Making Meal Options Fun!

  |   By Laura K

So you're offering your guests options for their meal at your wedding and you need a way to find out what each person would like. There is the standard way of writing the choices as the words beef, chicken, vegetarian… OR you can do something fun like have little symbols representing each option. This has become a signature of mine and it always seems to get rave reviews!

Because you are sending out your invitations several months before the big day—you may not have the menu finalized. Using these symbols gives you some flexibility in making adjustments. For example, if you plan on having salmon, but it isn’t available you can then easily switch to a different fish dish without your guests’ even knowing there was a last minute change.

What is also great about this option is how you can translate it to the personalized place cards for the wedding. When having meal options many venues require you to identify the meal selection for each guest at their place setting. This ensures a smooth dinner service.
