20 Unique Wedding Menu Ideas

Food is never far from my mind and a wedding is NO exception! Whether you are offering a lavish sit down dinner with multiple courses or a laid back buffet with lots of scrumptious choices, give your guests a preview of what's to come with a menu display! They are a simple yet essential addition to any reception table-setting.  Here are 20 fun and unique ways to display your menu...

Print your menu on a bag and fill it with a little appetizer

Make a menu poster to hang at your reception

Place a mini menu in a burlap bag that doubles as a placecard

Add some vintage style by framing your menu with an antique mirror

Another great paper bag menu filled with goodies

LOVE the idea of an illustrated menu...especially when it's for a cake bar!

A menu printed on chocolate....I have nothing else to say

Your menu can pull double duty with this napkin ring display

A playful twist on tradition with a pinwheel menu

Another large-scale display with the menu painted on wood

A fun DIY menu wheel

A classic menu cut to fit inside the placesetting

Hang your menu over the table for a layered runner look

I never get tired of chalkboard displays!

A large scale napkin "ring" menu paired with a great appetizer

Another easy DIY idea...print or stamp your menu on a paper doily

Thank your guests for attending and tell them your menu all in one glamorous display

Add your menu card to a great vintage book for a lovely table display

Make your own menu placemats with some paper and paint markers

Print your menu on pretty little vintage postcards

Paper Made it Pretty ~ Mint to Be

This super sweet wedding I spotted over on Style Me Pretty is full of wonderful paper details designed by the couple...who happen to be graphic designers:) From the tissue paper flowers to the paper streamer decor, the super simple details add huge impact to this beautiful affair. Oh and did I mention I LOVE this color scheme!? Light, airy, and perfectly paired aqua, mint green, and white.

You don't even miss the real thing with these beautiful tissue paper flower bouquets made by the bride!

I can't get enough of these bouquets! They are SO precious and a great budget friendly substitute for real flowers.

A simple honeycomb streamer ads just a punch of color to the cake stand.

More paper flowers! Big impact on a small budget!

The same honeycomb streamer from the cake stand is used as a fabulous backdrop for the head table. The couple also used the banner motif throughout their decor. This is a great way to create a cohesive, unified feel to your event.

The banner motif repeated as a simple cake topper.

Stickers were added to plain paper bags creating cute packaging for the couple's favors.

More stickers for great reception snack packaging.

The same color scheme and style was used on the ceremony fans. A stylish way to keep your guests cool and comfortable:)

Last but not least the great wedding invitations that started the whole color scheme and banner theme.
