In one big effort, thanks to some help from a few faithful friends, we managed to finish our menu/programmes in 2 nights (it took 2 because we ran out of ink on the first night, which is pretty impressive on the whole, I think).
With a ceremony to be held in the middle of our reception venue, we decided to combine the menu and programme into one package of information. Only vital information was included, as at this stage we didn’t want to have to go and buy more paper. The end result is small and sweet and should fit nicely on a napkin. Each card is slightly smaller than the next so that it reads like an index. Also, in case you should ask, “program” is commonly spelled “programme” here in South Africa, and we thought it suited the set better.
(if you have a read through the menu you will see the very delicious Medallion of Beef with Chili-Chocolate. This will be my meal of choice and I highly recommend it if you haven’t tried it before – I promise it is quite a remarkable combination)
In addition to the menu/programme, we made our photobooth tickets. Opting for vellum paper for this project, the final product was very pleasing and if we have more time we’d like to make some to put in a jar alongside the booth (for effect, of course).
What are you looking forward to eating most at your reception?
