    We didn’t have brunch, but we had a buffet with no assigned seating and it went really smoothly! I prefer buffet because you have options if you don’t like what you’re served. I’ve been to some weddings with plated meals and ended up going home hungry because I didn’t like it. Plated is a little more fancy-feeling, but I’m not really a fancy person. 😛

    For brunch, I like buffets and plated, but for any other meal, I say plated, hands down.

    Since plated is cheaper for you and also more elgant, go with plated.

    I always vote buffet. I like to try everything. I went to a wedding Saturday and I ordered the beef, plated, but I didn’t really like the sauce on it and wished I would have gone with the salmon. If it were buffet I could have gotten it! And yeah +1 on PP who mentioned posters talking of cold food at a buffet. What caterer are they using? I feel like they’re thinking of Golden Corral, not a wedding buffet………

    I prefer a plated meal, that way your not having to wait in line to get food and can talk with everyone at your table.  I feel that its a bit more relaxing from a guests perspective.

    I’m not a fan of the plated meals because they always show up to the table cold.  I chose option #3. 🙂

    Personally, I’d go with the plated meal 🙂
