hey all ,been lurking the forums for a while and joined today to say hi and ask a few questions
We get married in August and have planned a 4pm wedding followed by canape drinks reception followed by a Hot Buffet with Desserts etc
We didnt really want the formal 3 course sit down wedding breakfast as the food is never that great
My question is to any of you who has been to a wedding like this , a few questions -
Did you still have table plans ?
When the buffet is announced as open is it a free for all and all 70 guests get up and once to fight for the food or do you call each table at a time ?
Did you all sit down and do the speeches first before the buffet is called ?
We like the idea of the informal buffet but concerned on how its organised , any feedback on what worked and didnt work would be great
We are not having evening guests so we imagine the timings as follows
4.30pm - 6pm Canape and drinsk reception
6pm speeches then buffet callled ?
7.30pm drinks and dancing
Any tips appreciated , we are worried at the moment if we should have just gone the traditional breakfast , we have visions of the last few tables sat waiting for food disgruntled !
