In the near future, my fiancé and I will be going to the Engineers Club in order to taste the food we want to have at our wedding reception.
A lot of places only let you do this sort of tasting a few months in advance, but we asked to do it earlier rather than later since it is such a big decision. Dinner plates for weddings are so expensive, and we want to make sure the food is what we're hoping for before paying for a venue in full.
Testing food may seem like a fun and easy part of the planning, but I have a feeling it’s going to be difficult. There are lots of different packages with different appetizers, entrees and possible dessert trays to choose from. I think it would be easy if we were just choosing for ourselves, but we need to remember our decision affects all our guests.
