I’m not super picky about wedding food, personally. But another note: their free tasting might have just been awful. I went to an open house at my venue, and they served the cake they make in-house. It was kind of dry and just blah. However, in a previous tasting, it was amazing. The day of my wedding, it was even more amazing. 

If you really want to be sure, maybe you can set up another tasting with them just in case? They might’ve not spent as much time on such a large free event. Not a good business practice, but they still might (usually) make great food.

I agree with jo.lee, just ask for another tasting appointment. You really seem like you have your heart set on this venue so give them a second chance. Also, have you considered calling back the 2nd vendor on the list? It is the holidays so maybe they haven’t been able to return your calls back because of that reason. Good luck!

I agree with everyone else to try it again.  Its just like a restaurant one day you go and the food is delicious then you go back and its bad.  You can do a tasting with someone else and the food is great then the day of the wedding its nasty. 

My mom had her wedding in her back yard, thank goodness, and the caterer was suppose to be so great.  Well I don’t know what happened the day of my mother’s wedding cause that food was so nasty that we ended up going in the house and eating leftovers.  People were making sandwiches, eating spaghetti and meatballs in the can.  It was a small family affair so my mom wasn’t embarrassed.

I’m hearing good things about my caterer and also bad things.  I guess I’ll just have to wait and see the day of.

I dunno, good food is important, especially when it’s so expensive! I’d talk to them, voice your concerns (and be specific- chicken was dry, vegetables too raw). By the looks of your venue you are going for a high class event, and bad food would just make the whole thing look.. bad. You wouldn’t be happy if you paid good money for a meal in a restaurant and it was awful, you’d send it back.

straighten things out with the caterer, or change venue and caterer.
