    Buffet. I find there is less wasted food on a plate when they aren't given something they don't like. If we were going more formal i'd consider it though

    Definitely Buffet style, sweet heart table depending if you want your own table or you don't mind sharing the head table

    Most likely plated. I don’t think we have an option with buffet style. I also don’t like the look of buffet style.

    Buffet! Easier logistics and you don’t need to figure out what meal everyone is eating. We have 3 mains to choose from, salad and assorted sides.

    Buffet! We didn't feel the price difference was worth it to get plated.

    My fiancé wanted buffet, I wanted plated so we are compromising by doing family style.

    Plated for us. We wanted a buffet for the causality of it, but cost wise it makes more sense for plated.
