Formal, private tastings are so 2018…Group tastings are the new black! We’re jumping on the bandwagon with Bridal Open Houses (our unique spin on group tastings) and here’s why you should too.
1.You get to try it all!
By offering a group tasting, we’re able to showcase a much larger number of items, which gives you a wide variety of food to taste! Group tastings give you a great starting point and plenty to choose from, since selecting a few items for a private tasting can be tricky.
2. Be inclusive or exclusive – your choice!
If you want to bring family, your MOH, or half of your bridal party, it’s your call! You can make it whatever you want it to be -a fun bonding experience, a special day with your mom and future mother-in law, or a pre-wedding date for you and your soon-to-be spouse. If you prefer to keep decisions between the two of you, leave the gang behind. Eating alongside other couples at a group tasting is a great way to get an idea of what other people think of the food – without the burden of opinionated family members.
3. You get a preview of the real thing!
A group tasting will give insight into how a caterer handles large groups, and how well the food is prepared and kept fresh for an event. At Indy Fresh, we are intentional about creating menus by choosing and preparing food that caters well. Attending one of our open houses will allow you to experience that for yourself before your big day. Just like you would have your hair stylist do a ‘trial’ styling before the wedding, you get a ‘trial’ reception- in a sense.
4. Stress Less!
Group tastings provide a relaxed, pressure-free environment. Let’s face it – tasting each dish while someone watches and eagerly awaits your feedback can be a bit awkward! Plus, we know you’re busy. Trying to make it to yet another appointment on time is probably the last thing you need. That’s one of the reasons our group tastings are called Open Houses – so you can come and go as you please! Our catering team will be there, available to answer questions and even start a quote for you if you’d like. However, if you need to run – no problem! We’ll follow up later.
5. It’s fun!
At our Bridal Open Houses, we offer free wine and beer, delicious food, and great music. Sounds like a party if you ask us! If you’re a social butterfly, you can mingle with other couples – it’s always nice to make new friends who are in the same season of life as you! Haven’t had a date night in a while? It’s a perfect chance to be wined, dined, and treat each other to some quality time.
