Most people may not notice it but printed menus help complete any wedding reception’s table setting. And in this article, we break down the steps on how you can create impactful wedding menu designs. Multiple examples of downloadable wedding menu templates are also curated below.
A good wedding menu is one that is both informative and visually appealing. Its design should reinforce the wedding motif to make the event more memorable.
First off, you need to be clear on what your wedding motif is. It’s important that your wedding menu design matches your wedding motif and decor. To illustrate, if you are planning for a summer wedding, it is best to create a tropical wedding menu.
Next, create a list of all the different food courses that will be served during the wedding reception. Also, decide on how much information about each course you want to write down on your wedding menu.
Afterward, choose and download a printable wedding menu template. By using these pre-made templates, you do not have to decide on the menu layout, content, and overall design. You just have to replace the template’s built-in placeholders with your own content.
After proofreading and saving the final template file, you should begin the printing process. To get better prints, you may have the menu template printed at your local print shop. Make sure to use cardstock with a high GSM number as they are thicker and sturdier. You may also incorporate more advanced printing techniques to match all your other wedding stationery designs.
Once you printed, make sure that your wedding menus are placed strategically as part of your wedding tablescape. Most of the time, classic wedding menus are placed on top of the silverware. But, you may always come up with different arrangements based on the existing wedding decorations.
