Make It Your Own: "Meaningful Menus"

Pin It
One of the things your guests remember most is the food you serve at your wedding. Whether it's a buffet or sit down dinner, it is nice to let guests know what they will be eating on that special day. You can use one large menu at the beginning of the reception, lay out individual menus at each place setting, or incorporate the menu into a keepsake for guests to take home with them.

Individual menus at each place setting, can make it a little easier on your guests to remember what course is next or what options are at the food stations. It also can be a good way to mark, which meal goes to which guest, and helps clear up any confusion as to what the guest signed up for on their RSVP card. These cards can stand up on the table or lay nicely on the napkin or charger. This is also an opportunity for the menu to serve double duty as a favor. One example shows the menu printed onto a vintage napkin, which can be washed or just set aside and kept as a keepsake.


If you are trying to save paper or money, one large menu can be just as special, and you only have to make one. Items such as mirrors, window panes, or doors make beautiful backdrops for a menu. Some other examples are a creative use of paper, such as a large scroll, or painting wood or the center of a tray with chalkboard paint and writing the menu in chalk. Whether you decide to make individual menus or use one large menu, it is an extra detail that will add a personal touch to your wedding and a more memorable meal for your guests.
