A wedding menu card typically includes information about the meal that will be served during the reception. Here’s what you might include on a wedding menu card:
Start with a fancy header or title that says “Wedding menu” to let people know what it is.
Courses or Sections:
List the various courses or sections of the meal. Common sections include appetizers, main courses, side dishes, and desserts.
Under each course or section, list the specific dishes that will be served. Include both the name of the dish and a brief description. For example:
- Appetizers: Caprese Skewers – Fresh mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, and basil drizzled with balsamic glaze.
- Main Course: Grilled Salmon – Lemon-dill marinated salmon served with roasted vegetables and herbed couscous.
Special Diet Information:
If you are accommodating dietary restrictions or providing vegetarian/vegan options, make sure to include symbols or labels indicating these options.
Include a list of the beverages that will be available, such as wines, cocktails, and non-alcoholic options.
List the dessert options that will be served, including cakes, pastries, and other sweet treats.
Bread and Butter:
Indicate whether a bread and butter service will be provided, if applicable.
Presentation and Styling:
You can also add decorative elements, illustrations, or a colour scheme that matches your wedding theme and overall aesthetic if you want to, or keep it simple.
Keep in mind that the design and information on your wedding menu card can be altered to suit your tastes and the wedding’s overall theme. Make sure the menu is clear and simple, and you can also match the design with your other wedding stationery for a finished look.
