(Closed) How does your venue/caterer handle matching the entree selection to the person?

I wrestled with this for a while. There are some very well-designed RSVPs out there, but I didn’t want our RSVP cards to feel like a form. We’re seeing how it goes, but I know that some people are bound to do this. I asked for their email address on the RSVP, so hopefully we can just shoot them a quick email if we need to. I guess after thinking about it long and hard, I preferred the basic RSVP and sending a follow-up email vs. a questionnaire RSVP that people wouldn’t even take the time to fill out.

haha, some of these RSVPs I’ve seen are more complicated than a tax return, that’s all! =)

We just asked our guests to indicate the meal preference for each guest and then because my brother’s girlfriend did the invites and such for us, we customized the number of spaces for names and options to the number on the invite so that it didn’t look too much like a list.

Our caterer explained that this way things flow more smoothly without the waitstaff having to ask each guest what they said they wanted on the RSVP months ago 🙂

I opted for an RSVP card like Mrs Lemon’s – I felt it was concise, yet informative (thanks Mrs. Lemon!).

akimbo,

On our RSVP cards, we have:

Mr./Ms.___________ (and then boxes to check for meal choice)

Mr./Ms.___________ (etc.)

 

At the reception, my placecards will be color differentiated by a specific stamp that goes with my theme. Each different color will refer to a certain meal choice.
