usually even at buffet weddings the bride and groom are served not go up in line with the guests. so you eat while folks are getting their food so as folks sit down you can mingle with tables – otherwise you wont ever eat.

Typically, the bride and groom go first, then the bridal party, then any other honored guests, then the rest. The bride and groom are served or they can serve themselves. We are going through ourselves. I am a very picky eater, so I don’t want anyone picking stuff that I may not like.

I agree with the PP

Bride & groom eat first then bridal party and parents

@stephanie63087: At the last wedding I was at where I sat at the bride and groom’s table, the servers brought around a selection of all of the foods from the buffet arranged on a large plate and asked what each of us wanted.  That way, we still got to pick what we wanted but didn’t have to get up to serve ourselves.

Yep – I think the venue will work with you on that. I like the idea of “being served” as the honored guests. That way, you’ll eat. Otherwise, you may not. But, depending upon the style of the venue and your personal style, you may want to change it up.
