The wedding reception menus are a small piece of a much larger puzzle, but are important, nonetheless.

Your menus should fit the overall theme of your wedding.  Has it been a formal affair?  Choose a more luxurious font and letterhead.

A little more playful?  Try a classy yet fun menu and tablescape, complete with your own personal decorative touches.  The guests will be blown away by your attention to detail.

When designing your menus be sure to bear in mind what type of food you will be serving.  Use a color pallet that fits in with your overall theme.

If you are having a cultural celebration, there’s no better way to showcase your history than through great food.  Whether the cuisine for your wedding is 100% authentic, or just gives some thoughtful nods to your favorite dishes, your unique personality should have ample room to shine through.

If you’re offering an open bar it’s nice to show their guests their options.  Maybe you could showcase a few favorite drinks.

Whether it’s hand-written or professionally printed, the menus at your wedding say so much about who you are as a couple.  Make your reception unforgettable!
