why would you want to spend that kind of money on a place where the food is bad?? Not worth it, and since it was an open house it was probably done better then it would be on your wedding day, move on 12000 for just a venue is so SILLLY especially when the food sucks!!!

If the venue won’t let you bring in your own caterer and reduce the rental, I’d find another venue. Food that sucks in June is still going to suck in November, and your guests won’t know it’s any cheaper; they’ll just know it sucks.

Did you already book/sign a contract? Get in touch with the venue and tell them that you were disappointed and want to cancel. See if they’ll offer a private tasting with your specific menu, or allow you to bring in a caterer of your choice. Be sure to tell Ben all of the reasons why you chose their venue in the first place, and it they’re willing to work wih you to ensure quality then great! If not, try to get as much of your deposit back as possible and move on.

I agree, find a new venue. Just because you change the date, doesnt mean the food will get any better :/

As a guest, i remember the food much more than the venue. I’d change it while you still have time. It really sucks that you cen’t taste what you are actually interested in. That sounds pretty weird to me!

I know this may sound nuts but tell them the food is bad. Tell them you love the venue, and were going to book it but could barely force yourself to eat the food. Don’t be rude, and approach it completely calmly. If they are worth anything as a caterer they will give you a private tasting. If the food is bad you will just have to move on to a new venue, and believe me good food is so worth it in the end Smile

If the food is not good and the price is too high then just find another one. I don’t mean to be rude or anything but you are just at the beginning stages and if you are ready to give up now then you might now be able to handle the other aspects of planning. It’s not the end of the world you have time to find a place you like better with better food.

Well, we had the same reaction to our venue.  When we did the tasting it was just ok.  We felt like food snobs since we were from NYC and our venue was in New Hampshire.  The couple next to us rave about how good the food was.  Anyway, on the day of the wedding the food was delicious.  Not the most awesome food but pretty good.  

We think it’s cuz teh venue is use to doing large groups so it was only subpar when they were doing one or two for tasting.  The same happened the other way fro my friend’s wedding.  Her food was AMAZING for the tasting but since it was at a resaurant they weren’t use to doing big groups and the food was subpar on the day of.

Just a thought.
