@Mrsmoore116:  i would keep it simple.  it’s not necessary to decribe the meals.

is your venue going to need to know which guest is having which entree?  i made sure that i had a meal selection under each name so that i knew exactly who was receiving which meal.  it takes up more space on the rsvp but it was so worth it.  there was no guessing.

@Mrsmoore116:  We had detailed descriptions of each option on our wedding website.  Food is the most important part of our reception so details are important for us.

We have a vegan, vegetarian, and chicken option, and I decided on

___ Portobello mushroom with roasted vegetables (vegan)
___ Spinach rotolo (vegetarian)
___ Garlic-crusted chicken

I think it’s a bit more descriptive than most, but since we went with a vegan and vegetarian rather than two meat and one veggie option, I liked having some description of the different meals.

I like the descriptive wording, because I might normally go for chicken, but the salmon sounds even better. Plus for me food (and music) make the wedding, so it would make me really excited, like ‘going to eat some salmon and spinach’ whilst getting dressed doing a happy dance.

@gingerkitten:  Thanks 🙂 can’t take all the credit though, I did steal the idea from Mrs. Eagle’s invitations.
