Masterful Menu Designs for Your Wedding Reception

Infusing your personality into the décor elements of the ceremony and reception is often at the top of the list for brides and grooms. Many want their event to reflect an elevated version of their style as a couple, and while this task comes quite easily to some, others struggle with how to go about achieving the “right” look. Your taste in design will help to make all of those decisions – even down to the most minute of details. If you’re looking to add some customized flair to your paper goods, don’t forget to include your reception menus.

While they certainly are not a requirement, as guests have likely chosen their dinner selections before or will be presented with buffet options, menus can spice up your tablescapes and remind attendees of the culinary choices available. Cuisine is always an important element of a formal wedding, and displaying fare in a creative and elegant fashion is a great way to kick off the meal. Friends and family will admire your attention to detail, and you can keep a copy as memorabilia from your day.
