    I like seeing a menu card with the details on it once I sit down so I know what I’m getting.  If you don’t want to spend the money for individual ones, perhaps you could do one per table and put it in a cute frame?

    Adorable! I think I’d probably put it near the door when guests walk in but the only downside is that if a large group enters at once, it’s possible that not everyone will be able to see it or it might get jostled by entering guests. Would it be possible to do one menu per table or do you think that’d look silly? I’d personally consider having a big one and a communal smaller one per table, but that’s just me. Alternatively, if the bar is located in a convenient and visible place, maybe having just one big one there would do. 🙂

    I voted 1 menu board at enterance, but I agree with the other PP’s. I LOVE the large sign, it’s cute. Then you could put one menu per table. I think per person is a waste, but per table at least 1 or 2 people would look at it and that would make it worth it.

    If you are doing a buffet, I think a menu board at the entrance is fine! If you are doing a plated entree, I think a menu per person is better.  Because if you have a buffet, people can decide what they want when they get up there, and plated I prefer a menu that way you know what’s coming.

    We are doing menu cards & signature drink cards even though we are doing a buffet.

    I find it easier for people to get their food quickly when they know what to expect.

    The menu board is really cute. But you can also print one per table, like a PP suggested. We were at a wedding like this and it was nice. It was topic of conversation with people we didn’t know.
