    Colored-coded place cards seem reasonable to me.  The waiting staff can be informed that “red is beef, blue is chicken, green is gluten free, and purple is kids” or something like that.  Guests wont’ need the explanation.

    We made place cards for each guest that assigned them to a table (but allowed them to choose their own seat once they got there) and indicated their meal choice (pre-selected on the R.s.v.p.) The venue wanted us to make sure the place card showed meal choice, to make it easier for the servers. It seems like extra work and extra pieces of paper to do a separate meal ticket?

    For reference, ours looked something like this:

    Mr. John Smith

    Please find a seat at Table 10

    CH

     

    Mrs. Jane Doe

    Please find a seat at Table 15

    VL

     

    (CH = chicken, VL = veggie lasagna, KM = kid’s meal, etc.)

    Rather than attaching tickets, you could add a colored craft jewel, or gem sticker

     

    or use a rubber stamp.

    @josiek1988:  do yourself a favour and make it as easy as possible.  make individual place cards for each guest and indicate on it which meal they want. 

    i put a little cut out flower in the corner in different colours: pink = beef, black = chicken, etc.  the venue found this to be the most convenient.

    also, on your invites, allow enough space on the rsvps for each guest to indicate which meal they want not just mr & mrs smith – 1 beef, 1 chicken.  you need mr bob smith – beef, mrs jane smith – chicken.  this way, you won’t have any confusion as to who is getting what.
