@jessyrez:  Okay, so DH and I had duet plates at our wedding, and we ended up requesting special plates for some of our guests (it was an RSVP option for them), and our venue was okay with special orders for them. So we ended up with these options:

1) Duet Plate of steak/fish

2) Steak Only

3) Fish Only

4) Vegetarian/Vegan Plate

Have you tried asking your venue?  I mean, they must deal with food allergies / preferences often!

@jessyrez:  Yeah, if they give you a hard time, always state food allergies. It happens!  And yes, if someone doesn’t like steak, I consider it a food allergy! 😛 LOL

@jessyrez:  Are you sure you can’t give your guests choices?  I know only a few places that will let you choose during the event / the day of because it’s wasteful.  They have to prepare extras of everything so people can choose what they want and not run out.  However, most places will let you choose ahead of time if you can specify how many of each dish they should prepare…like instead of 100 chickens, you can order 60 chicken, 40 beef.  You should definitely clarify with your venue.
