Deciding on the Format of the Event

The setting of your dinner event and the type of guests who will be attending are significant deciding factors on choosing plated versus buffet-style dinners. Generally speaking, the more casual the event, the more it makes sense to have a buffet-style dinner. On the other hand, a wedding is considered a formal event, so many of them do include buffet style dinner for the guests. However, guests who have jackets, ties, and evening gowns would be much better served with a more formal sit down dinner and table service. Another consideration is that the larger the event is the less practical a buffet dinner becomes especially when considering the space the lines of people will take up. Discussing these details with an experienced and professional catering company can open your eyes to various options and give guidance on how to best organize the dinner. 

Buffet Catering

Buffet-style dinners are ideal in situations where more than two entrée selections are being offered. This is helpful when the event planner is not quite sure of the dietary preferences of their guests. Another situation where a buffet may be more practical than a sit down dinner is the event is a standing reception. In this scenario, the food is usually not the main focus of the night and is presented more for tasting purposes. Whatever the occasion is, buffets are a great way to offer guests a variety of food they can choose from, they are more cost-effective than sit down dinners, and can also be a great way to decorate the center of the room. Buffets are especially popular at parties, pre-game functions and weddings.  

Plated Dinners

Plated dinners offer the convenience of better conversations among guests as well as having their dinners served for them at regular times. Plated dinners usually start with a salad, some bread, and then are followed by the main entrée. Dessert and coffee will typically follow. One great benefit of plated dinners is that there is no waiting in line like there is for buffets and risking spilling food or drinks on the way to the table. 

Dinner catering companies will usually provide the utensils, plates and cups. The catering service can also be organized as a food drop-off service or a full service with waiters attending the needs of your guests and providing a memorable night of good times and food.
