What's your serving style? Will you have a plated dinner service, or a buffet?

    Buffet all the way!

    P.s. I think it’s so cool that the pictures you included in this post are from Asheville and Buffalo. We are honeymooning in Asheville and my FH is from Buffalo. 😄😄💕

    Buffet, if I can somehow find it in my budget to do a plated dinner I will be though.

    Buffet! H and I both prefer buffet to plated (for different reasons haha). Plated is very uncommon in our area. I've never been a wedding with a plated meal.

    So, it’s buffet, but you get two different protein choices, sides, drinks, ect.

    We were originally going to do buffet/stations, but we decided to fo plated instead. It will just be too many people for buffet and lines will get long

    Plated. I’ve never been a big fan of buffets at weddings. I did however attend a family style dinner at a wedding and that was nice but my FH and I prefer plated.

    I always envisioned a buffet because I am a fan of variety but my fiance HATES food waste and buffets. Buffets are definitely guilty of food waste. So we opted for a plated dinner. however ours is a ten course family style

    Buffet! Everyone can pick what they want and we don't have to worry about what meal goes to what seat and collecting meal choices before hand!
