We’ll be answering all of the above – and more! – with three reasons why you may need wedding menu cards for your reception. Read on to find out more…
Wedding Menu Cards
You may want to have wedding menu cards if…
1. You’re having a sit-down formal dinner.
Wedding menu cards are essential if your reception dinner is a sit-down formal dinner. This will let your guests know what is coming up next. (And, if a guest is allergic, he or she will know the ingredients ahead of time.)
2. Your guests are ordering from a variety of items on the menu.
If your guests are selecting from various entrees on the menu (rather than ahead of time on your RSVP card), wedding menu cards at each place setting is essential. If you are having a buffet, you aren’t required to have wedding menus; however, you can if you’d like guests to know ahead of time what is for dinner.
3. You want to add a decorative touch to the table.
A pretty wedding menu card can add a nice touch to each guest’s place setting. Plus, it’s an added bonus for guests to read about what is coming up for dinner. You can include a thank you note for guests with the menu card. And, if you prefer, opt for a drink menu instead of a dinner menu (with a signature drink and its ingredients) to encourage guests to try your specialty beverage.
