My favorite part about offbeat brides is how you all can take any mundane wedding accoutrement and turn it into something fresh and awesome. Take menus, for example. Menus are generally boring-but-necessary if you're having a sit down dinner with several meal options… but not for offbeat brides! Here are some great ways our readers have gotten creative with wedding menus…
Tribe member Channamasala created full-on fancy menus herself, made from cardstock, Chinese double happiness stickers and Nepalese paper. Because she used differently colored and patterned papers, each one looked slightly different.
Tribe member 2dBride created these nifty menu lanterns using a tutorial that she found over here. She also used this same menu technique for the bar menu and the dessert menu as well. Plus they double as awesome decor.
Table number menus
Kristen did a pretty nifty thing. She combined her table numbers with the menu, making sure to use 100% post-consumer handmade paper at her green wedding.
I once attended a wedding where the menu was molded out of chocolate! To this day, I don't remember whose wedding it was, but I still remember that the menu was delicious! They're certainly not budget-friendly, but they can do double duty as your wedding favors.
If you have any other creative menu ideas, we'd love to hear 'em. And if you have any chocolate menus, I'd love to try them.
