could you get a picture of a game-y looking animal with big horns?? haha. i would totally choose that. but i understand your worry with the fish. i would either spell out the entree (most RSVPs i’ve gotten have done this) or include a key somewhere to let them know what they’re ordering.

I would just write out each entree option instead of using icons…

I would go ahead and include a menu card that relates the detailed description of the entree to the icons.  Particularly with something like coconut crusted halibut.  I know that FI and I both would tend to go for the fish if just presented with an icon, but he turn it down if there was coconut involved (he swears he’s allergic, although I think he just doesn’t like coconut).  The fancier the preparation, the more likely that somebody is going to object, for one reason or another, and if people don’t understand what they’ve ordered until they are sitting at the table, you are likely to have issues with people trying to switch, or not being able to eat what they chose.

I think it sounds fantastic, myself.  I’ll have one of each!

If you have space on the RSVP cards, I’d recommend spelling out a short description of the main entree, with a blank line in front of it to write in the quantity.

Short & sweet like you did in your post… 

Please indicate your choice of entree:

 _____Caribou Wrapped in Bacon

_____Coconut-Crusted Halibut

I was wondering the same thing! I think I’ll take everyone’s suggestions and formally write out the 5 (eeek) options and then also use my corresponding stamp. This way hopefully when they get their placecards with the matching stamp at the wedding they will know what the stamp is supposed to signify 🙂

That coconut Halibut sounds fantastic btw!
