All of your wedding guests will be very interested to know what the wedding menu is on your big day! Menu cards outline the delicious meal you have planned while also adding beautiful details and colour to your tablescape.
The menu can be designed to provide consistency with your colour palette used across the wedding stationery on the day such as any table plans, table names and guest place names. Consider your crockery and cutlery plus any decorative table items and choose colours that will enhance the overall look and make it all come together beautifully.
What do I need to include on my wedding menu?
Many couples I design for choose to have a wedding menu per guest, with the full meal listed out as the starter, main and dessert. It is possible to have variations for the different dietary requirements you may need to cater for your guests such as vegetarian or gluten-free. We can work through this together once you have a breakdown of what is needed.

Different paper options are available to be consistent with the rest of your wedding stationery. This couple chose handmade paper with deckle edges for the menu and place names.

I love designing guest place names which are layered on to a wedding menu because there are so many colour, shape and finishing touch options. I love this gorgeous hand calligraphered place name, layered onto a white menu with calligraphy detail and a watercolour foliage design.
Place names can be secured to menus in a variety of ways such as this modern paperclip.

Or secured with a ribbon to match the colour palette which looks so pretty next to the gold foil calligraphy and menu text.

Different tones and colours can be layered and used to create a beautiful place setting.

I can also combine your menu and place names into one piece of stationery, so each menu is personalised to your guest.

There’s options for luxury finishing touches too by adding a personalised wax seal.

Alternatively, you may choose to have a menu per table which lists out all of the menu options for your guests. This works particularly well if you have sharing style food.
