Elegant Wedding Menus

We are so lucky in California’s wine country. Local, seasonal, fresh are absolutely normal adjectives that are the norm for fine dining. Thankfully, today more farms inspire top caterers — for menus that everyone can eat.

In autumn, seasonal fare is bountiful — squash soups, slow roasted meats, deep colored vegetables, As you work with your caterer to refine your menu, of course your tastes come first.  Martha Stewart shares tips for planning a wedding menu — The Kitchn reminds us that it can be trickier than we might expect.

Stumped on how to tell your guests what they’re eating? These menus would be lovely in any wine country wedding, no matter the cuisine.

Of course, we here at Monogamy adore this menu from a backyard wedding in Wisconsin. It’s printed on a wine label! We love this brilliant way to save precious table space, and create conversation. Photography from Hitch and Sparrow.

From Snippet and Ink, we discovered that hanging your menu from a vintage cutting board is the perfect way to let your guests know what’s for dinner.
