Let your guests know what culinary delights await them for dinner with a beautiful wedding menu.
Let's face it, nobody wants to be playing the 'what's for dinner' guessing game at any time, least of all at a wedding! Get them excited about your epic wedding feast with one of our beautiful menus. Here's a few reasons why an individual wedding menu is a great idea, and a few things to think about when ordering them.
Individual menus make it easy to see what's being served!
And it ain't just looks, honey. Guests will be able to really ogle your beautiful menus and find out what's coming up on the food front without having to wait their turn for a menu - there's nothing more awkward than sitting at a table of 8 or 10 strangers and playing the waiting game to get a squiz at that single lonely menu on the table.
Wedding menus are a wonderful way to add your wedding theme and style to your tables without too much effort.
They're both functional and beautiful - they'll get your wedding theme and design front and centre on your tables without taking up too much valuable wedding reception real estate. It's as simple as that!
A personalised wedding menu means you won't need placecards as well.
If you're looking to save your wedding budget for the finer things, think about printing your guest names directly on your menus! That way the individual menus double up as a place setting, keep the budget inline and you won't end up cluttering the reception tables.
Adding a guest name to an individual menu also means that it's easier for wedding guests to find their spot.
One of the most important things at the start of your wedding reception is getting your loved ones through the doors and to their spots as quickly as possible so the fun can begin. By adding personalised menus to your order along with one of our fabulous matching seating plans, you'll get your nearest and dearest seated, drooling over your wedding menu, and celebrating with you in no time at all.
Want to include the drink list as well? Consider adding double-sided printing.
By adding double sided printing so you can include the beverages on offer on your wedding menu, you then don't have to worry about organising bar signs or separate drinks lists - it's all on the one card, which is great for both the budget and the styling of your wedding. You won't have to worry about stands, space to put the signs, extra decorations - it's all in one and easy for your guests to find.
When writing your wedding menu wording, don't be scared to pare it back.
Or, you can ask us to! While there's a lot of space on our wedding menus, it's not infinite. So if your venue has given you paragraph long descriptions on the meal, consider breaking it down to the core components.
Something like "Freshly made semolina gnocchi with a rosemary, slow-roasted garlic sauce, traditional roasted chicken and locally made sundried tomatoes, entirely dairy free" would then be "Gnocchi, chicken, sundried tomatoes, rosemary & garlic sauce (DF)" - which is short, sweet, and still includes all the necessary info! And if you're not confident on paring it back yourself, just let us know you need us to trim the fat and we'll work our magic.
The same rule applies to beverages, if you're including them on the menu.
All you need to include is the name of the brand, brewery or vineyard, the name of the beverage or type; you don't necessarily need to include the location it's made in or the particular vintner that made it.
For example, if you've got yourself a fancy little "Los Vasco Cromas Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 Gran Reserva, Maximiliano Correa, Chile", you can take that down to "Los Vasco Cromas Cabernet Sauvignon 2018" - your fantastic waitstaff and barstaff will be more than happy to give the finer details and flavour profiles to any guests that ask!

We loved the design options with Paper & Ink Studio and their reasonable prices were also a positive. Communication was fast and friendly, we were given multiple opportunities to make changes and really happy with the final finished product. The free magnets and stickers with our initials for our invites were a nice touch too. Would definitely recommend!
Lala and her team were amazing to deal with. I opted to phone to talk through my options and was fortunate to have Lala answer and guide me through the entire ordering process. She was helpful, understanding and lovely to deal with. We ordered invites, finer details cards, envelopes and she assisted us to order personalised stamps which completed the invites beautifully. I later ordered some on the day stationary. Everything arrived quickly, shipped over to Sydney and looked better than wed hoped for. We had so many compliments. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them . Thank you xx Lisa and Sam

This planner is amazing, there are so many aspects I had never even thought of when planning a wedding. My finance and I were both overwhelmed by how little we knew! This planner covers everything, the layout with tabs is perfect, cute little prompts and a bit of light hearted fun definitely make the process less daunting. The customer service team are awesome too, there was a minor issue that they rectified immediately. Will be back again for all the stationery in the future!
I love this planner organiser. So many handy tips and things I had not thought about and the personalised cover title is adorable.
Absolutely loved this sample pack! Was filled with so many different styles and options from save the dates to invites and RSVP cards etc. Made choosing our save the dates so much easier knowing how'd they'd look when they're printed! Will definitely be referencing back to it for our invites and RSVPs 🥰
Simply gorgeous! I can't wait to give my dad this card. Just as described and pictured and of very high quality. Thank you!
