    Bad food trumps great venue. Wait it out as long as your heart isn't tied to a specific date. : (7 votes)

    I voted to wait, because you have 1 year until the wedding, so unless almost all of the days are booked its better to wait and know about the food. Unless they have a very small deposit that you would be willing to throw away (if the food is terrible) for peace of mind in the mean time.

    If it is a popular venue, book it now! Otherwise, definitely, wait!

    Book as soon as you know it’s for you. No need to lose out on the date you want! We booked our venue 17 months before the wedding to secure the date. Popular places go quickly!!!

    Why don’t you contact the tour lady and let her know that food is a deciding factor for you, and request a tasting with the new chef? That way, she will know you mean business and perhaps make an arrangement for you right away. You could even tell her a date and use the time it takes for a contract to be prepared/signed/returned to work in a tasting before you sign. That way, you have a little wiggle room and if it is good food you’re set, and if it isn’t, you don’t have to sign the contract after all.

    Otherwise, I would go by the reputation of this place. How long have they been in business? Do you think they’d risk an okay chef or are they top notch in the past and want to continue that reputation?
