My DIY Reception Menu Cards with DIY Thank You Note Card

Recommended Posts

I created these menus and thank you notecards to be placed at each place setting at my reception. They were super easy to make and will help create a finished and put together look for the tables. 

 

Menu:

All I did was create a design and insert my design into Word and then print on nice quality paper. I then taped the menu to purple card stock. Easy peasy! Oh- I also punched two holes at the top and tied a piece of rafia through to finish the look. 

Menu:

For the tank you card- I definitely can't take credit for the wording although I did tweak it a little to better suit us. Thank you's similar to mine are all over Pinterest and Etsy but I knew I could make one myself for almost free! I designed the thank you note card just as I did the menu and printed it at home also taping it to purple card stock.

This is how they will be set up together at each place setting with the Thank You Note Card on top of the Menu:

Happy Planning, ladies! Please let me know if you have any questions. :)

This is beautiful Meg!! I guess we all love that "thank you" as I'm using it as well [just different fonts/colors].

Thanks for sharing =)

Thanks girls! Haha yes I think thanks to Pinterest this will be a popular thing at weddings for awhile. :) I'd love to see both of yours when you complete them.

Meg when you say you made a design then put it into word...where did you create the design? I am NOT computer savvy at all, but I would love to try to make these myself to save on money!

Hi sorry girls unfortunately I didn't use a template. However, you could definitely do something similar! I use picmonkey.com to create my designs. It's free and fairly simple and great for beginners!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
