I am having a large cake tasting at a venue. I usually meet with one bride at a time. This time two wedding coordinators have arranged a large tasting for 7 different brides and their families at one time at a venue. There will be 15-17 people. I am not sure how to go about this. Have any of you done large tastings like this? Any tips are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

We hold consultation dates and have multiple private appointments one one date....though we do these via our business consultation room, not through a wedding co-ordinator. (Just curious....are they asking for cuts/% for any bookings from you?)

I would think it would be rather impersonal.


As a bride, I'd love to taste....but I'd feel it a bit difficult to ask questions in a large setting like that. I love the one-on-one. They really want to tell you all about their wedding plans and to see what you can come up with. That might be difficult in a setting with such a large group....unless perchance they arrive one after the other, then it might work.

I'm thinking they are all going to ask you for a private appointment to talk about their needs anyway...which is good because you've grabbed their interest, but bad because you'll just have to do the whole thing over again. icon_rolleyes.gif

I guess I'd just treat the day as if it were a tiny wedding show. I'd do a booth setting, have my portfolios there, business cards, dummy cakes, cake stands, samples. As much as I could have to occupy people (i.e. show them what I offer) while I'm off talking to one couple about their needs.
