    @Bjones107:  I almost always prefer buffets.

    I do not like sit down dinners.  I hate having to choose what I’m going to have for dinner two months ahead of time!

    Another plus of buffet is that people chat a LOT more when they are up getting their food, even if they’re waiting! I’ve been to both and I looooooove food so I love stuffing my face at buffets but plated dinners are fancier and nice as well.

    Same here. I tend to prefer buffets because I can choose what I want and the quantity. However lines are annoying if you have a larger reception. Sit down does give an air of more elegance. But if the food is just ehhhh, that elegance goes out the window.

    I prefer buffets because then I don’t have to worry about picky eaters, who wants what, kids picking the adult meals, and all that good stuff. And I don’t even mind waiting. 

    My favourite is family style though.

    Under about 125 people or so, I think a buffet is vastly superior. Much more than that and the lines get crazy. I generally prefer buffets so I can choose what I want to eat and how much. We are having one, but our total guest count doesn’t even hit 50 so it seemed like the natural option.

    It depends on the person. Personally, I have liked EVERY buffet AND plated dinner I’ve had at a wedding, so it always surprises me when people say wedding food is “bad.” I love it!

    I personally chose a buffet, because it has so many selections, so picky people will be able to find what they like to eat. Also, the menu sounded delicious!

    I’m not a fan of buffets in everyday life and I’m not a fan of them at weddings either. It takes too much time to get your food, things run out, and you have to hope you don’t trip in your heels, etc, etc. I just think plated is nicer.

    I prefer buffet. Thier food is usually warmer and comes with more option. meaning better selection for me. sit down food usually cold a bland.
