My caterer only allowed two people to attend the tasting.  Not sure if that is a universal rule though.

Hi there!  My caterer asked us to limit the tasting to 4 people, us and 2 others. Perhaps you should give them a call, explain the situation?  They might be fine with it.  If they seem hesitant to do a full tasting for all 6 of you, you could simply tell them to make enough for 4 people and then split it between the 6 of you.  My Fiance parents live in another state as well, so I totally understand that you want them to participate in this fun activity!  I’m sure they would really appreciate it.

As for too many opinions, I have a very opinionated mother… but I have actually found that when my Fiance parents are around she tends to bite her tongue a little bit more.  I thinks its because the his and my parents still don’t know each other well enough yet, so she doesn’t want to seem too "pushy". So maybe having everyone together will reduce the amount of opinions you actually hear.  Good Luck!

Is the food tasting and cake tasting at the same place ? Maybe you can invite one set of parents to food tasting and the  other set of parents to cake tasting. Another alternative is to invite only Moms, usually they care more about the food than Dads might.

Our venue includes tasting for 2 and any additional ppl is $25 pp.  Ridiculous, especially since our final bill will be well over $25K in the end.
