While buffet and plated are by far the most popular options for food service at weddings, Brett Fox with the Tahoe Wedding Collection suggests a third option that creates a friendly atmosphere, and is often more frugal: Family style dinner service. In this scenario, all the dining and food plates are on the tables, which not only looks lovely, but also serves a great purpose. Plus, there’s no need for large centerpieces. Family-style encourages guests at each table to mingle and eliminates the awkward buffet line.
Check with your caterer to see if family-style is an option for you.
