We are having ours outside.  My caterer said as long as it is covered and someone is manning it the entire time it wont be a problem.  So that way if there are any unwanted bugs that appear someone working the table can make sure that the lids are all closed when no one is getting food etc. 

Have you asked your venue if people have done this there before?  They may have some good advice.

 

Beautiful site!!!

Mine will be outside as well. They also said its better that way since your venue won’t smell like food. And if the view is nice, your guests will appreciate it.

I think it should be fine, especially if they have severs. Just make sure you have a back-up plan for rain/weather.

I think it should be fine as long as its covered and the weather permits!

An outside buffet would actually be a great idea – especially if you set the mood with some plants and lighting.

There’s nothing wrong with having the buffet outside.

You have another option, perhaps, as well. At larger private dinner-dances held in large homes, it used to be quite common to have the dancing on the veranda. I can see that the music travelling across the water could be a problem if there are homes on the other side of the lake and the music is loud and late, but I would consider the option.

It is totally fine to have it outside. I have been to a ton of weddings where that was the case.
