I am startign to think about the tables and menus.
Are you suppose to have a menu presented for every guest (menu on a plate) or one per table ?
All our guests have selected their meals and I am just wondering if I should print of menues for everyone or one for each table.
All tables will be round.
I also have to think of a table number and what the design will be. If it’s a table number in a frame, then I don’t want another frame with a menu, cuz wouldn’t that be too much stuff on the tables?
Help me out

Do whatever you want. There is no “right” or “wrong” on this one because your guests have pre-ordered. Heck, since they’ve pre-ordered, there isn’t even a need for one menu, if you wanted to skip that piece alltogether.

We did 2 per table – on the back of the table numbers.

@Lulume: i am printing menus for every place setting. but my graphic designer friend is doing this and it is not costing me anything.
if it was not free, i would either have 1 or 2 at each table or none at all.
you can do whatever you want, there is no right or wrong way.

@Lulume: menus aren’t really necessary but they are a nice touch. i did one menu per person at their place setting. the only reason i did them was because it was diy and i only needed 40 of them. i already had the white and black card stock that i could cut to size. i spent another $2 on fuschia bristol board for additional colour layers and $2 on ribbon for the top accent.

One menu per table is ample, but you can certainly do individual menus if you prefer.
The Ikea Tolsby picture frame is two sided, very reasonably priced and can be spray painted any color you like- perfect for the table number or name on one side, and the menu on the other.

I am doing around 4-5 menus per table and placing them in between plates so they can be shared by all. I would have liked to do one per plate but that was way too pricey.

We placed a menu on each charger. I printed them at work for free and used a paper cutter I bought at Michaels to make them the right size, then folded them inside the linen napkins. I thought it looked really nice!
But, we had a buffet. It was important for me that everyone knew what the options were to make the line move quicker. I hate going through a buffet and loading up at the beginning, and then realizing the food at the end is way better!
I think since people already picked their meal, you don’t “need” a menu at each place setting; maybe one or two would be nice, or just one big one at the door.

I don’t think it is necessary for everyone to have one since they have already selected their meals. Maybe 2 per table so it’s easier for everyone to see?

I have all the cardstock already, so it would just be me printing them at home and it would cost nothing extra to do them.
Ahh decissions….decissions LOL

I think I’ll be doing tables on each place setting simply because I like the look of it. I’ll be doing something like this:
However, this is by no means necessary. You can either:
1. Not have menus
2. Have one big menu maybe near the bar or front of the room? Like so:
3. Have one menu per table (maybe on the other side of the table number frame) as a pp already demonstrated
4. Scatter menus, or do one per place setting. You can make them up yourself to cut down on costs, or order thorugh vistaprint! I think they have another Groupon going on right now.
