Do you do more than one tasting for the same wedding? - Page 2

post #16 of 19
I have a girl right now who is consulting me regarding cupcakes for her wedding in July. She asked whether she should send her mom to me now (she too is out of state but mom is here) and then she'd meet with me later or to just come all together in May. I said we'll do May so we can do the taste testing all at once. I wouldn't want to do it twice.

For me, I wouldn't want to wait until May for a July wedding because I'll be booked for July by then, which is one reason to do it twice. I'd tell them that they shouldn't wait until that close to the date to book, so if her mom wanted to pick up samples and book the date then I could meet with her later to figure out the specifics. Which would then book the date, and the cost of samples is really the least of your worries when you're dealing with weddings. You don't have to sit down and do two design consults with people, which is what I worry more about in terms of resources, so to speak.

I had a bride that lived in Florida that was doing a destination wedding in my area and her aunt and uncle who lived close by came for the cake tasting and then I sent cake by them as they were going to see the couple for them to taste but I got the booking just from the opinion of the aunt and uncle before the bride and groom tasted the cake!!!!

I know this is late but maybe it will help others. I have had this happen many times and I always advise to place a deposit..especially for summer since I book up quickly. If a deposit is recieved, then I don't mind doing this for out of town brides. If no deposit, then I charge for the 2nd tasting.
