Wedding dinners are generally served as a buffet or a sit down dinner. But a family style service offers a unique way to bring together two families and encourage interaction among your guests. During family style service, waiters bring platters of food to the table, to be shared. Plates are passed around and guests serve themselves. It works beautifully with various menus and it allows your guests to try new things without wasting food... and your money.
The great thing about family style service is that it politely forces your guests to talk with one another. Put members from each family at the same table. Who knows? You may even end up with in-laws that... dare I say... like each other!
