Buffet or Sit Down Dinner?

When planning the wedding reception couples can have a hard time deciding between a formal sit down dinner where waiters serve the meal or a buffet-style dinner where guests can help themselves. Here are some factors to consider when making this decision.

Buffet-style dinner:

  • Guest can choose from a variety of food. They are not limited and can also choose their portion size.
  • Buffets are great for casual weddings.
  • Most of the time a buffet-style dinner is less expensive since you safe money on serving staff.
  • Keep the reception space in mind. Is there enough room for the buffet table and guests to walk around?

Sit down dinner:

  • Sit down dinners are a great option for traditional and more formal weddings.
  • Guests do not have to get up and wait in line. This is especially good for older guests or children.
  • You will pay for the exact number of portions that you need.
  • When you have a more intimate wedding with less guests a sit down dinner will work great.
