    I think this depends greatly on your guests. If they like more adventurous, “foodie”-type food, then they would love the plated option. I always like to order the offbeat, unique items on menus, so I think the plated option sounds really interesting. I can always go to the local diner for regular waffles and toast.

    However, if your guests are more into simple, “normal” food, then I would go with the buffet brunch. For example, my ILs like to order the same three things everywhere they go, so a fancy brunch plate would not appeal to them at all.

    Is it possible to have a buffet with both fancy and “regular” options?

    I prefer plated meals, but with a brunch, I don’t think you can go wrong with either way!

    I think when you feed a lot of people it’s best to go with the option that provides recognizable options for everyone. I personally would like your plated dinner, but I think the buffet would be better for your guest. I would do a buffet, but pick a couple of great options to put in there to kick up a notch if you can.

    I like recognizable comfort foods for brunch.  I woudn’t be opposed to the fancier stuff since I would understand that I’m at a wedding… but I love tha basics.

    I picked the buffet because I think people would appreciate having comforting/familiar brunch foods. I wouldn’t be opposed to the fancier food, but I love traditional brunch (:

    I’m not a fan of buffets (hate the waiting in line) and they give Darling Husband the heebie-jeebies. (He wigs out at the thought of everyone breathing on and touching his food.) I always go fora plated meal.

    I’m not adventerous at breakfast, I think a buffet of normal food is the best option.

    For brunch, I’d do plated, because eggs are really hard to keep fresh, hot and moist on a buffet line, and there are few things nastier than cold rubbery scrambled eggs.

    I did a plated meal at my wedding but I don’t mind buffets, for a brunch I stick with the basic brunch foods in the buffet it seems more appealing to everyone. Maybe you can add a few fancy chocies as an enchancement to the basic package?

    Out of those…plated meals for sure!! I make eggs, basic pancakes/waffles, biscuits/gravy, hasbrowns (all the breakfast basics) every weekend so for a wedding I would like something more special!!  I assume you would give them a choice so they could pick what they like?  Of you could always do a buffet with the fancier options
