- Wedding: September 2011
I was a guest at a wedding 3 weeks ago, and stayed in the hotel where the wedding was held. It was a lovely wedding, with a gorgeous bride and a handsome groom, lots of wonderful people, and very romantic. I had a great time! But………… the food at the reception wasn’t very good. I know when someone else is buying your dinner, you can’t really complain too much, but the bride passed along her ballpark costs for the venue/bar/reception meal/cake and she was paying top dollar, especially for her area. So having dinner served lukewarm, dry, with a bit of a skin forming over the starch, and underdone-almost-raw veggies probably was not what she was paying for, given the price range.
I WOULD NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS COMPLAIN TO THE BRIDE. I want to be perfectly clear on that. The only feedback she is going to hear from me will be about how stunning she was, how handsome her groom, and what a fantastic time we had.
But the hotel just sent me an electronic comment card— looks like they send it to all guests— and I’m not sure if I should fill it out honestly, fill it out but only about the hotel room itself, or just not fill it out. My motivations for filling it out are, they are not going to know they didn’t serve nice food if no one tells them. Other guests noticed these things too, and if they’re screwing up weddings, they need to fix that before they screw up another bride’s dinner.
Bees… what say you?
