the majority of people won't notice anyway. Only a few will appreciate the effort

a lot of girls on here are doing them because they like the look of the table setting with a card for each person...it's totally up to you....if you do it, it will give your guests a chance to see what's on the buffet before they get there.... :)

i thought about having them at the buffet table not at the place settings. similar to table number stands but at the food item like a label or title

Will the buffet already be set up when the reception starts? Our buffet will be set up after the guests arrive because the reception and "cocktail hour" are in the same location (so a menu would let them know what to expect later). But I'm still not doing a real "menu" for the meal - we're putting together a welcome note to be placed at each table thanking our guests for coming and letting them know the food/entertainment they can expect throughout the evening.

Our caterer is putting them at the buffet areas. I just don't want the hassle of doing them and using all the extra paper. I think at the buffet is sufficient. We're really trying to go as green as possible.

Are you talking about the Morning After Breakfast? We decided to make it really casual and let people serve themselves so no menus. Plus unless there is something that requires explaining, breakfast foods are usually a little more standardized versus dinner foods, you know? If you've seen one quiche you've seen them all!

We had a buffet also and put 1 menu per table.  It looked nice and I think they appreciated knowing what they were getting in line for beforehand.

no, we are having a morning wedding and a brunch buffet for our reception food. (menu in profile) the buffet will be set up during the ceremony so that as soon as its over, we will go into the reception and have food. during the eating we will have music played. no dancing or cocktail hour since it will only be 10 am. champagne mixers like mimosas, or a bellini

sounds cute! i would def do a menu and maybe frame it at the head of the buffet line? give guests something to look and read over (and decide what they want to eat) while they're waiting anxiously to serve their food!

We're having a buffet and I did DIY table numbers with the menu on the backside of the table number. i figured our table would be full of stuff so by combining the table number menu I saved space and I sure as heck wasn't going to make 1 menu per person...I'm kinda getting sloppy with the DIY projects now that I've done so many!
