Pros and Cons of Buffet Style Dinner at Your Wedding Reception

BLUE HERON BLOG

Hello Friends!

Our couples always ask which is better, a buffet dinner or a sit down dinner. You’ve probably been to several weddings in the last few years and you’ve loathed the line at the buffet, or have you? I happen to love standing in line because I get to know people that aren’t necessarily seated at my table or near me. Then again, I have friends who will absolutely not stand in a line, even if it means not eating. The classic sit down dinner reception has been known to have a stuffy feel to it. . .you’re stuck. . .you get what they serve you and exactly how much they serve you. . .you might be the last table served and you want to get up and roam around but you’re afraid you’ll miss your meal. Let’s list some pros and cons that will hopefully help you decide.

Five Pros of Buffet Style Dinner
1. Guests get a variety of foods and can choose to take more of something they love and less of something they don’t love and they can go up for seconds!!
2. Getting up to get your dinner gives guests a chance to move around the room and not feel stuck with the guests at their table (which may or may not be a good thing).
3. Buffet style dinner costs quite a bit less than sit-down style service due to less plate ware and service staff.
4. A buffet can be a beautiful center of the room. With gorgeous linens, floral arrangement, lighting and design, it can create quite a conversation, even among the shyest guests.
5. Food is always hot on a buffet. Have you been to sit down dinners where the service was slow so your dinner was less than hot when it arrived at your seat? This wouldn’t happen with Blue Heron, of course, but it does happen and the buffet style service assures hot foods at all times.

Five Cons of Buffet Style Dinner
1. The famous line. . .here we are again talking about the line. Some couples just don’t want a line at their reception. While the line can be avoided by dismissing tables one at a time and taking a few minutes in between each one, everyone has probably had a bad buffet line experience and that sticks with some guests forever.
2. It takes more room at the venue. If you’re having the maximum number of tables/guests at your wedding reception, you might not have space for a large buffet. It may be your best choice to have a sit down served dinner and not deal with putting the buffet on the dance floor and moving it after dinner.
3. Mom, Dad and Grandparents are often not fond of buffets. They want the classic sit down service because it evokes a feeling of expensive elegance that they want the guests to experience. The younger couples are happy standing next to the guests in the buffet line and creating a cocktail party flow, yet the older crowd doesn’t agree.
4. It’s pretty when it’s just starting. . .The fourth table to go through the line doesn’t get to experience the beauty of the food displays as they were for the first and second tables. They do get messy and even though we do continually clean and replenish on our buffets, there are those occasional spills that just might splatter on the guest across the buffet table.
5. Going up for seconds when the toast is happening. There are those guests who, even though there is an emotional, heartstring pulling toast being delivered by dad or best friend, they will get up and go back for seconds (and thirds) and almost always will accidentally drop the tongs and get the entire room to look back at the buffet.
Well, these are just a few of the fun things to consider when discussing what type of service you’ll have at your wedding. Of course, your caterer will gently guide you and give you additional great ideas too!
