Types of menus differ in a lot of ways, the way you display them to the way you design them. Some types are:

Customized Menus – One of the simplest yet effective ways to present your wedding menu is by designing custom menus that match your wedding theme and personal decor. Consider incorporating your wedding colors, motifs, or even monograms into the menu design. You can print individual menus for each guest or display a large, beautifully framed menu at the entrance of the reception area for everyone to see.

Interactive Displays – Engage your guests with interactive displays that allow them to explore and choose their desired menu items. Create a visually stunning wall or board with different food options and accompanying descriptions. Using decorative pins or magnets, guests can select their preferences. This adds an element of fun and encourages conversation among guests as they discuss their choices.

Tabletop Displays – Incorporate your menu into the table setting by using unique presentation methods. Place individual menus inside elegantly folded napkins or attach them to creatively designed place cards. You can also consider using edible menus, such as personalized cookies or chocolate bars with the menu details engraved on them. These edible delights not only serve as a delightful surprise but also act as a sweet treat for your guests.

Interactive Digital Menus – Embrace technology and create a digital menu experience for your guests. Set up interactive screens or tablets at each table, allowing guests to browse through the menu options, view food photos, and even read chef’s recommendations. This approach adds a modern touch to your wedding while providing an immersive and personalized dining experience.

Multi-course Surprise – If you want to add an element of surprise to your wedding menu, consider presenting each course in a unique and unexpected way. For example, you can serve an amuse-bouche as a pre-course palate cleanser in small, decorative shot glasses. Another idea is to serve a signature cocktail as an intermezzo between courses, refreshing the guests’ palates and enhancing the overall dining experience.

Themed Food Stations – Create a culinary journey for your guests by setting up themed food stations that reflect your favorite cuisines or destinations. Use decorative signs and props to indicate the different stations, and include small menu cards at each station describing the dishes and their ingredients. This interactive approach allows guests to explore various flavors while immersing themselves in the ambiance of each culinary experience.

Your wedding menu is an opportunity to showcase your personal style as a couple and give people some insight into who you will be as a married couple…it will surely delight your guests and make for a memorable dining experience. As we love seeing people entry their married life together, we have seen a lot of personal styles coming together which makes it so much more special seeing it come to life. Dubrovnik gives that special “umf” to your style, the tradition and pure natural beauty makes everything shine better.

That’s it for now dear reader… cheers to love!
