    Hello ladies! I'm getting married at Dreams Palm Beach on 4/15/2017. Should I have menus for guests if the dinner is buffet style. If so, can you send me pics of your menus that you used for ideas?

    @crodriguez03 I think this is entirely up to you! If it were me and I was having a buffet I wouldn't do a menu on each plate but I would make sure in front of each food there was a sign saying what the food is and maybe one menu per table that says what the options are. I don't think a menu on the table is necessary but if you are inclined, it's something for everyone to look at before they get up to the food.

      @crodriguez03 Congrats and welcome. I agree - it's completely your choice. But I would definitely have something posted somewhere so that guests know what their options are. Some resorts will post a large menu on entering the dining area that gives the choices available. I like the idea of a menu on each table that gives all of the info. You could talk to your venue and see if they'll provide that for you.

      I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

        I've always liked the idea of letting my guests know what's on the menu. I know when I've attended big events/weddings I always like to know what I'm eating especially for a buffet! 


        I think you can do it several different ways:


        -- putting a complete menu of the options on each plate

        -- putting a full menu of the options at each table

        -- putting a label of each dish right in front of the serving container (I just spent a few days at a resort in Mexico and this is how they did it at each buffet and this was more than enough for me!)
