I think it’s fine. I guess they could fire the chef and get new staff between now and then, but if that happened and you were worried you could just go taste it again!

No way..the more you can check off your list early on the better! Plus it will give you time to work with whoever is doing your food and tweak the menu to your liking. The last thing you want to be doing in your final months is running around making BIG decisions and signing contracts!

good for you for being vigilant and organized.

Yes- too early. Not only could they change the chef or the menu selections by then, but they could also change where they source their food. I would do it within two months.

I think there are pros and cons.. I think being organized is the way to go, I have already done my tasting as well because I wanted to get it out of the way.  Unfortunately, like the PP said, if they get a new chef, then what?   Make sure you are allowed a second tasting later.  I found out I can’t get another one, and I was NOT impressed with the food I had.

if you’re gonna taste to see if you want the venue, go. if you already secured it, wait.

we did our tasting 18 months before our wedding and I don’t regret it. It was absolutely delicious and awesome and it’s one less thing I have to worry about. I never even thought that it would be too early. Just make sure you take good notes and good pictures and you’ll be fine

I think it depends who your caterer is. I just had my tasting for my September wedding, but my caterer is a large company who I know won’t be changing anything. So no I don’t think it’s too early.

It depends how much you care about food. My Fiance and I just did ours last weekend for our September wedding because it’s the only time we’ll both be in the state before the wedding. I suggested we just skip it, but the hotel coordinator said no let’s do it now. Our wedding is at a 5 star hotel so the food is good, and I honestly couldn’t care less about it so if the chef changes or they want to change something on the menu, that’s fine with me.

@mrg1005:  It’s never too early to do any wedding planning! The sooner you can get done, the better! You’ll have plenty of other tasks to complete.
