By the time your big day arrives, you’ll have designed your reception decor to the tiniest detail (or enlisted the help of a wedding planner to do so!) and, not only will you have meticulously planned and replanned your seating plan, you’ll also have made it look beautiful. Do the same for your wedding menu – you chose the dishes oh so carefully, so celebrate them with winning wedding menu designs! They’re going to take pride of place on your tables, making it just as important that they’re a treat for your guest’s eyes as well as their taste buds.
Here are ten of our favourite wedding menu designs to whet your appetite and get your reception looking delicious!
This natural watercolour design is rich in hues of deep blue through to grey. Sitting opposite orange on the colour spectrum, blue is the perfect pairing for this golden baguette, which continues the rustic, organic table styling.
Gorgeous greys are both timeless and trendy. We love the way the scripted font and sketch on this wedding menu design echo the rustic, autumnal styling of the table with green foliage, ivory roses and miniature apples.
Your menu is a feast fit for a king (or queen!), so why not make it a centrepiece as well as the food? Many wedding menu designs would hang nicely from an archway, giving your decadent dinner all the drama it deserves.
Pay attention to the details if you want to really nail your chosen wedding theme. The bamboo ladder evokes warmer climes and is a marriage made in heaven for this internationally-inspired menu!
For classic country style, crates and upcycled wooden pallets are the way forwards. Spend an afternoon doing some big day DIY, adding all your menu details, and use chalk paint if you want a look that is more shabby chic than sparkling new.
A surefire way to ensure your wedding menu designs sit prettily beside your reception table decor is to follow one detail throughout the entire scheme. Here, olive leaves run through the foliage and menu, even featuring the same green shade in the ribbon, for a romantically Mediterranean overall effect.
These wedding menu designs feature sketches of the wedding venue on them – a beautiful bespoke option that oozes class. Keeping the design monochrome will avoid it looking too busy or clashing with the rest of your reception table decor.
No wedding menu designs roundup would be complete without the obligatory chalkboard. Hugely popular as a hired, bought or homemade option for rustic, contemporary and country house weddings alike, chalkboards are a charming and versatile way to display your dining options to your guests in some serious style. Coordinate your chalk colour and typography style to suit your venue.
