So we had a previous vendor… and now our new vendor.
They wont let us try one of our forsure meals at the tasting.. which is prime rib.
I dunno i guess i see it as weird since i watch Platinum Brides and they get to try it all however… there rich and they are paying the money so maybe thats why haha.
Also the choice for childs menu is only 1 of the follwing of eaither chicken strips or Mac n chesse.
She said we could change the option if we want to … but i have no idea.
What do you think would work for 1-12 yr olds?
I was thinking mac n cheese would be great for younger kids however older kids it might be to lil and vise versa.
I dunno dont you think thats weird?

That is strange but apparently not too uncommon. I haven’t gone for my tasting yet but my girlfriend did and some some of the things that wanted wasn’t available for tasting because some things they don’t make all the time or only make for their catering/restaurant. I don’t think I would like that but I dont know, maybe you can try talking to them, even offer to pay for it. To me it’s pretty important to taste everything. At least a prime rib is pretty standard, I mean unless they just make it tough or put some kind of sauce/marinade, you really can’t go wrong.
As far as kids meals, I like the chicken strips and man n cheese. Have you thought about hamburgers? Can you make it kind of go along with what you’re serving, I’m sure they can kidify it.

I wish all of our weddings were like Platinum Brides!
We went for our tasting last week and we only got to pick one meal, one salad, and one soup. So I brought my parents along (extra $35 per person) so I could try four meals. Also the appetizers were $3 per kind and we weren’t able to sample anything from the sushi bar. I always thought you went there and go to taste every kind of food available.
For under 12, I would do chicken fingers. I don’t think you will find many kids who won’t eat chicken fingers.
Also, in regards to a vegetarian meal I don’t think you really need to offer one. If someone is a vegetarian they will usually note that on a reply card. Just IMO, I’ve been in a few to many weddings lately and I’ve seen this happen in each one. Usually the reception hall will accomodate all dietary needs.

ha I love watching all the wedding shows and I learned very early on that I have very expensive taste like a platinum bride without the platinum to do it with! Champagne taste on a beer budget. Pasta would be good, like spaghetti or fettucini. Honestly, next time you go out to eat, look and see what’s on their kid’s menus.

If you have to choose between chicken fingers and mac and cheese, I would go with chicken fingers.

@mrs.murraytobe- I’ve been addicted well before I got engaged. My big splurge was lighting. I was obsessed with the lighting they used in each show. Luckily I was able to find a great company that wasn’t to expensive.
Well I bet you can afford a taste of champagne with beer to fill the gaps! hehe We have to imporvise!
