All you have to say on your invitations is “dinner [and dancing] to follow”.  Guests should know to expect a meal, but there is no need to specify that the meal will be served family style (or plated, or buffet).

My invite said “feast and merriment to follow.”  You don’t have to specify buffet, family, or plated.  We’re doing family too.

We had a family style dinner. But it was expected since it was a Chinese reception…

I’ve been to plated, buffet, and family style and they never mentioned it. Sometimes you can tell by the venue.  Ours was hosted at a restaurant.

I went to a lovely wedding and it didn’t cross my mind at all when the invitation didn’t give a dinner option. I think the invite mentioned dinner to follow or something along that line.
