What is the best part of planning a wedding? The wedding food tasting, of course! As part of the wedding planning process, clients often want to taste the food to make sure it’s to their liking. Many venues offer samples of their wedding reception menu prior to the special day. The bride and groom are encouraged to try as many options as possible. This allows the venue to showcase their food and gives the couple an opportunity to give their honest opinion about the selections. Andre’s Banquets and Catering is known for being incredibly accommodating and flexible when it comes to meeting the needs of their clients.
What to Expect from a Wedding Food Tasting with Your Caterer
The first thing the caterer will want to do is get a feel for your likes/dislikes. They will also need to know whether or not there are any food allergies. Most places will want you to narrow down your choices so they’re not preparing unwanted food. Andre’s is a St. Louis catering company that specializes in weddings. We will encourage clients to try as many dishes as possible. Not only to give them options but because everything is delicious! Andre’s has a knack for making the decision difficult, in a good way! They offer entrees including hand-carved top round roast beef with horseradish mousse, rosemary chicken in a chardonnay wine sauce, and tender turkey breast beautifully roasted with a poulette sauce. Sides include Andre’s famous pasta con broccoli, roasted red skin potatoes, and fresh green beans. They also offer food tastings for their BBQ and appetizer menus: there’s so much to choose from!
Scheduling a Food Tasting
Andre’s is also incredibly flexible with organizing food tastings and will always work around their clients’ schedules. Individual food tastings are offered to the bride and groom and their parents are often invited to partake in the selection. They also offer large, group tastings once per quarter. These food tastings are a much larger production (similar to wedding shows) and include many of their vendors. Complete Weddings and Events is one of the largest entertainment companies in St. Louis and is a go-to for wedding DJ’s, photography, and videography. Jim’s Formal Wear makes renting a tux easy, and Irene’s Flowers are the most budget-friendly florist in the area, without sacrificing quality. These group food tastings are a fun way to get to know our vendors and taste Andre’s food before committing.
Another great aspect of Andre’s food tasting is that there is no obligation to sign a contract before a tasting. If the bride and groom are unsure about choosing a venue before they taste the food, Andre’s is more than happy to set aside a time for the couple to not only try the food but view the venue as well. They also give you a chance to view our sashes, runners, centerpieces, and tablecloths so the bride and groom can get a feel for how the décor will pair with their food choices.
Andre’s has been in business for over 40 years and has perfected the wedding planning process. They are famous for being reliable, creative, and having delicious food. They pride themselves in making the process fun and easy and with their “one-stop-shop” Andre’s “takes the tangle out of tying the knot”.
