A delectable menu can be key to entertaining your wedding attendees—good food makes for happy guests! We know a lot of time and thought goes into your menu choices, whether you opt for a traditional and elegant plated dinner or casually fun mac-n-cheese cones. After all that consideration, you won’t want to forget a special detail that highlights your food selections: the menu display! Clue guests in about what they can expect for dinner (… or lunch, or a late-night snack) with a menu perfectly suited to your personality. In today’s wedding world, there’s no reason your menu can’t be a swoon-worthy detail piece for guests to love at your wedding. Take a look at a few of our favorite unique menu displays from our North Dallas wedding rentals collection:
Chalkboards: the ever-popular chalkboard option just keeps moving forward with industry trends! Our North Dallas wedding rentals collection is stocked with chalkboard pieces big and small. Whether you have your calligrapher letter the full menu on a display board near the reception entrance, or decide on petite accents like this dessert menu, chalkboards are an easy (and beautiful!) way to display your menu.
Windows: Chalkboards aren’t the only surface you can use to display wedding lettering. Think of all the possibilities! Uncover a vintage window pane with tons of character, and write on each pane with menu options. You can hang these frames at the reception entrance, or near a buffet so guests can view the upcoming selections as they move through the line.
Mirrors: Another favorite surface! You get the idea… these days, talented letterers can work with almost any surface. Mirrors are a versatile option, because you can select a piece that speaks to you. Perhaps your traditional wedding is best suited by an elegant gold-framed antique mirror; on the other hand, maybe your barn wedding requires a rustic frame. Again, mirror menus can be placed near the entrance to the reception, near a buffet, or even as accept pieces on cake tables, dessert bars, etc.
Frames: An elegant and easily customized choice, frames always make a lovely statement. You can mix and match frames that echo the same era or color scheme, or stock up on the same frame for a more uniform look. We think frames are perfect for highlighting the little details you’ve carefully selected for your guests: perhaps a special signature cocktail, or a late-night candy bar.
Plated Menu: for the traditional bride, a plated menu is always an elegant choice. Have your wedding invitation suite designer or calligrapher create a menu that is cohesive with your other printed elements. Place a menu at each setting. This option is a lovely formal way to list a full-course meal, or simply to make each guest feel a little extra appreciated. Plus, they look gorgeous in tablescape photography.
Get Creative! Your wedding is unique to you; there’s no reason the little details like your menu display shouldn’t be just as distinctive. Think about your theme and ways you can incorporate unique details into your displays. We love this idea of writing on a cutting board for a Tuscan feel! Not sure how to go about it? Just get in touch. Dreaming up special details is what we do best, and we’d love to find a one-of-a-kind item just for you.
