Our reception features a plated meal and the guests were asked to preselect a meal option (3 choices) on the reception response cards. Since their meal is preselected, do I still to do a menu card? I am kind of confused on how this works with preselected meals.
Thanks for the help with this!

I would. Refresh their memory. I am assuming that the waiter will still ask them what they chose, so I wouldn’t expect them to remember what the options were.

We didn’t do menu cards; we just wrote their meal choice on their place card. Some other people draw pictures or put cute little stickers on the place cards indicating to the waiters what meal choice that guest has. Other people use colors to indicate the choice. As long as your catering staff knows what the person chose, I don’t think you need menu cards.

Oh, that makes lots of sense.

I agree with Mrs. Spring. If you know what they selected, you can put a colored dot/picture to represent it. If you want to make cute menu cards though, you can. That’s always fun.

We color coded our escort cards (they were actually boxes) so the server knew who got what. We still did menus, though, which had run-down of each meal since the RSVP card only had “Flank Steak” or “Chicken Havarti” and wasn’t very detailed. I mainly did the menus because I did so many DIY things (from stationery to signage) so the menus were just one more thing I “HAD” to do; plus they added even more color to the tables.

The last wedding I attended where we had to preselect our meal color coded the word MENU on the menus at our placesetting. Pale Pink, Bright Pink, and Brown denoted different selections so the waiters just looked at the color.
