    I personally like buffets better, then I can pick and choose what I want, or take a taste of everything!  It also feels more laid back, and you get to move around the room more.

    Hmmm, it’s really just personal preference. We’re doing plated (~200 guests) because it’s what we want and what we are used to (almost every wedding in my family has been plated).

    I have no problem with a buffet as long as you a) don’t run out of food and b) have a smooth buffet line.

    I personally prefer buffets. I just like the option of being able to pick and choose what goes on my plate.

    Is family style an option?  I kind of feel like it’s a compromise between a plated dinner and buffet.  You get all the choices of a buffet but don’t have to leave your table.

    I like buffet because I like having the options of a couple different things.

    We are doing stations for a couple reasons, one is to give guests a choice. Also, I think that having a buffet/stations get people up and moving and socializing a bit more. However, all weddings I have been to have been a plated meal and theyre lovely. I also think plated tends to be more formal.

    Buffet. The only time I like plated meals is if I am at a restaurant and can pick the sides, etc. which is not an option at a formal dinner.

    @Cheesy Potatoes:

     

     

    Buffet, for the simple fact that they can choose what they want. Might be a bit cheaper as well.

    I had a buffet at my wedding and people loved having options. buffet allows people to take more of one thing they like and less of something they dont like. Plus that way you dont have to be as exact with the numbers so incase one more person shows up theres still enough food for them

    I vote buffet but I may be biased because that’s what we’re doing. 🙂

    But as a guest, I think it’s nice to have options and choose how much I want of each item.

    @Cheesy Potatoes: I think plated dinners are considered more “formal”.  I’m happy with both. Although one wedding we went to was a bit out of the ordinary… We had to walk from the banquet room (at a hotel), down 3 hallways to the indoor pool (kids were jumping/swimming/screaming) to a roped off area where the buffet was.

    Needless today, I stock piled my plate so I wouldn’t have to return. Quite odd. Sorry to hijack your thread OP!

    What does the dinner plate include as sides?
