Do I need a menu for my wedding/event?

Do I need a menu for my wedding/event?

Have you ever been to a wedding or event that has a custom designed menu detailing just what type of food will be prepared? Maybe you are planning your own wedding or event and that extra detail is just what you need to convey to guest what’s on the menu. We have some unique menus in the pictures below to share this week. Depending on the event your menu should reflect the type of atmosphere and theme; for instance we have a Bar Mitzvah with an adult and kids menu catering to both groups. For weddings we’ve created everything from rich, elegance to fun, laid back designs setting the tone for our bride’s dinner.

Another great way to make it more charming for your guest is adding personalization making each menu unique to each guest. In our third picture down Shannon Simpson-Meron gave each guest a menu with his or her name on it. Our fourth picture down Mary Crafts-Homer brought a touch of elegance by adding Rick and Mary to the top of their menu. The bottom photo Rachel Siegel-Schapiro also personalized each menu with her guest’s name.

So whether you’ve already incorporated a menu into your event or you adding one as a last detail you can’t go wrong because it’s just one more way to personalize your special day!

Fun stuff for guest to do at your reception

Fun stuff for guest to do at your reception!

With all the different things that go into planning a wedding have you ever thought of what you can do to enhance your guest experience?  We have some fun ideas to entertain your guests and have them talking about your wedding for years to come.

 

The Crossword Puzzle:
This is so witty; that’s why it’s my first pick. This is sure to have your guest talking and enjoying some fun facts about the bride and groom.

group1The Story:
My second pick is “The Story”. This couple used the back of their menu to tell the story of how they met; their journey from beginning to the day he pop the question and she said “Yes”! If your guest didn’t know all the cute facts of how you fell in love they will now. What a great personal way to share your life with your loved ones.

The Cootie Catcher:
My third pick is “The Cootie Catcher”.  This reminded me of being a kid playing with my friends to see what our fortune would be. I love this one because who wouldn't want to pick it up and start playing with it immediately. It’s a great way for young and old to be entertained!

Utah Bride & Groom Magazine 2013 Issue

It is our honor to be featured in Utah Bride & Groom Magazine’s 2013 issue. We were thrilled to have two of our invitations featured on page 30 in the editorial segment “Personality Type - fun fonts for fashionable couples”, which features unique typesetting, font pairings and font selections. One of our contributions is this floral beauty from our bride, JanEllen Melchior. Utah Bride & Groom Magazine described the fonts we selected for JanEllen as “nostalgic yet modern”. Below is a glimpse of the rest of JanEllen’s beautiful invitations to show off how the whole set came together beautifully as a whole. 

We were also pleasantly surprised to see our plate wrap menu featured on page 50. The idea of having the menu work as a band that wraps over and around the dinner plate was born early in 2012 while collaborating with Jessica White Photography. Below is a look at the pieces we created for the gorgeous ombré styled inspiration shoot photographed by Jessica White. You can view more of the shoot at www.annelizabeth.com

The cover is a visual icon for the year and it’s worth mentioning the people who brought it together. Congratulations to Marcus Gardner for the wardrobe styling, Versa Artistry for hair and makeup, Honey of a Thousand Flowers for the beautiful bouquet, Alfred Sung, via Lily & Iris for the breathtaking dress, Caterina for the location, and Heather Nan for her gorgeous photography. Kudos on your fabulous work.
