very picky about cake so here’s hoping for the best!

I will be making a special trip to go meet with caterer as well as other vendors (cake,photographer,venues etc).. Food is a very important decision for me! I couldn’t imagine picking a caterer without trying their food first..

Going blind, but have read stellar reviews about the weddings at our venue so not worried at all.

We are going to Cayman this may to check out the area and potential sites, will plan on eating at the establishment where our Destination Wedding dinner will be held as well as our Rehearsal Dinner… Give us a good enough idea of how the service/food is.  As for the actual selections on the day of, blind.

Somewhat blind. No tasting for our menu but I’ve attended a wedding where they catered. Different food but still yummy.

We’re doing ours in Asheville NC so it’ll be VERY easy to visit 🙂 Though we’re probably just going to survey the area and not really eat – I’ve got so many good reviews on the food that I’m not even worried

I’m going blind. I was given the option of two buffet’s, a beachside bbq or champagne menu. I choose the champagne menu which I have the details of but apart from that I’m not 100% sure of what the quality will be like. I will sit down with the co-ordinator only 2 days before the wedding to make decisions on the details

Well.. we’re not engaged yet, but we’ve been talking about getting married in St. Thomas.  We’ll be in St. Thomas in a couple of weeks as a part of a cruise, so we’re visiting a venue and eating at the restaurant that we’re considering while we’re there.  So it wasn’t really a “planned” trip for the sole purpose of tasting, but it’s kinda workin out for us.  :o)
