Has anyone been to, had, or heard of a buffet style dinner where the caterer didn’t have enough food for all the guests? This wave of panic washed over me and I can just see table 12 getting up to go to the buffet and it looking like a picked over cafeteria!

@NikkiKillpretty: please make sure this doesn’t happen at your wedding.
This happened at a party I attended and being the last table called up we missed out on the roast potatoes and chicken and everything else looked like leftovers and really unappealing that most of us waited for dessert and only ate the bread rolls. This should never happen!

I’ve been to at least 3 weddings with buffet style and only 1 was on the small size. I’ve heard of some people paying for a couple extra plates ahead just incase.

@NikkiKillpretty: I would talk to your caterer to see what they do to ensure that something like that doesn’t happen. A good caterer should be able to tell you how they handle a buffet so they don’t run out of food for guests.

I have been to a wedding where they ran out of food and it was awful.
A few people left to get food and came back- they were eating KFC and Mcdonalds out of paper bags at the reception!
