My fiance and I are really interested in having Stations for our wedding. We like the idea of not having a full plated meal where guests are seated for long stretches of time, we really want to encourage a fun, easy going, casual (but elegant!) atmosphere for our reception. However, neither of us have been to a wedding with a stations meal, and were wondering if they are worth having, or if we should, actually, go with a traditional plated meal. I will be sure that there is enough seating for everyone, not just a percentage of our guests as our caterer had suggested (I spoke to some people who confirmed my idea that everyone would want a place to sit, even if they didnt spend much time there), but was just wondering if there are any other "snags" we should be aware of, or if the idea of stations has been glamourized lately and they are not really as successful as they sound.
Thank you in advance for your input, I am curious to see how everyone feels about this!
