    I’m a big fan of buffet. That’s what we’re doing.

    More options are always better imo. I have a friend who is lactose intolerant and let me tell you, she is always thrilled with more options. Think of others who might also have food issues…

    We’re doing buffet :o)

    I always thought I was a fan of sit down, but I’m doing a buffet!  More choices, more food for those who want it, etc.  It makes the logistics and planning so much easier 🙂

    @KristenGotMarried: Yes it does! I can’t imagine trying to plan a sit-down for all the guests we’re having. I’d rather shoot myself in the foot.

    Buffet is great if you have some picky eaters or those with dietary restrictions. Its also great if you have some who eat a lot and others who eat very little.

    We had an indian buffet at our wedding of 250 people. To counteract the inevitable line you get with a buffet and 200+ people we set up two exact buffets that people could access from either side.

    We also had an “action station” where we had the chef making fresh fajita’s for the guests. I sadly didn’t have any time to try any though!

    We liked how people we able to mingle with people from other tables while in line.

    I’m not a big fan of buffets because I have OCD issues.  If its formal, do a sit down dinner. 

    If you know you have veggies, ask the venue to create special plates for X amount of people.  Its not acceptable to not be able to create a couple of vegetarian plates.

    I’m never a fan of buffet.  Besides have some sanitation issues with it, I think it takes away from the formality of a wedding.  When I’m dressed up I don’t want to be walking around with a plate, waiting in line like i’m at a cafeteria and scooping food, (again, like at a cafeteria).  I’d rather be enjoying the conversation at my table and eating.

    I’m picky and lactose intolerant.  I LOVE buffets. 

    I’m going to a sit down dinner next week and they’re serving buns and butter, clam chowder, greens with mozzarella wedges, steak with cream sauce, creamy mashed potatoes and seasonal greens and cheesecake for dessert.  I had to call ahead to the venue and ask for changes that I wouldn’t necessarily have to make with a buffet meal.

    SIT DOWN! 

    I think it has a more formal feel.  I’m also not a fan of the sanitation issues nor making guests line up and then “beg” for food.  (Not a dig, just can’t think of a better word)  And although there are more selections at a buffet, I find that the quality of the food is better when it’s a plated sit down dinner.

    SIT DOWN! it’s just more classy. less hassle. and worry free.

    buffets are so tacky. i am an impatient person and don’t want to be waiting in line. and after the ceremony is done, everyone will be starving and wanting food! also there are those that take so much which makes the people behind them talk about how ridiculous amount of food they have.

    Buffet.  I like having more choices and being able to control my portions.  I also think that generally, buffet food is more likely to be hot. Although I do understand not wanting to walk around with a plate.  We’re doing buffet but having sit-down service for elderly guests and the bridal party.
