So apparently this idea is not new, but its to us it is! One of our recent brides saw something like this somewhere and we achieved it according to her design style and color scheme...Custom menus with individual guest names at for each seat. LOVE! Each menu was actually customized according to the food choice selected by each guest (beef, chicken, veggie - and even a small chick for the kid's chicken fingers). This design takes a bit of time to set up (which equates to more design cost) but it saves on paper and printing as we combine the menu with the place card for duo purpose. You can do this without customizing the actual menu for each guest and save cost too.
I was just at a photo shoot this morning and was chatting with an event planner about how amazing and over-the-top weddings are now compared to when we got married a decade ago. I must admit, I wish I had all these services and paper products available to me when I got married! Thanks for sharing all your new ideas with us - we love making your ideas come to life and offering you unbeatable service and creativity!
