When it comes to the big day, the needs can vary from reception to reception based on whether the event is sit down or cocktail style.
If its cocktail style and everyone is roaming, you might opt for a sign that lists menu items or what drinks are included (see signage next).
If its sit down, that’s completely different. The last thing you want is that relative you were obligated to invite coming up to you and asking about the menu or where they sit. Place cards and menus at each setting are a must!
Menu’s, designed and printed for your special day, will cost you between $4-10 each, depending on what it is created with (Paper is cheaper, acrylic not so much). You can also opt to have only a few menu’s at each table so it encourages mingling amongst the table.
Placecards can be created in a range of ways, be it custom cut wood or acrylic, hand-lettered on cardstock or simply printed in the theme of the day. These can cost between $3-$7 a piece, but perhaps consider that this is a piece your guest will keep as a momento, you could even work it in to your wedding favors.
