Create letterpress wedding menus for each place setting at your wedding reception. View more on our blog

Why print menus?

Excite your guests for the meal ahead by printing sophisticated letterpress wedding menus. Menus are a great place to begin using your married, 3-letter monogram. Your menus can also do double-duty and serve as a place card for each place setting (work with one of our calligraphers to have the names of your guests hand-calligraphed on the top of each menu!). If a menu at each place setting is out of your budget, you can print a menu (or two!) for each table to share.

Menu etiquette

If your guests were asked to select a meal choice when returning their reply cards its likely you weren’t able to go into too much detail due to space restrictions and pending menu details. By including a menu at your dinner reception you can elaborate on the cow and fish icon by explaining the meal ahead in mouth-watering detail. Your caterer can help you explain each dish and side dish so that your menu is as detailed as you wish. For guests with allergies or diet restrictions the menu provides them with an advance notice of what to expect, allowing them to talk with the waitstaff prior to being put on the spot when their dinner is placed before them.
