What they are – These can be included as inserts in your invitation if you need guests to choose their meal ahead of time. They can also be placed at each place setting.
Do you need them? – If you are having a sit down dinner these can be very useful. They help your wait staff quickly take your guests’ orders without having to recite all of the choices to each guest. This helps ensure all your guests are served in a timely manner and no one is waiting to eat.
Other Tips – To save on costs, consider having a large menu card printed and mounted or framed for each table. Printed and displayed correctly, these can be a nice addition to your centerpieces and will probably be cheaper than providing each guest with a printed menu.
