Uuuuugh dude, that totally sucks – especially since I’m sure you’re paying a premium! I’ve honestly never had a plated meal at a wedding that was very good… hopefully your guests will have had the same experience as me, and won’t have super high expectations. 

If you’re giving your guests an option, maybe you could somehow let them know that the duck is what you REALLY recommend they order. :}

Re: the cake… also “uuuugh”. I wish I had something helpful to say. You have all my sympathy!!!

& anyway, congrats on getting married! :}

I’m not sure what to suggest about the food – other than mention your concerns and ask that they’re addressed.  Do you have any family that’s local and could retaste if they “tried again”? 

As far as cake in concerned..  If it were me, I would probably spring for a cake elsewhere.  Maybe you can get some kind of credit for not using their baker but I would just cough up the extra money because I wouldn’t want my cake to be bad.

Are you doing any other dessert or is it just cake?

Did you make them aware that you were unhappy and did they offer any explanation? That’s the first thing I’d do if you haven’t already, as most venues want to make their clients satisfied and know you can cost them business with terrible reviews.

Did YOU go by online reviews of the venue or word of mouth?  If they are unaware as of now, I would definitely let my concerns be known and see what they have to say. Same for the bakery…

@jrzvol:  I agree on the wedding cake.

Bad wedding cake is often what people remember as it finishes the night. Sorry OP that your options are so limiting. We too were limited especially with our cake and opted to pay the per person fee to bring in an outside cake. Yes it added several hundreds to our budget but we had the delicious and beautiful cake we wanted.

i definitely suggest being very vocal about all your concerns right away.

@amyj1276:  my friend had her wedding last summer. I know she said her venue’s cake was horrible so she negotiated for them to give her something else and she got her cake elsewhere. I know it doesnt solve your whole problem but, as a guest, I ALWAYS remember people’s cakes.
