      I don't think you are required to have menu cards at all, I think it is whether you want them or not, or how formal you are going. If you would like to include a menu card for each guest you could, but what about having an 8x10 piece by each station describing what is there. I have done that for a few of my clients.

      Hope this helps.

        Great question! I am having a buffet as well and I'm wondering the same thing. Hopefully more girls with chime in with their thoughts.

            My wedding is an outdoor so it is informal. My centerpieces are small and there is not much on the table.... I think I will include a menu if I can make myself. Just to fill the table a little.Another question...would I include the candy buffet on the menu card?

              I've been to a lot of weddings and I rarely ever see menu cards for buffets. However, I really appreciate when they are out. I'm vegetarian, so having a menu card helps me to know if I can eat certain items, because a lot of recipes use chicken/beef stock these days or the meat is so small I can't see it right off the bat. I know people with food allergies really appreciate menu cards as well.

                it is never required to have a menu card, but i have been to a wedding that was buffet style that had one. i think it was nice to know what was up there before you hit the buffet line (i.e. you might not put chicken on your plate if you knew there was a beef carving station further down the line!). also, as someone else mentioned, they are definitely helpful for people with allergies or even the generally fussy. i say do it ... menu cards are one of those nice touches that dress up the tables a bit and don't cost much. very easy to DIY!
