Passed, Plated or Buffet—That Is The Question
Consider these common service types and how they can be applied to meet your vision:
Passed Appetizers are suitable for a business mixer or wedding cocktail hour. This type of service allows for socializing, occupies guests between related events and prevents guests from arriving late.
Plated/seated meals have a more traditional feel. This choice offers at least one distinct benefit: your guests are all served at once, and they don’t need to wait in a buffet line to receive their meals.
Buffets are beneficial in many ways too! For example, manned-action stations during a wedding reception encourage guests to get up and get moving!
Your Menu Sets The Tone
Your menu should match your style. Remember that food sets a tone. Trend-forward appetizers and swank cocktails are ideal for a sleek wedding reception, while a luxe dessert display or colorful candy bar gives off a distinctively modern vibe.
