I think that would be fine.  People can share them.  Talk about the options even.  Besides, it’s a buffet.  It’s not like they need one to place an order when the waiter comes back!

i think every other would be odd and akward. if you’re having a buffet, i dont see the point of even putting the menu on the table since your guests will need to know what the food is as they are serving themselves rather than carrying the menu with them. really, the menus should be on the buffet itself, labeling each menu item.  that actually solved your problem all together since you would only need 8 or so (depending on how many menu items you have)

@clairdarling, I dont think the intention is for the guests to carry the menu with them. It is to give them an idea of what is available so they can be thinking about it before going up to the buffet. It will actually probably make things go a little smoother 🙂 However, I do think that labels at the buffet are a must on top of the menu!

I think I might do every other, and have it displayed like this photo since our centerpieces won’t take up much room. It can add some pizazz to the tables!

You could do one per couple, but I’d probably try to find a way to stand them up and do 1-3 per table.

We’re expecting around 150-160, and I made enough menus for every other plate to have one.  I think it’s just fine; couples will take turns looking at it to see what to expect once they get up to the buffet.

i wasnt thining that guests would be supposed to carry them with them, but in reality they would anyways.  i was just at a wedding and thats what happened.  i would just do menus on the buffet so they have it right in front of them when serving themselves.
