The details of the wedding menu card will depend on the menu selection of the couple and the food offerings or packages of the wedding catering supplier. The food items in the wedding menu card are divided in the meal courses that are as follows:
The first course being served are usually greens, nuts, or those food items that can somehow fill the guests up while waiting for the main dishes in the reception. It may be served in individual portions or it can be given in a big serving per table.
The second course consists of soup or anything heavier compared to the first course being served.
After these fillers have already been served, the entree will already be given. In some weddings, the entree is all the same. On others, there may be a selection of entrees where the guests may choose from. This is very essential especially if the guests are on a particular diet where some food items cannot be eaten.
The last course to be served is the dessert which can be fruit mixes, cakes, sweets, and other items that can tastefully finish the entire course.
The beverages may also be included including whether these drinks are unlimited or will be served one glass per invited guest.
Any of the meal courses may be replaced or deducted varying on the planned meal course of the particular wedding. Aside from our wedding menu card templates, you may also download our Wedding Card Template samples and Wedding Card Envelope Template samples.
