In this blog post Grand Tradition staff gushes about our favorite parts of the menu tasting, what you can look forward to, and so much more!

“This event is by far one of the best perks of being a booked couple at Grand Tradition.  We hold nothing back in our goal to wine and dine you as we put on a show of how your very own wedding will go.  Consider this a dinner date on us!  Our Chef specially prepares some of our most popular, yet delicious menu items for our couples to enjoy.”

Stroll Through the Mediterranean Gardens

You can stroll through the Mediterranean gardens and experience your venue as the sun sets, mix and mingle with other couples at our two-tiered cocktail hour and stop by the bar to check out our colorful display of signature drinks for the selection of your weddings’ signature cocktails.

“During cocktail hour, guests get to try our upgraded hors d’oeuvres – my personal favorites are the Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail Shooters, Crispy Vegetable Spring Rolls with Sweet Chili sauce (yum), and the Chicken Empanadas with the Salsa Verde, which has the perfect hint of spice.  It’s all amazing!”

– Sales Coordinator, Lindsey Rea

Champagne and Hors D’oeuvres

At this event, you can look forward to trying the champagne for your toast along with enjoying a variety of renowned hors d’oeuvres.  Dinner Reception will be held inside Beverly Mansion where our fabulous staff will cater to your needs during dinner service.

“Couples have the opportunity to meet other couples getting married in the same season as them.  They can share ideas and talk about their personal wedding details.”

“I LOVE seeing couples run to the S’mores Bar and Chocolate Fountain.  Those two are a hit all night and the main topic of discussion.  I mean you can’t go wrong with double the amount of desserts!”

– Sales Coordinator, Elle Jackson


“I love the food, the people, the idea of the entire event bringing couples together for a common cause, it’s like an exclusive pre-wedding party at your wedding venue!”
