I’d put as much info as possible because someone may love london broil, but not mushrooms and so would choose salmon if they knew about the mushrooms.  I’m doiing personalized menus, but only because they’re doubling as place cards, otherwise I’d probably forego them entirely.

If you have space on your response card, I’d spell out the entrees.  They sound much more appetizing with the full description rather than just "chicken, fish or beef".  Makes you think of airplane food!

spell it out if you can!  I would never choose fish if it just said fish because I don’t like Salmon  – so the more detailed version helps picky people like me choose 🙂

Spelling it out also helps people with food allergies – my dad would be all for the beef option, but he’s allergic to mushrooms so he wouldn’t be able to eat the London Broil with Mushrooms.

People will probably forget what they ordered, so if you want to remind them about the details, it is a nice touch – but probably not necessary.

I originally planned on NOT including menu cards.  But we took so much care in picking out the different dishes and our caterer is a very-well known commodity, we decided last minute to print out menu cards so our guests would know exactly what they were being served.

It’s a nice touch, but not neccesary if you have too many other things going on.  If you decide to do it, I’d spell out all the courses like salad, etc. and not just the three main choices.

If you put those choices on the RSVP card, just be careful, what if your caterer has to substitute a side come your wedding day? The chances of this happening are slim, but if someone picks something specifically because of one of those sides, and then they don’t get it, that could be disappointing, but I agree it sounds better with more info. =)

For the RSVP I simply put chicken, beef, vegetarian — at the wedding I will print up a menu with all three of the items listed in detail, along with the salad, drink choices, and sweet table options.
