im not sure what your venue offers, but my venue only offered a chicken, a filet and a salmon. There were some variations of these but pretty much that was the menu and that was all we tasted at our tasting. we did not get to try the cocktail hour food, the hordourves, or any of the like. I wouldn’t worry about it though. I would try to find reviews on past brides who have had their wedding at your venue and go with that. I think everything will be fine…whatever sounds good to you will most likely taste good as well. good luck!

Believe it or not, I booked a caterer and never tasted the food.  We were trying to work out a tasting, but b/c she doesn’t have her own kitchen (she’s one of those businesses who rent a kitchen and share it with others, so they can’t really let you come on down to try anything), it was going to have to be at an event, and she had to find one where 1) the food would be similar and 2) they wouldn’t mind us coming and snooping around the back.  Well, the only time this would work — we were on a trip!

We felt very very very nervous, but we stuck with it. My hubs was able to try some of her work at an event he went to, and she came so highly recommended by people I trust that I was willing to go ahead.

Do you have word-of-mouth recommendations you can trust?  What kind of venue is it — is it a hotel or somewhere like that where you could try eating in one of their establishments?  If all else fails, go snoop around and loiter near someone else’s event and see how it looks!  (I’m half kidding on that one…)
