Nicole wrote us with the latest Ask Emmaline question:
“Hi Emmaline! I’m planning to DIY or buy wedding menus but I was curious, is it one wedding menu per table or per person? Thanks!”
Nicole, great question! I wondered the same thing about my wedding: can you get by with just one menu per table?
While menus are on the optional side of stationery, the recommendation is one menu per person. It is helpful in dim-lit reception halls for guests to easily read the menu at their seat.
However, if you can only budget one per table, that works! Prefer the look of one menu per person at your place settings, go for it! It’s completely up to you.
How will you display your menus?
One Menu Per Table
If you’re displaying one menu per table, you’ll want to use something to display it nicely, rather than propping it against your centerpiece. Insert two menus back-to-back inside these acrylic menu holders.
The standard size of a wedding menu is 5×7 and these are sized just right. (There is also a 4×6 option, just in case.) I’ve used these myself at a recent wedding and they worked beautifully for table numbers. :)
One Menu Per Person
If you’re going with one menu per person, we recommend placing it at each guest’s place setting. Easy, peasy.
If you need inspiration, here are a few menus that recently caught my eye over at Minted. You can choose any kind of theme, from rustic to botanical.
This classic black-and-white menu has a cool modern tone.
Note: All wedding menus can be customized in your choice of colors, so don’t feel limited! You can explore tons of menus here.
When you decide to order wedding menus, try to order them at the same time as other coordinating stationery (such as your invitations) so you can really save money on shipping. :) You can find menus and invitations to coordinate here.
Hope it helps!
