After you have planned the decorations and the venue for your wedding, the next thing to do is make arrangements for food. In addition to deciding what is to be served, you also have to decide how it will be served.

Events-4Life in Redmond, Washington, is well equipped to help you create a picture-perfect wedding with special attention towards all your needs on your special day, including food arrangements.

Let’s explore the different types of serving styles you can choose for your wedding reception. 

  • Buffet Style

This serving style is ideal when you have large groups of people at your wedding. It is self-service. All the food is laid out and guests can then choose to eat whatever they like and even go back for seconds. 

  • Plate Style Serving

This style is meant for smaller groups of people. Guests are seated comfortably and served two to three course meals that usually include an appetizer, an entrée, and dessert. 

  • Family Style

This type of serving offers a unique and intimate experience. Also referred to as “large format dining”, family style means the food is served on large plates rather than on individual plates. So, people share the food just like they would at a dining table at home.

  • Food Trucks

Serving from a food truck is a unique option that allows you to serve an assortment of food items. This includes gourmet burgers, waffles, panini, and even desserts. This is one of the most fun options as it gives your guests a casual dining experience. 

  • Cake and Appetizers or Hors D’Oeuvres

Despite being less known, this serving style is gaining popularity. In this serving style, only appetizers and cakes are served instead of a full dinner. Usually, the bite-sized items are served along with cocktails. Hors d'oeuvres are served to guests at a table.
