Ask any guest what they look forward to the most at a wedding and the most common answer you will get is the food. Knowing this, couples who are planning their dream wedding should never underestimate the importance of good food and catering. Ever since ancient times, people have celebrated Joyous events by enjoying food with people they love. This is true now just as much it was back then, wedding catering can make a good wedding unforgettable or make a great one a complete disappointment.
With this knowledge picking the right menu becomes vital to your wedding and most couples don’t want their guests to leave with a sour taste in their mouths. Since most weddings have buffet-style catering people might be tempted to choose it. This might seem like the right choice but knowing is half the battle and making decisions without having knowledge can lead to disaster. So we are here to give you the pros and cons of wedding buffets so you can have a perfect wedding.
Pros And Cons Of a Buffet:
By definition, a buffet is a meal where guests serve themselves from a variety of dishes set out on a table or sideboard. It is one of the most popular catering styles in events which have a large number of people.
Pros Of a Buffet
A buffet menu’s biggest advantage is the options it offers when it comes to proteins, vegetables, and salads, along with bread, sides, and condiments. The variety of a buffet deals with a lot of problems in one beautiful stroke. It takes care of picky eaters, heavy eaters, people who are allergic to certain foods, and people who want a little bit of everything.
Buffets are also a very cheap and cost-effective menu which can save you a lot of money. Buffets also have the guest get up and get food by themselves, this helps you by having to hire less staff to serve food. Plus since there is so much food and the guests can have as much as they want, so no one misses out on their favorite dish.
Cons Of a Buffet
Even though a buffet sounds great it is one of the least elegant menu styles. So if you want a sophisticated evening with a formal atmosphere, plated dinners are much better suited for you. Since buffets are self-served you have no control over portion sizes so you will always have to overcompensate in food.
During a buffet, people have to walk back and forth from their table to get food this increases the chances of food being dropped, drinks being spilled, plates being broken and people falling over and injuring themselves. These problems often occur when the venue does not have enough space so if your venue is small then it’s best to avoid the buffet style.
Buffets have their pros and cons but so do other menu styles. It all depends on what you want for your special day. If you are looking for professional catering at your wedding visit The Supper Club For Vancouver’s premium dining experience.
