As I’ve mentioned elsewhere, I’m a long-distance bride planning my wedding, and I cannot come in for cake or catering tastings. My mother and fiance did the cake tasting, and I told them I’d be happy with anything but vanilla. They chose vanilla, claiming it “truely” was the best flavor she had. OKKKK, trying to be easy going and calm since I can’t do any better.
Now the catering tasting will be coming up soon. Anyone else experiencing this kind of situation? I’m just nervous! I’m sure what they choose will be fine, and I probably couldn’t care less on the day of anyhow.

Oh my goodness…that must be so hard. The food is the most important decision for me! Hopefully you have similar taste buds! Also, you should totally have them take pics and/or talk to you on the phone during the tasting!

I’m a huge foodie, so it actually is really stressful for me, but my family (my mother especially) is being so wonderful in planning/paying for this wedding for me so I am doing everything I can to not be a Bridezilla. Plus, our family traditions make my wedding the only wedding my momma will ever plan, so I really want her to have all the joy. She’s loving it.
I have menus and I have looked them over and I chose what I could, but who knows how it might taste! I was able to have some photos of the cake while the tasting was going on.
Ahh! Scary! 🙂

My mom went to my food tasting! I also planned my wedding long distance, like you (although I did get to go to my own cake tasting, which I did on a special trip). We picked the final menu, but she gave her opinions on everything that she had tried. Interestingly, one thing that she insisted on was a mashed potato bar (with potatoes seved in martini glasses)—I couldn’t have cared less about it but she insisted we had to have it—and it was the hit of the party!
Do you like the same sorts of foods your mom likes? And is her/your taste similar to an “average” taste? I knew my mom loves good food, so I was sure she would pick yummy things. It also helped that the caterer was very well-known for having good food in general. When you have a reputable caterer, it’s harder to go wrong. 🙂
