How to present a wedding menu?

One of the most anticipated moments of a wedding, besides the union of the couple, is the banquet. The most discussed, the most criticized, the most appreciated-every banquet is different, each banquet is its own and tries to reflect the demands of the newlyweds. Food is important in a party, of course, but so is the way you present the menu.

Presenting a wedding menu is an important moment as it helps create a memorable experience for guests. You will have to decide many things, from the format to the design, to the order and name of the plates, to the quality material from which it is made. There are several ways to make your menu, either by relying on industry professionals or by choosing to create a DIY wedding menu. Before printing the final menus, do a final review to make sure everything is correct and consistent. With a little care and creativity, the wedding menu will be a special item that guests will remember with pleasure.

The graphics of the menu

First, decide which format best suits your wedding style. You can opt for a single paper menu to be placed on each table, such as wedding menucards, or a larger one placed at the entrance to the reception venue. After choosing how to display the menu to your guests, you will need to think about the graphics. Form and substance must be balanced, otherwise one would end up overpowering and overshadowing the other. All must work together to achieve an unbeatable end result. After deciding what dishes your banquet will consist of, it is time for you to think about how and where to write them. A self-respecting ceremony menu must present the utmost care in appearance. Try to be as consistent as possible with your wedding theme, and if you want, you could also create a continuous line with your wedding invitations. Choose high-quality paper or other durable material for printing or making menus. A touch of elegance and attention to detail will make all the difference.

The items that should be mentioned within the wedding menu are the names of the bride and groom and the date of the ceremony, the word menu, and, next, the list of dishes. It starts with an appetizer or entrée and continues with entrees, main courses, side dishes. At the end, don’t forget to list the wines that are to be served. At the end of all courses, there will be a dessert and fruit buffet, accompanied by the magical cutting of the cake.

Tell about the dishes

If you have enough space to do so, devote a few lines to describing the dishes. Do not talk about the dishes in a simple and trivial way, but use fictional descriptions that are able to arouse curiosity in those who read the menu. The guest should feel considered in this as well, as it is important to be faced with millimeter-accurate details. Wines must also, in a sense, be told. In the last part of the menu, there will be an item that will group all the wines used during the service and previously selected by the bride and groom. They should be written giving each one the same space and prominence and writing the same characteristics for each one. You will need to indicate some information, such as:

  • typology;
  • denomination;
  • the name of the wine;
  • vintage;
  • the producer.

Uses formal and refined language to present the menu. You can add a short thank-you note or a special message to guests.

Who thinks about the wedding menu?

If you need a wedding menu , you have two choices: rely on a wedding planner, or resort to DIY. In the first case, this professional and experienced figure in the field will lead you to the right choice for you and the marriage context. It will itself turn to other professionals who deal with graphics and printing, and all you have to do is put in the ideas and let those who know a few more than you advise you. If, however, you are a do-it-yourselfer, you can always opt to create a DIY menu. It will be fun to work for your wedding, spending time producing something that is meant to amaze and engage your guests. If you are undecided between the table menu and the one placed on easels, you can also opt for both, so as to create the scenic effect at the entrance of the venue, where guests are faced with this tableau, as well as reading all they need once they are seated at their tables.

Of all the wedding preparations, the menu is one of the most important things. Menus means conviviality, serenity, and a desire to party, and your guests certainly can’t be left with a fistful. Also very much in vogue is a table menu, which is more practical than the tableau because you can read it when you want to and also much less cumbersome than individual menus delivered to each person invited.
