@carleymo:  WTF?

Never, never heard of this before. 

Lawyer bees?

Unless you had agreed with them in advance that either 1 – you were going to book them and the tasting was just a formality or 2 – that you were going to pay for the tasting if you didn’t book them, then that is totally unenforceable.

@carleymo:  I know that if we went with a tasting before signing with the caterer we would have to pay, the fee would be credited on signing.

Did you get a quote from the caterer?  It’s probably in there.

@carleymo: I haven’t dealt with anything like that, but that sounds legally unenforceable.

I’ve heard of tasting fees but they should have been up front about it. I don’t think they can charge you now.

@carleymo:  If it’s not mentioned in your quote or any other document/email  you received from them, you are under no obligation to pay anything.

I hope you haven’t paid them and DONT. If they didn’t disclose that then they can’t enforce it you owe them nothing.

Sounds like they’re trying to extort you. They wouldn’t see a bent penny from me, but they would see an honest review on The Knot and Wedding Wire!!!

do not pay that. do you have the quote on hand to reference? even if it mentions the fee, unless you signed it like a contract, you have no obligation.
