Generally speaking I love a good buffet, but at weddings I prefer plated.

Plated, buffets where people serve themselves can sometimes end up with the food running out, and if it’s a pretty traditional wedding it seems like plated would go better.

This should be a poll. Definitely buffet with clearly labelled dishes and allergens.

I think it depends on the cater I have had both be bad. Ask them or look up reviews see what they do better.  Is the buffet going to have chef stations. Does that venue typically serve buffets non wedding related that you could go eat at?
