Anyone else remembers getting excited about collecting the Bengali wedding menu card from a biye baeri as a hobby? Well I still have my collection stashed in a bag somewhere. Over the years the designs have changed a lot, from simple cards to pens to some of the more outrageous options. ( Believe me when I say outrageous, I heard about someone who apparently got their menu printed in the form of Aadhar cards )
Getting menu cards for your wedding is not just to announce your menu for the night in a fun way but also a chance for you to take your wedding theme forward. Given below are a few ideas we have for you. –

6. Add a little bit of flora and fauna to your card ( Well not fauna but you get it )
I take back when I said nothing can be chicer than this, turns out you can make wax seals look even better by adding dried leaves, petals or tiny twigs to it. It makes the entire setting look so much more aesthetic.

Wedding Menu Card FAQ:
Should I print menu cards for everyone or have one per table?
This one’s quite simple. If you’re planning on having paper cards, it is better to print one for every guest who sits at the table. But if you’re going for something more solid like wooden boards or blackboards then one per table will suffice.
Should I use individual menu cards if we’re serving a buffet or family-style meal?
Menus are essential for family-style meals, for buffet dinners instead I’d suggest large wooden board or chalkboard menus around the place.
What kind of information should I include on my menu cards?
Include the dishes you’ll be serving for the night and their ingredients to help people out with allergies.
