I would like to have menu cards at our wedding since we are having a fair amount of Indian food, which I think should include descriptions for those not used to it. Still debating if I should try to DIY it, or get them professionally printed.
Has anyone gotten menu cards printed, and if so which vendor did you use? Any templates for those who decided to go the DIY route?

I used BeyondDesign on Etsy, and was very pleased with how mine turned out. She made double-sided table numbers/menu cards for me. http://www.etsy.com/shop/beyonddesign

My line of invitations on http://www.weddingpaperdivas.com includes menu cards, but we’re having the reception at a restaurant and they will include menus free of charge. I think we’ll just their print-outs, which won’t be fancy or matchy-matchy to the rest of our stationary, but will save us $200+ and I just don’t think guests will care/notice!

I think I’m going to attempt to DIY the menu cards, as I think they’re a really good idea. We’re having a buffet reception, but I think it’s nice for people to be able to see what choices they have prior to actually getting up there to look.

You can easily design these in Word and print 2/page. Cut straight down the middle of the long side of the paper.

I did my menu cards myself after I got sticker shock from professionally printed ones. 😉 Mine were pretty simple, but I could have made them more interesting if I’d wanted to invest the time… it cost about $2.50 to do 180 of them. 🙂

I’m having the same desiger do ours who did our invits and STDs. Not only do I want to display their food choices, but I’ve wored really hard with our planner to create a cohisive look, and I really wanted our menus, placecards, and table numbers to all match. I wanted to add to the table visually rather than just slap a half sheet of paper at everyones places. Moira Design Studio is doing our whole suite for us.

Here’s our menu card. I will be printing them on white cardstock and mounting them on stardream metallic cardstock (a combination of Malachite and Lapis Lazuli).
