Download the editable template to create your own menu and just fill it in with the courses you plan to serve at your reception. Print it on ivory card stock (one letter-size sheet yields two menus), and trim the cards to size using a ruler and craft knife for a precise cut.

Note: Use an ink-jet printer when working with card stock; for projects using regular paper stock, both ink-jet and laser printers will do the job equally well.

I used this menu for my bridal brunch the morning of my wedding. At first I had trouble typing in the menu items - and they were in a really ugly font. (I have a Mac by the way) What I did was save the document to my computer then open it in "Preview"... Then I was able to copy the menu and paste it into a word document. From there I could add a text box and make the font any style, color, or size I wanted with unlimited text space. Since I was in word, it printed easily just like any other doc.

Hi BenandEmily, you are probably on your 3rd anniversary now :). I was just wondering how you actually "copied" the menus into Word; did you take a snapshot of it (as a photo) or a different way? I also have a Mac, but I am concerned about the resolution when I print it... Thanks!

Its so frustrating reading all these comments saying the same thing with no solution. Martha Stewart, you loser, dont advertise free editable templates if you cant deliver. You of all people should know thats fraudulent.

I used that template for my wedding and It was perfect. Actually my husband made some little changes with Illustrator (change of colours to suit our wedding palette etc..). We used it as name cards, luminions, menus, etc. It was really nice and elegant

I have spent over a half hour trying to print a menu. This is impossible! The Printable Directions do not clearly explain how to use the template. When I type a menu item and press enter the previous typing disappears. I wonder if the powers that be ever read the comments and correct the problem. Neverland

This form is absolutely ridiculous. Why do they offer a template with limited wording allowed? Really an average of 4-5 works on each line? IF you really want to help us brides, change forms like this because I've wasted my time trying to figure this out! Thanks but No thanks!

Hi Lizz! Right click on PDF image and select n n n n n n copy imagen n n n n n . Paste on a New WORD document. Fix the image so it is at your desired size. Click on menu image (highlight image). Then, right click on it, choose n n n n n n format picturen n n n n n , click on layout tab, choose n n n n n n behind textn n n n n n and choose there, in the same box, whichever alignment you want. This will allow you to write on top of the menu. Play with the formatting and the colors, but you should be able to find a very similar color. Keep me posted!

You can change the colors a little bit in word if you copy and paste it in, like a picture. At our wedding, we are actually not having menus but i used this frame for reserved signs for tables and chairs. Also done in word processor. You can flip it, change the size, stretch it and like i siad chenge the colors some.

If you are having trouble the limited space available for menu items, look to the far right of the tool bar There is a gray button directly to the left of the film strip button. Click the arrow to drop down the menu and select Text Field Tool This will display the boxes that indicate where you can type If you double click on the boxes a Text Field Properties box will appear Select the Options tab, un-check the Scroll Long Text box and check the Multi-Line box. Now adjust the size of the box to allow room for all the text To hide the boxes and continue typing look to the far left of the tool bar and click select text Located to the left of the hand

This is completely off topic, but I absolutely adore the china featured in this photo and was curious if anyone new: a) who makes it and b) what the name of the pattern is? Random, I know, but I love it!! Thanks :)

Having trouble getting menu items with two lines in. If you move to the next space it's two far apart. Also removing items or deleting text seems to be an issue as well. Any help would be appreciated

FYI - I use Adobe 6.0....an older reader but I can open these files. Make sure you hit the "Select Tool" button on the toolbar not the "Hand Tool" button above the menu template. Hit "Tab" key on keyboard to move your text to the next line. As for the long menu item to type..this might only have a limited amount of space and not using a single space format. That is why you can't see it and the "X" appears. You may have to type it on the next line even though the space is there. Good luck! :)

When you're typing in the template, how do you get your text to go to the next line? I keep getting that plus sign when I type something really long and I can't get my text to extend to the next line. Anyone know how?

Only way I know to change color: If you have PhotoShop Elements (PSE), save the pdf file to your hard drive. Open it in PSE. Press Ctrl U or Enhance/Adjust Color/Adjust Hue/Saturation. Click the Colorize box, then move the Hue, Saturation and Lightness sliders to achieve the color you want. Good luck!

Hmmm...you should be able to type directly in the menu pdf. Perhaps you don't have the most recent version of acrobat?

We actually revamped these to be our wedding invitations. We took out the "menu" and replaced it with all of our info in the center. :) It's looks sooooo good, and it's only going to cost us a couple hundred, vs. several thousand for a letterpress version!

When I open the menus they come up as a .pdf which I cannot save and edit? What do I do so that I can save it as an editable file?

Ditto on the Teal color comment below for the menus, like the place cards. I would love to use that instead of the Orange. Thank you!
