We have decided to do buffet for our reception. Curious as to what you are having if you are doing/did buffet as well? I was thinking Chicken Piccata, beef of sorts, baked rigatoni, roasted/steamed veggies, tossed salad.

    We're doing a buffet as well! Our venue offers a barbecue option, so we're going with that. It should be delicious and perfect for a lunch reception.

    We're doing a chicken & vegetarian dish as well as a beef carving station. Then mashed potatoes and veggies and salad.


    Yours sounds great and offers a variety!

    We had chicken parm, dill salmon, and prime rib as entrees. Then we had a vegetable medley and rice pilaf and salad as sides, a mashed potato bar, and rolls.

    We were originally going to do several different soups and salads and breads for our buffet meal, but there ended up being some liability issues with serving the soup, so we switched to lasagna (meat and vegan and gluten free options) and mac-n-cheese and salad and a green veggie. Plus cake!

    We're doing stations, so similar to a buffet. We're doing 4 stations, and are thinking chicken wings (we're from buffalo), pasta, salad, and a meat carving station.

    Buffett and I added a carving station that will give us a 3rd meat option.


    This will allow our guests to have a little bit of everything and not locked in on 1 type of entree.

    I love buffets because they give guests choices!


    We went with 4 passed appetizers and 1 station. Buffet was nontraditional southwestern: tacos, sliders, southwestern mac and cheese, rice, salad, chips, guac, salsa. Guests raved about the food!
