Our venue requested that we have people choose between the two menu options so that they know how much of each dish to prepare.  I am thinking of including menu cards just the same though as the guests only know about the main ingredient of the main course (cod or chicken).

For your situation I think that the menu cards will make things run more smoothly as people will see their options instead of just hearing them 🙂  Plus, they look great on the place settings!

If you have time and money to provide menu cards, they are a nice option; perhaps not one for every place setting, but a few per table.  Especially for elderly guests who might be a little hard of hearing, communicating effectively with the waiter with all the background noise that can be present in a large room is problematic.  Although for most of your guests, given that you only have two options, it’s not any different than listening to the waiter recite the specials in a nice restaurant.  So if you don’t have time or money, I wouldn’t worry about it too much.  It’s really just one more thing that will go in the trash at the end of the day.

Are they necessary? no

Are they a good idea? Yes

maybe you can have a big menu as the guests walk in to read instead of a individual menus
