Buffet reception- help!

Hey ladies!!

 

im feeling so much better n positive about my wedding so I'm back on the planning map!! So we are having a buffet reception. The thing is.. Idk how to table scape it! I think it's tacky if guests walk to the serving line with plates they took from the table.. With that being said.. Are there supposed to be plates at the tabke?? Or should we have charger plates? 

 

I welcome all suggestions n pics of inspiration :-)))

 I would say, if you can afford to do chargers, do it! Or even some kind of material in place of a charger. Leave the charger/ material on the table where each seat is and leave the plates at the buffet line. When they get their food and sit down, they have material/ charger to place their plate upon. If I do chargers, I'm going to make them from simple burlap (:

great idea ladies! 

 

unfortunately i dont feel like forking over some more cash for the chargers so i will have to do what @kimandbyron plan to do which is have the napkins folded in a decorative way and add the favors on top . the guests can bring the plates to their seats after getting up to get their food. my fear is that they try to bring the chargers with them when they go thinking the food will be placed directly on the charger... ha! couldn't bear risking to see that. LOL!

 Thats my dilemma too. I think I am going to have to find chargers for the table. They do make them look so much more dressed up and that way the plates can be stacked at the buffet.

 We did napkins and dessert plates with the favors on the table so it didn't look so empty, sorry can't post pics right now. Chargers can get expensive but do look nice.i think you'll be fine! The picture u posted is great!
