What is a Wedding Tasting?

After a couple books their wedding at the Hawthorne Hotel, about three months before their big event, we invite them to a Wedding Tasting.

What is that exactly? It is a kind of preliminary event, held quarterly in our Ballroom, that enables the couple to taste a multitude of items before they have to make up their minds about what we will serve them and their guests.

As you can see in the photos below, we serve everything from appetizers to wedding cake, and every course in between. We set the Ballroom with a number of different table styles, chair styles, flower arrangements, all of the attendant details are in place for them to see exactly what is possible.

Several of our suppliers work with us to make this event successful, including Nina Vickers who plays the harp, Montillio's Cakes in providing the cakes for us all to taste, and Peter Barter Florist for providing the lovely centerpieces.

I have heard from a number of families that have children who have already been married and had their receptions elsewhere, that they are totally impressed with our approach, as they have not experienced it anywhere else.

I have also learned from some couples that they were pleased to be able to actually sit down and enjoy the food served at their weddings, because they knew they would be too nervous, or too busy, to actually enjoy it on the day of their reception.

In a future post I'll tell you about the Chocolate Fountain. Stay tuned.
