I think if a guest sends in their reply cards with their choice, they will know they don’t get to change their minds at the wedding.  or they should.  if not, they aren’t very smart ; )

This is an excellent question; I was wondering the same thing.  I love the idea of having menus (they look so nice tucked into a napkin)… but how to make them work when you have multiple entrees.  I never like to assume people remember.  I attended 8 weddings last summer and at one of them the waiters went around and asked what we had preordered… I couldn’t remember which it was!  Though Dreamy may be right, that may be the only way to do it.  Hmmm….

The last wedding I went to just listed all three entrees on the menu.  Our placecards had stamps designating what we had ordered so the waiters knew.  It worked out well.

I am planning on doing mine like this:

soup

salad

entree:

beef

or

fish

very simple…..and too bad for them if they changed their minds!  we are doing the stamp thing as well, so the waiters know.

I’m a wedding planner and instead of only having a menu card, I incorporate a short list of the reception events to create a Menu/Reception Program.  That way the guests knew what to expect next. Here’s what I created for my client:
