    We went for our food tasting back in September and have been putting it off as we didn't like the desserts by didn t like any of the other options too. I have booked to go and talk to the hotel but was wondering can we ask for something off the menu options? As I'd really like a berry cheesecake and wondered if we are Able to ask them if they could do this? It's the last thing we need to do before we can send the invites out.

    Always worth asking, you don't know unless you ask. They may suggest you pay a little extra towards different menu choices though.

    I'm sure if you ask the question it may be something they would consider..... Cheesecake isn't an obscure request.....

    At the end of the day, if they want your custom for their venue, they should accommodate your needs. You cannot help it if you don't like what they are providing, they cannot please all, so if it's something they actually offer anyway it shouldn't be an issue for them.

    No harm in asking, we had a starter off a different menu package and it wasn't an issue :)

    Thanks ladies :) they have been amazing so far so I'm hoping they will be able to change it. We can choose from any of the menus but they didn't have a cheesecake I liked, I don't even think they had it as an option :/ oh option was treacle tart but he wasn't wowed by it and to,d them about one he had that had a orange treacle on and they mentioned about trying it. But I don't know if I want to take the risk on it tbh. I'm waiting to hear back from the planner so we can meet and sort it as it's driving me mad! They did ask us on the tasting our opinion on each meal but I didn't feel I could give feedback half way through eating x

    If they already make a cheesecake surely cant be too difficult to change the flavour

    If they are a good venue, they won't use the word no. When we got married, that's what our venue told us. They should do whatever is reasonably possible to make your day perfect.

    Ours didn't have a lemon tart on the menu, and I was *adamant* I wanted that as our wedding dessert because it was the first thing I made for my OH. We had our meeting about menu choices and I just said "Can you do lemon tart instead?" And she said "Sure. Is it okay with raspberries and Chantilly cream?" Win.

    Most of the time if you're not asking for something super complicated, especially if they already make something like it, they're bound to say yes to keep you happy. xx

    I didn't like most of the canapés on the menu so requested what I wanted and they did most of them for us.

    I also made special orders for mine and my dads meals at the wedding breakfast so we had a different meal to everyone else.

    Venues can be flexible as long as it's within budget. Just ask.

    We had to ask for quite a few different things as we had a number of guests with dietary requirements. The chef was brilliant about it. For the wedding breakfast we had one gluten intolerant adult, but as it happened our choices for main and dessert were gluten free anyway so they just made a gluten free version of the tartlet that we had for a starter. We also had one gluten intolerant child, and the starter for the children was tomato soup with bread roll, so that was easy, they just gave her a gluten free roll. However the only thing on the main course for children that was gluten free was jacket potato, which was unfair given that the rest of the children were having fish fingers and chips. They agreed to do a totally different option, I think she got chicken and chips or a plain cut of fish and chips. They had ice cream for pudding so they just made sure to provide gluten free ice cream (I didn't realise it wasn't always). Then we had two orange allergies in the children (never came across that before) and that just meant they needed an alternative drink. Finally we had an adult with a real problem with faddy eating, to the extent that it's really a phobia of trying anything new. She's getting better now, but at the time there was nothing on the adult menu for starter or main that she would eat. She had the same starter as the kids, but for the main we had to ask for chicken and chips for her, which the venue did. I think she had the same dessert, but with plain ice cream rather than the whisky ice cream that everyone else had. The evening wasn't so bad, we had more gluten intolerant adults but for any dish with gluten they kept an alternative dish in the kitchen and told us to tell the gluten intolerants to make themselves known to the staff. There was a severe paprika allergy, to the extent that there could be no paprika in the room, but by avoiding the spicy potato wedges that wasn't a problem.

    Gosh Elinor, you were so nice with your faddy eater.

    We have only made exceptions for genuine allergies/intolerances not for anyone being fussy. If they don't like it then tough because its our day. An allergy is different though and should be catered for. The main one we're having to deal with is lactose intolerance but the caterer said they could use a dairy free cheese for their starter and the option of sorbet instead of ice cream on our ice cream tricycle.

    Never heard of an orange allergy before... x

    Always worth asking I'd say. We're having a custom made menu for our wedding to fit with our theme and it is coming in slightly cheaper than the cheapest option they offered, for up to 100 day time guests every little helps!

    I had an orange allergy as a child. It isn't as bad now except if I have any after 7pm I cannot sleep that night.

    The picky eater was hubby's SIL, so as a family member we felt that we should cater, we couldn't leave her without. Her other option would have been to get something else for herself, but whether she brought food or left to get something it would have seemed rude. I saw someone bring their own food to a wedding reception once due to being picky, and I was really disappointed in her. It's not just her being difficult either, it is a genuine problem. She has improved now though.

    We had out meeting with the hotel last night and she was nothing but helpful :) oh kept rolling his eyes as I tweaked pretty much every meal except one main haha. But she didn't seem annoyed or anything. She's going to let me know beginning of next week what the chef has said about changing he desserts to off menu stuff. And we asked if we could have a hamper of some of evening buffet put aside in our room as I never eat at events as too busy talking to people. And she going to find out because of the health and safety of food being left out long ect. But they have been briillant and answered all my questions just waiting on final menu choices to come through then can finally start on my invites that I want out by end of month x

    Sounds like a good meeting. It's always nice when someone is willing to work with you. What are you having on the evening buffet? Surely there can't be that much that would cause a H+S concern!?

    I'm Not sure yet as they are in middle of making a new menu up for it but will be sandwiches ( which they could put few aside in cling film) and bits like chicken satay and finger foods x

    Yer I think that's the main reason but hopefully they just have some chips or something delivered as they said we can always order from menu late at night. Just want to finalise it so can actually make the invites haha x
