We are having a buffet style reception. After looking at a few posts from other bees I’ve noticed that a lot of ladies do menus for buffet style dinners. Do you think they are necessary or just something nice to have? I have a few vegitarian relatives and diabetics so I’m not sure if I should have one for them to look over so that they can plan what they want to have before heading up to the table.

Definitely not necessary. I’d actually ever actually seen a menu for a buffet, but at my own wedding, I was like… I’m a picky eater, and I would love it if there was a menu at my table so I’d know before I got to the lineup NOT to fill my plate with salad (my usual safe item) because there’s something delicious further down the line!

@FloretteLiz: We’re also having abuffet and the thought had crossed my mind to provide menus. But, we have 35 guest tables, so one for each table is definitely out. Too much hassle, money and time to get into that.
Maybe if you were having something that wasn’t the “norm” and people might not be able to identify by sight what’s it is or what’s in it… Maybe you could make signs to place in front of each individual entree.
I’ve been to weddings and seen some brides provide menus, others not. I don’t think it’s a must, but if you feel up to it, why not?

Thanks ladies. I’ve never seen one at a wedding that I’ve been to so I was completely thrown off when I saw some ladies doing it here. I think I might just skip it. Maybe I’ll think it’s more necessary down the road. Maybe I’m just itching for a new DIY project lol

Why just not have one per table, like a really pretty one! You can place it on one of those clips that you can place directly on the table or on the centerpiece …
If you have one menu, people tend to look at it together and can get the conversation started. 😀
Just a thought? 🙂
