it’s not rude to ask, because the worst thing they can do is tell you no. i would expect to pay for it though.

We had a second tasting, for a way more superficial reason.  The venue just asked us to come in on an afternoon, at 4pm to be specific, where they were having a wedding a short time later. It was probably easier for them at that time. They gave us one plate of each item. We offered to pay but they didn’t charge us.

Catering companies want to keep your business. They should do the 2nd tasting free, as you’ll be giving them business! Definitely ask, and make sure they don’t have a fee, but again, they should be doing anything to keep you happy.

Most caterers I talked to were happy to do a second tasting – for a fee.

We had a second tasting, only because the first tasting went so poorly (umm.. they had bacon in the vegetarian entree, then served it to a vegetarian who unknowingly ate it).

I was hoping to do two tastings. One to decide between certain things and then a second one to make sure everything went together. I don’t think it’s rude to ask.

You can but expect to pay for it.  I personally don’t see the point as different chefs come and go and the food may be different at the time of your wedding anyway.
