    Option 2 hands down. I’m usually pretty hungry by cocktail hour and would like a little something to nibble on. And I don’t need a huge plate of food in front of me at dinner, so I would always go for option 2 in this case!

    I chose option 2 bc I think if you have smaller plates, but more option people think they are getting more. If you have just like 1 big plate, they wont think anything of it.

    I would much rather have some extra options! Just bc the plats are smaller they wont even notice!

    As a guest, after getting ready, traveling to the ceremony and watching the ceremony, I’m usually very ready to eat. I would much prefer to be able to nibble on hor d’oeuvres during cocktail hour.

    Option 2 – I’m not a buffet fan and no food during cocktail hour would surprise/annoy me

    I prefer seated dinners at weddings.  I think weddings are formal occasions and I hate trying to balance plates and not spill on myself from buffets. 

    ETA: no food at the cocktail hour would really annoy me, especially if there is alcohol!

    Option 2. You dont want huge plates of food to be wasted by people who tend not eat heavy meals at night.

    I would go with smaller meal and some appts for cocktail hour: that is your best bet.

    I love buffets and usually prefer them, but in this situation I think I’m prefer more options over more volume of food. In fact one of the reasons I typically dislike plated meals is I don’t like to waste food, so smaller with more selections would really help with that.

    i always vote plated dinner. Plus It is nice to be able to nibble on apps while mingling.  Small plates- no problem, aren’t most people watching their weight these days anyways. 🙂

    More food spread out over more time, especially if alcohol is involved.

    Hors d’hoeurves are a must, IMO, especially if there is alcohol. Empty tummies get drunky fast!

    Option 2, because you need to have food during cocktail hour when people will be drinking.
