my fiance and i are trying to decide if we should have a sit down dinner or a buffet... we know that since i'm not compromising the evening thing that we will be expected to serve dinner... i would really like an elegant sit down dinner whereas my fiance believes that we should save money wherever we can and that a buffet would be cheaper. i'm just wondering, how many of you had sit down dinners and how much did it run you? same for those of you who had buffets, how much? do you guys think that it would really be cheaper to have a buffet? or could i splurge on this one thing?
