    Buffet Dinner, it's much less expensive than a plated and served dinner and this will allow guests to go for seconds if they choose. Plus a plated dinner is much more of a formal serving style, a buffet fits in to the more easy laid back vibe.

    I could use some help with this one. We're having a Christmas Jazzy wedding. We've coordinated with our hall to have Christmas dinner with our guests. Here's the question should we plate the dinners or should we do a family style where the different items come out and they serve themselves off the center of the tables?

    We're planning on a cocktail type wedding, so it'll be more like hors d'oeuvres. Maybe a late night snack of some kind.

    We are doing plated, but there will be desserts and late night snacks that guests can help themselves to later on

    On this one we actually don't care, food is food regardless of how it comes.

    I love plated, but with our style of wedding it will be buffet, it's also a little easier on the budget

    Plated for sure. Sucks for seating charts but it is best that everyone gets their pick of food.

    Walk around appetizers but plated after that! Our venue is small so theres no where to put a buffet.

    Buffet. As wonderful as it is to be served, the price is significantly more.
