Which Style of Wedding Catering is Right for You?

Choosing wedding catering in Augusta, GA, is no easy task. There are so many tasty options! Before you select a specific caterer, you must decide the style of food service you prefer for your wedding reception. We discuss the three primary catering options below.

Buffet, Family Style, and Full-Service Catering

With buffet style catering, food is presented on one long table according to type and guests serves themselves. The typical buffet will include options for a salad, main dish, and desert.

With family style catering, waitstaff places a large platters of food, typically salad or pasta dishes, at each table and guests can serve themselves onto their own plates.

Full-service wedding catering is a second style for you to consider. After your guests have been comfortably seated at their table, a caterer will present each one with a plated meal containing the food choice you selected in advance. Some brides and grooms send a food option ballot with their wedding invitation to provide guests with two or three options. As the name implies, full-service wedding catering offers the most comprehensive services to brides and grooms. The catering staff handles setting up the tables, preparing and serving the food, and cleaning up afterwards. Full-service caterers also tend to offer the most food options for guests and accommodate a wide range of preferences or food allergies.
