    I think acrylic plates would be fine.  We are having a buffet style meal also and our caterer is getting heavy duty platic plates.  As far as caterers, I would go with whoever has the better food, along with the best deal.  Sounds like #2.  Here is a picture of the plates we are using.  To me they don’t even look like plastic plates!

    #2 has the best food, smallest delivery fee, most experience with the venue, a reasonable price, AND they clean up.  The only draw back is acrylic plates?  Book ’em.

    I vote plastic! I ordered “premium plastic” plates from Smarty had a party and I do not regret! They look like real china and are really pretty. Buffet style weddings can get away with any type of plate honestly. No worries!

    #2 sounds the best.  Acrylic plates are fine with me.

    The food of #1 just sounds way too boring for me.  #3 would be my second choice.

    @purplelace:  Do you know where your caterer gets those plates?

    I have been to many weddings and have honestly never noticed the kind of plates that were used. If you have a strong opinion use those other wise don’t worry about it.
