If we could give one advice to anyone planning a wedding - ALWAYS do a food tasting !!

Food is the most important part of a wedding. Second only to the bride and groom, that is. 

In our experience, no one remembers who wore what or how much jewellery the bride wore or what flowers where used in a mandap or how long the ceremony was. If people remember anything then - its the food. Sometimes the food is remembered for decades to come. This is usually either with fond memories or with utter disgust.

Food doesn't need to be elaborate and exhaustive to be good. Simple food can work wonders. Your menu needs to reflect who you are. So if you don't like Dal Makhani then you do not need to have it on the menu just because it was served at every wedding you attended this season. 

The importance of food tasting cannot be stressed enough. Whether a 5 star hotel or a Maharaj from your home town - always taste the food before finalizing the menu. Work on the chef's strengths. If the chef hasn't made a particular dish then stay away from it. No one needs experiments at their wedding, especially with the food. 

Make sure to taste all your star dishes beforehand and have a detailed discussion with the chef regarding each dish. Only when you are satisfied should you be done. 

This rule applies to cakes as well. Do a cake tasting before hand and make sure you love it. And if you are going for an egg-less cake then a tasting is a must to make sure that the flavor is not compromised. 

Bottom line is that ALWAYS taste the food !! If you are happy then your guests will be happy. ;)
