Are you looking for *proofreading* (i.e. corrections to the spelling, capitalization, etc.) or suggestions for changes to the menu itself?

If it’s proofreading you want: two-word adjectives generally get a hyphen, so “two-apple salad” and “cracked-wheat sourdough”

Capitalize the P in “Peruvian potatoes”

Sounds tasty! If you are looking for menu suggestions, I would recommend a vegetarian entree option of some sort. I would be eating a lot of Peruvian potatoes and roasted veggies at this wedding. And a lot of cake. I might have to sample all three varieties in order to compensate for not having a vegetarian entree! Tongue Out

Agree with PP, except I’d also add comma after “warm,” a hyphen between “Garlic-crusted,” and another between “Butter-yellow”


Just a general art note: you never want your text to sit that close to the top of the page. Not sure if it’s been cut off by the scanner or if it was designed that way, but thought I’d point it out. I like the green!

@KCKnd2:  I agree with those suggestions.

Could you put a line of space between “tomato veal reduction” and “Accompanied by”?

@August252012:  Sounds yummy. I agree with the other person’s comments. I also *think* that “tomato” in the salad description should be plural since the others items are. Should be: tomatoes

Also – regarding the entree descrptions, the last part “Accompanied…” I’m assuming that is for all of the entree choices and not just the final selection?  Perhaps make that smaller font if possible from the main choices or italics? Or you can even add “All entrees accompanied with…”

Tip from a graphic designer – watch your line breaks.  Meaning, where the sentence goes onto the next line.  You want to keep phrases or items together so as not to confuse the eye.

For example, in the first line, your line breaks between “red” and “onion”… “red onion” is one thing so you should put a line break before the word “red” so it falls to the next line.

Similarly, in the entrees section “reduction” falls to its own line.  Try a line break after “strip” so that “with roasted tomato veal reduction” gets its own line.

I’d also put “and a sherry mustard vinaigrette” on one line.

Your menu looks great!  Laughing
