Here at Vogue Ballroom, we look forward to assisting in the planning of such a memorable occasion.

When we first met Slavica and George at our Melbourne wedding venue, we were overwhelmed with their love and appreciation for each other.

The Importance of having a Food Tasting before your Wedding Day

At Vogue Ballroom, we believe that food tastings are an essential part of the wedding planning process. The taste, presentation, and most of all – selecting foods that majority of  guests will eat are all vital. Our food tasting experience is like no other because we take a personal approach to coordinating the day.

We Make it Exclusive
If one thing is for sure, we know that we give first class service when it comes to our food tastings. How do we do this? We plan the day months in advance, to ensure everything runs smoothly for our couples. We don’t believe in inviting all of our couples who are due to wed on one night. Instead, we invite our couple’s individually, ensuring that we give them our undivided attention.

Our Food 
On the day of our food tasting, we serve the bride, groom and their guests the exact food, portions, and presentation that they […]
