I think its weird. Makes peopel feel bad for not eating the green beans b/c they dont like green beans…

plus family style gives a more relaxed atmosphere.

How formal are you trying to be? I’d prefer family style for a typical dinner party. If you’re not having it catered, I think it may be a bit weird to serve people yourself.

You could set up your serving dishes in the kitchen and people can plate their own meal. I got to my in laws almost every sunday for dinner and she still doesn’t let us serve ourselves. There are some days that I’m still hungry because the portion she serves is too small. She makes “girl” and “boy” portion sizes which would make sense but some days I can eat as much as DH can.
