So you’re planning a 6:00 pm reception in which you'll be serving dinner to your guests and some of those guests are limited by dietary restrictions. You know they'll want to triple check what's in each of your scrumptious entrees. But, you're also not too excited about dropping several hundred (or maybe thousands) of dollars for 200+ menus for each plate. 

Never fear - this is where a giant menu board comes in handy! Instead of adding to the cost of your wedding with individual menus, prop a menu board up in your reception that’s easy for all of your guests to see! You can purchase printable ones too at a very affordable price. All you'd need to do is set it up on an easel or in a frame and ta-da! You've got a gorgeous solution for your budget and guests. 

I found a few fantastic ones on Etsy below. Click below to shop if you’re in the market!

I love this pretty little printable! Using "feast" instead of "menu" is a nice touch, too. This would be perfect for a modern, boho wedding.

 FLORAL WEDDING MENU
