akshali2000 :  Usually I’ve seen menus for plated dinners where I’ve basically selected my entree already but now I get to see what it really is. Like I selected “fish”, but now I’ll see “scallops in a lemon butter sauce with brocolini and mashed potato”, you know?

I think menu cards are a waste of time, paper, and money unless people are literally ordering on the spot.

I think enough paper gets wasted at weddings, and they are already expensive. If you have a website I’d put the menu there and not worry about paper menus.

Since you are having a buffet why don’t you just label your food that way you save money and your guests know what they are eating

We’re having a plated dinner but plan to do a nice chalkboard menu to display. I find menu cards to be a huge waste of paper and money. It sounds like you’ll have the dishes labeled at the buffet, so I wouldn’t worry about it at all!

Unless you are having some super ethnic dishes no one knows about skip the menu cards. It’s a waste.
