    For the stations, you could always place a small note in a picture frame on the table next to the food explaining what each item is, but I wouldn’t worry about doing a complete menu.  After all – they can always ask the servers what they’re passing.

    I voted yes, because I know some people coming to my wedding have food allergies. I wouldn’t want to make them ask at every station. I’d put a food description at the stations. But guests can just ask the bulters serving the passed hors d’oeurves (or you can have bulters give a short description as they pass them out to everyone).

    I agree with ChiCat. You don’t need a complete menu list, just label the stations. I have even seen cards on the trays being passed that say what the item is. And those with allergies will usually ask when they see a food that commonly has those types of ingrediants (think chicken satay- it almost always has a peanut dipping sauce, or mushroom caps that are often stuffed with seafood)

    The guests can always ask the servers walking around and since everyone is so busy mingling they might not see the menu and ask any way.

    I am doing almost the same thing as you!

    I am not going to have a menu.  Most of my friends who have food allergies are very careful about what they eat and will ask the servers what the hors d’oeuvres are.

    I do like the idea of making sure that the stations are labeled though!

    I say yes too, I had menus for the bar, buffet, and cupcakes. They can be very cute & simple 🙂

    I voted yes but you don’t need a menu per se, definitely a list of what is being served.  However, in the event of folks with allergies, be sure that the description details enough so folks will know whether or not to eat it.

    The servers that are passing your hors d’oervres should tell each guest what each item is. For the stations, since everyone will be walking around, I agree with the menu idea at each station. We are having a buffet with a seat with place setting for each guest, so we will be including menus at each place setting.
