    I wouldn’t worry about having any type of printed menu if guests are making any food decisions.

    As a guest, I kind of appreciate knowing what’s coming.  But it’s not super important.

    If you just have 1 option, I don’t see it as super important. I agree with prettyflowers- as a guest, I like to know what’s coming.

    It’s entirely up to you if you want add that detail (and project) to your to-do list.

    We are having a menu on each table. This was a good way to provide people with a menu, but save some money.

    If I have menus, I’ll print them at home on colored card stock from Michael’s.  It’s like 20 cents a sheet and you could probably get at least 2 menus on a sheet (and cut them once printed).  Maybe that’s an option?

    We are making menus, but that’s more to help the waiters know who gets what choice (meat & veggie options). They aren’t required, but if you really think you need them, just type something simple up on some card stock. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy.

    I was really torn about menus too.  My fiance wanted them so guests could see what’s coming & I didn’t because I didn’t want to waste paper or add another project on my plate.  So, we decided to make a chalkboard menu for people to see when they walk in & back our table numbers with menus.

    All dinners are seated, regardless if they are buffet or pre-plated. That said, plated dinners are very impractical for printed menus. Most caterers who do offer choices require the selections before the wedding date, so even then, they are not practical. They are much better suited for a buffet, and in that case, one per person. With a plated meal, skip the menus.
