@irishphoenix:  Yes. Our venue did two or three tastings each year as well, and Darling Husband and I attended the first one they offered after we signed our contract.

The hors d’oeuvres were both butlered (passed) and stationary, and the meal was a buffet.  Each couple could submit a short list of preferred items to be included in the tasting, but only three of the items would be guaranteed to be included.

It wasn’t ideal, and the venue charged $75 per couple for the experience. However, Darling Husband and I were able to make informed choices as a result of the tasting.

Our venue did a group tasting with 12 other couples.  We were all seated at our own tables and were served several options of hot and cold appetizers, 2 startches (rice, potatoe), 4 chicken entrees, 1 beef entree, salmon with 3 sauce choices, and 2 vegetable options.  We had a choice of 3 cake bakers and did those tasting separately.  We were not charged for any of our tastings.

@irishphoenix:  Yes ours had a group tasting event.  They had passed apps and then the dinner was a buffet – they had starter salads to taste and all of the entree choices.  They had the preferred cake vendor with samples (you had to make a separate appointment though to chose your flavors/design).  They also had a bunch of other preferred vendors there (photographers, bands, djs, tuxes, etc.) and had tables set up in different linen choices. It was fun!
