I voted buffet because it sounds better and more appealing to me.

Either one of the buffets, but my favorite is the italian one. Grilled chicken (#1) makes me want to go to bed it’s so boring.

Italian as it has a vegetarian option.

No matter the choices, I would always choose the plated dinner over a buffet. Buffets remind me of the dining hall in college.

Normally I’m a plated dinner gal (I just hate carrying food around and lines) but I voted for the Italian buffet (not a fan of the no choice with the plated). I liked the choice of tri tip on the Chuck Wagon buffet, but the Italian just had better food overall (IMHO). Major bonus that its the most cost effective!

I personally don’t like buffets, but we are going that route for our wedding. It ended up being a lot cheaper with a lot more food and is definitely not going to be like a chinese food restaurant buffet! I chose the chuck wagon since it has the most options and is the same price as the plated dinner.

– Lots more food than plated.
– Suited for more people/most likely to make everyone happy.
We are catering in fazoli’s ourselves.

@AmyFarrahFowler: this is why I was so confused because the buffet gives you more options but the plated is less hassle.

Personally, I am not a fan of buffets at weddings. I don’t like having to balance a plate while dressed up, walking through a ballroom trying to get back to my seat. I would go plated, hands down.

I like buffets the best …then people can take what they want to eat and there is less waste. Also italian food is my fav!!

The buffet may be more delicious but I always like plated dinners at weddings, they feel so much classier.

wow 20-25 dollars pp is an amazing deal! Can I ask where it is held? If it’s in NY I am soooo going to harass you for more info lol.
I voted for plated because I just find it a lot more classy then buffet style.
