    They look pretty good. But I would probably make the names of the food items larger and the descriptions smaller.

    Also, not to be nit picky, but I think “thin sliced prosciutto” is better than “thinly sliced”.

    thin is an adjective, thinly is an adverb, and as such is the correct form to use in this situation -looks like you are ok on that count

    sorry that I can’t offer any other comment as I am at work and pictures are blocked for some reason

    I think table decor is overrated (of course, I’m not having any centerpieces or decor on the table myself, just tented menu cards and bottles of champagne & water, so…). At my favorite restaurants, most of them don’t have more than a single tealight or one tiny vase with a little gardenia in it or something, if that. Most restaurants also need the space for things like bread and butter, salt and pepper, your wine, etc.

    I think that you’re fine.

    Thinly sliced is perfectly fine and correct.

    But to answer your real question… is there anything else on the table? Any kind of centerpieces? I think menu cards are a great touch, and will probably be enough!

    I think that would be enough.

    I just have one comment about your seating:  You may want to designate a seat for you and your groom?  That way you ensure that you will be sitting together.  Everyone else can still sit anywhere!

    @Statutory Grape: your menu came out great~ ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy you got it worked out!

     

    With the type of reception you are having I think just the menu cards are plenty!

    How big are the cards?  Will they stand up or just at each place setting?  Will there be a napkin, plate, silverware, glasses on the table as well?  

    Just looking at the menu its really hard to tell if that will “be enough”.

    @Statutory Grape: what about tying like a sign with ribbons to the back of your chairs?

    Right, haha. I know it goes without saying that you SHOULD sit together, but if you 2 are the last 2 to be seated, you may have one chair at each end of the table open and then people have to shift seats to make 2 seats together.

    You could just have 2 little tented cards that say “bride” and groom” where you would like to sit.  Or tie a sash or sign around two chairs.
