Menu Inspiration

I love the idea of menus at weddings, whether it’s a sit down affair or a buffet, you can still let people know what they are about to eat. It’s really the polite thing to do. And you know you can have assigned seating AND menus and still have a buffet, right? Don't let a lack of waiters dictate fun and pretty table settings!

At my wedding, I used the Brides template that I got at Michael’s (with my 20% off coupon, natch) because it was cohesive and easy for me to print and maintain a semblance of sanity. The cool part was that the waiters at Mere Bulles actually announced the dinner menu and options. I had no idea they were going to do this and it really personalized the dinner and got people interacting right off the bat. Here are my menus:

Personalize menus and double them up as place cards! Via Adeline & Grace Photography. P.S. This is the same font I used on all my wedding paper goodies and it’s called Brock Script.

Just remember, not too close to the candles….
