    I am a little confused about the menu cards. The Hilton is making our guests order their main courses ahead of time, so they do not really have an option at the wedding. Do we still do menu cards at each seat? It seems kind of silly because people have already ordered. What do you think? If we do not do menu cards, do we place anything on the plate?

      I printed menu cards so the guests could see what the other food was.. appetizer/salad/dessert.. things they didn't pick. We're putting one at each seat, but this totally isn't necessary. We're also using starfish placecards with brown or blue ribbon so the wait staff knows who gets what meal.. we put a swarvoski crystal on each to add a little bling.

      Neither of these things are necessary at all.

        These4 are so pretty, did you do this yourself? I love the added crystal! Great touch.

          Thanks! I designed them and printed. I purchased cardstock to match my invitations and had the blue/brown custom cut (very expensive but IMO worth it!).

          Last weekend my girls came over and we put together all my projects. I've been meaning to post, but have been pretty busy at work. I'll put out one of those "here's my stuff" emails before we go!

            I had menu cards that listed the canapes, the dinner options (already chosen) and dessert. The other side of the card listed the bar options.

              You did a great job ... they're beautiful! Can I ask where you got the scroll image you used?

                It's the font Floralia "e".
