Pink & White Floral Monogram Menu Card

Menu cards are sometimes overlooked by brides on a budget but they’re actually an important element of the reception, and they don’t have to break the bank. In fact, they can even save you money in two ways: one card tucked neatly into a folded napkin at each person’s seat can double as a beautiful place card or even as a creative favor. Best of all, menu cards can be as striking as the fanciest of invitations, so use them to whet your guests’ appetites and make everyone feel like an honored dinner guest. We’ve got ideas for everything from cocktails to cake cards and the kids table, too. Let this gorgeous spring-inspired design from couture paperie Grapevine get your inspiration boards buzzing. —Stella Fiore
