    Buffet style. We want people to pick and chose what they. And if they want a second serving they can help themselves.

    We are having a plated dinner. However we are only having 45 people. If we were having a huge wedding, due to cost we would have probably done buffet.

    I prefer plated but our favorite venue does buffet, but they are pretty good about getting people through the line so it will work out

    Plated. Buffets are great in theory but I don't like carrying my food around at a wedding unless it's more casual.

    Plated dinner. Everything about my wedding I want as elegant and as glamorous as possible. I feel like people get too....casual when theres a buffet table.

    Buffet, but it will be staffed so it isn’t a free for all 😂

    Buffet because it’s more cost effective for us and I don’t have to worry about getting everyone’s meal choices.
