Family Style

A versatile option—an experience that brings family and friends closer. Similar to a sit-down dinner, a family style reception has guests assigned to specific dinner tables and servers bring the food to the table. Large portions of the dinner offerings are placed on each table on serving platters for guests to pass and fill their own plates. Whether your guests have known each other for years or have met moments before, passing plates creates a way to start the flow of comfortable conversation.

 

Buffet

A buffet features food stations set up on long tables with servers stationed behind the buffet table serving each dish with the option to be self served. A buffet-style reception is usually considered the most casual style of meal service. Fewer servers are needed with a buffet reception, which means you may save some money on your catering-staff charges (though you still need staffers to tend to the buffet, and waiters to provide water service to the tables, if applicable). Buffets make it easier and more cost effective to provide guests with a variety of choices, which is helpful since many people have so many types of allergies and dietary restrictions. 

 

Plated

A plated, sit-down dinner is considered the most traditional and formal option as each guest is individually served a plated meal. Typically, guests are served three courses: salads, entrées, and dessert. Your guests RSVP between desired entrées, which they select beforehand; another option is to serve each guest two proteins, such as meat and fish, on one plate (sometimes called a "dual" plate). Unquestionably, plated presentation gives your guests a feeling of elegance. If a formal event is your vision, plated service might be a great fit for you.
