I’m having them because we’re having a stations buffet, so guests can decide while they’re sitting at the table which station(s) they want to hit.  They’re also necessary if guests are ordering tableside.  Otherwise, I wouldn’t bother personally.

I’m trying to figure out the same thing myself. It almost seems like a waste of trees and money to have a menu at each place setting (based on how much ours would be from our stationery vendor). I thought about having just one per table on a frame, although that may be a lot of frames if you have framed table numbers. If you would like to do just one big chalkboard (which is what we’ll probably end up with), you can maybe put it in a place that everyone is bound to walk by or see, like by the escort card table?

FWIW, we’re not having choices so our menu is a total mystery to the majority of our guests so either way, we will be doing something.

I think it’s a nice idea, some people like to know exactly what they are eating, if it has something they don’t like in it (various people in my family will not eat sweet potatoes, mushrooms, onions, garlic, tomatoes, peppers, etc). Some people just don’t like to be surprised.

i had menus for each place setting.  i only had 40ppl.  it was a diy project that i did for about $4 and they were a beautiful touch to the table.

Some people like to have menus, but you can certainly put them on the “not necessary” list.

If you want to have one per table, the Ikea Tolsby frame can be used in a number of ways and painted any color. They are 2/$1.99!

We are having menus for each place setting, but our guests are not choosing before the wedding (like there are no meal options on the RSVP) and so they’ll need to know what their options are when they sit down at the table so they can order tableside.
