You don’t need to have a menu if they’re already chosen. They should remember what they selected and if not, happy surprise!

I don’t understand why there are menus if the meals were chosen prior. I feel like it might make the guest assume that you never got their meal choice or that they have the option to change their prior choice. 

However I know that people like to have the menu tucked into the napkin, so if you want to do that then go for it.

cls9q:  ha! That’s what a wedding planning wesbite is for.. She needed a lot of questions answered. Not everyone wants to hire a wedding planner or can afford one.

But, you would not need a menu if your guests already selected their meal. That seems redundant and confusing.

cls9q:  She  is a new member and your answer was incredibly rude. You could have tackled just one of her questions or ignored her post. Instead you basically told her to go elsewhere.

It depends on the caterer.  What I’ve seen is you put the entree they chose on the placecard with their names. The placecards are usually color-coded by meal at that point so the caterer knows who to deliver what to. But, agreed with PP, definitely no menus since they already selected their meals.

cls9q:  Menus aren’t needed. I wouldn’t waste time/money on menus when your guests are choosing their meal ahead of time. If you feel the need to have them, I would do 1 menu per table and write something like this (very rough of course)

Appitizer – Caesar Salad

Main Course (You choice of) -Chicken

                                             -Beef

                                            – Salmon

Dessert – Wedding Cake

             –  Dessert Bar

Our Venue is doing menus on the table for us even though we are having a plated meal. They will put everything we need and most guests know what they are having because they had to tell us how they wanted their meat cooked.  If they weren’t doing it, its not an area where I’d wanna spend money on paper. We have a wedding website so people can just look it up if needed.

cls9q:  I had 3 meal options, but did not include menues at place settings.  I think that would be complicated for both you, and those setting up for the reception, because you *assign* guests to a table, but not to a seat.  (Which, our venue asked that in order to let their servers know whom got what, attach something on the back of each placecard, that was visible.  Whether it be the protein they ordered, or a colored sticker, etc!)

If menues were something you really wanted to do, then I would do one table menu with each option?!

cls9q:  Would you be actually using the menu as something that is collected for the caterer to know who gets what? In the past, I’ve seen the menus list everything that is being offered with “or” in between them that are kind of just used for decoration. I think you could just do one menu that listed all of the options available to them.

cls9q:  I actually want to know other’s thoughts on this because while we are precounting entree choices, we are serving some rather complex fine dining. I would like our less food-educated guests to be able to identify what it is they are eating. I think we will use menus anyway. We are hosting a dinner in a fine restaurant so they will provide the menus.
