1) We didn’t do a special thing for kids meals, because we don’t expect there to be that many kids. We put a kids’ line and then the adult options – when we get the RSVP back (or sooner), we’ll just call the parents and discuss it with them.

2) We used symbols for our beef, fish, and veggie dishes, so the symbols were pretty self-explanatory. But to give people more details about the entree choices, we made the RSVP a folded card, so one side was the RSVP and the other had the three symbols and the detailed name of the entree (like a ‘legend’). If you use the dinosaurs, you probably need to do something like that. I perforated it in the middle so that the menu detaches from the RSVP, so guests only send back the RSVP. Not sure if that makes sense! I was going to post pics of my invitations after people start receiving them. But if you want more info, just let me know!

Hmmm.  I would understand that the shark was fish, assume the t-rex would be meat, is the brontosaurus a vegetarian?  Everything I know about dinosaurs I learned from watching Jurassic Park.  Some people will get it and some will be mystified.  I would provide a key.

I do think the whole Museum of Natural History thing is wonderful, and I love the dinosaur theme.  (Although I have a funny picture in my head of your wedding as Night at the Museum.  If any of the security guards look like Ben Stiller I would run.)

Maybe instead of the T-Rex, brontosaurus, etc., you could do other types of prehistoric icons? Like a stereotypical "drumstick" for the meat option, a fish skeleton for the fish, and a fern-like plant for vegetarian? It would still look dinosaur-ish without being confusing.
