    I would imagine it is down to the caterer.

    Try attending a full Chinese Banquet wedding.
    10 course meal in classy restaurant, if it's a good one, it'll be a meal to remember.

    Tuna mayo sandwich... pfff :p

    Awesome thread. Infact there should be a buffet appreciation thread as well!

    tbh though my vote goes to wedding buffets as i generally find that my appetite isnt up to much at a funeral. What with the death and all.

    Hopefully there'll be no tuna mayo sarnies at my wedding buffet!

    Will have to ask the missus to be what is actually on the menu lol

    I always find wedding buffets are full of that Neuvelle Cuisine crap or some arty farty rubbish that the bridge/groom/parents have forked out an arm and a leg for just to try and show off to the guests.

    Funerals (or a wake if you want to be a pedentic sod but likewise you don't get food at a wedding but at the reception!! ) however, dunno, find the food there far more traditional and the 'buffet' concept allows mourners to mingle more as they pick their faves off paper plates and remember the departed.

    Funerals for me.

    I will say wedding buffets because I have been to 1 wedding and 1 funeral. and only the wedding had a buffet. The funeral had a corpse.

    ~J~ why is it called a "wake" when the last thing you expect them to do is wake up?
