Bakery!

Hi guys! I'm a bit confused with the bakery aspect of planning. My venue comes with a cake, and they allow me to pick from 3 bakeries. When did you guys start contacting bakeries for tastings? I was reading that some bakeries require you to book the day you do a tasting or there's another consulting fee. I may be looking into this too soon, but i've had some spare time and wanted to try and get ahead. I know I would start looking soon if it wasn't included, but do you think its still too early since it is part of my package? Thanks!

    It's not too early for you to start contacting companies! We did our tasting & booked our baker 8 months before our wedding date (and contacted people about 9 months beforehand). Our baker isn't affiliated with our venue, and we only did one tasting so I'm not sure exactly how it'd work when they're through your venue. I would just ask the bakeries if there are any fees associated with not booking that day. Our baker didn't charge us for a tasting but other bakeries in the area do charge for a tasting so it's best to verify the information with the vendors themselves!

    Our venue did the same thing so I contacted each one to get an idea of their contract, fees, tasting process, etc. Normally the venue will give you a per person amount and then you pay the rest so make sure you know exactly what’s included before you contact this bakeries.

    We did a stealthy trial with ours. We ordered cupcakes from them without saying we were doing a wedding tasting. But ultimately they didnt want to deal with us until we had a final headcount.

    Thank you! I will definitely ask about their fees and tasting process! I didn't even think about a contract for them, I thought since the venue said its based on our per person amount that it was all they'd need to know besides design/flavor. I'll definitely see what other fees are involved with each of these bakeries.

    I appreciate everyone's responses Smiley smile
