I need help with a buffet wedding event timeline


New Member
Hello, does anyone had been to a wedding or known of someone that planned a buffet wedding?

I would like to ask if can anyone share with me the timeline of the actual day.

My wedding will be in Feb 2024. It will be a lunch buffet style wedding but there are assigned seats (round tables) for guests.
I'm not sure how to plan the events and programs for the wedding as I'm not sure how much time i should allocate for guest to take food / eat. I'm also guessing they will be mingling around ~ so should I not have assigned seats for guest?

I also dont mind doing like 2 sessions of guest, but then the 2nd session guest will missed the ROM ceremony.

Anyone has any suggestions? Thank you so much in advanced.
