    I don’t know if this is with all caterers but we were only able to pick one dish with a sit down dinner and we wanted options so we chose buffet

    We are having a sit-down, plated dinner at a restaurant venue. Since our wedding will only have about 60-80 guests, the restaurant venue we have chosen is in Ottawa, and it has the most perfect intimate, industrial (exposed brick walls) setting that we were looking for.

    It all depends on which venue we pick. It is between two venues, one offers a buffet and the other offers family style.

    Our food is the most expensive part of the wedding, we are doing a buffet but because we are doing it at a Golf Course they have rules about food and alcohol so we are also doing appies and a midnight lunch. The ceremony starts at 530pm with everything flowing from there...at least I hope for flowing!

    Thinking buffet for the cocktail hour as well as buffet dinner. Although we might end up doing a sit down plated meal for dinner. Still deciding on that.

    Hey Emilie!

    We are looking at having a menu of "comfort foods, with a fine dining twist" There will be slider, and crab cakes, small poutine portions, a mac and cheese cup, and another vegetarian option. These will be passed for the first portion of the evening.

    Later on when the party is a little further underway we will have a pasta bar, where guests can build their own snack.
