Buffet-Style Wedding Reception


Suggested menus for a buffet-style wedding reception are presented below. These are designed to give you a small taste of our culinary range and reflect some of our client’s favorite selections.

Please keep in mind these are not your only options. Don’t hesitate to tell us what you want. As true custom caterers, PERFECT SETTING CATERING would be more than happy to customize a menu, just for you.

Wedding reception menus typically include passed or stationary hors d’oeuvres (or both) for the cocktail hour. Buffet dinners usually include a first course (a salad is the most popular), two proteins (plus a vegetarian option), a starch and vegetable, rolls and butter, the wedding cake and coffee.
