Wedding Caterer DFW | Gil's: Benefits of a Buffet-Style Dinner


Still trying to decide which serving style is best for your special day? Buffet meals and plated dinners each have distinctive pros and cons; either one could be a good fit for your wedding day. Last month we brought you our top reasons to serve a plated dinner; today, we’re taking a look at buffet-style meals. Take a look at a few benefits of serving your wedding dinner buffet-style:

  • Casual feel: for some couples, a plated dinner is a bit too formal. A buffet, on the other hand, creates a more casual atmosphere—which may be desired for an intimate reception or a more laid back celebration.
  • More food options: if you’d like to provide multiple entrées or sides, a buffet could be your best bet. Serve multiple dishes, allowing guests their choice of delectable foods. Plus, guests can easily pass on any dishes that might not suit their palette.
  • No wait time between courses: while a multi-course meal can actually help schedule flow, it does involve a brief pause between each course. A buffet, on the other hand, allows guests to enjoy the full meal all at once, without waiting for each new dish to be served.
  • Easy planning: take a look at our buffet options to form a pre-selected menu. Once you’ve decided on your buffet items, there’s no need to track guests’ food preferences or worry about a seating chart that will appropriately serve chicken or beef to each guest. A buffet can help alleviate planning stress from the bride and groom, without sacrificing amazing food and service!
