So I have an appointment to pick out the food for my reception and I was talking to my wedding planner and it hits me; my guests have a choice for their food and I didn’t put it on the RSVP card! What do I do now? The RSVP cards are already made, the invitations aren’t sealed, but they’re together. Should I get a small business card size paper and put the choice on there? Or isn’t it a big deal and I can just pick one and everyone has to deal with it?

I would at least try to give them a choice. Maybe fix a business card or something to be back of the RSVP or paperlip them with some super cute clips so the guests dont forget it. Also, if you do inclued a second little card for dinner choice, make sure you know whos is whos and dont get them mixed up. Number them or something clever so you know which meal card goes with the RSVP.

Ask your venue. I did famly style, so I didn’t need people’s meal choices. Perhaps your venue can just assume it will be about 50/50. Although if you have people who are vegetarian or have food allergies, you’ll need to know that.

Are your RSVPs with envelopes or are they postcards?
If they’re with envelopes, I would go buy the business card perforated paper, print out the choices with checkboxes under/above and tell them to stick it in the envelope. Or if you have time (not sure), maybe make moo cards with each option as the picture, then they include whichever they want with the rsvp? Like say there’s chicken and beef. Both guests on the invite want beef so they write the number 2 on the back of the moo card and put it in the RSVP, that would be cute and guests would never suspect you “left it off”!
Or, put it on your wedding website/put on the card to enter it on your wedding website? You may have to call some people who aren’t as internet savvy.

If it’s plated then yeah, I’d attach a little something in there to give them a choice. Or maybe call around to a few people to get a general idea of the distribution if you’re doing it family style/ buffet style.

Do you have a website? Not sure how many invites you have, but you could write on the bottom of the RSVPs – ‘choose your entre at our wedding website’

Thanks for all the input guys! I think I’m just going to try to throw some business cards together fast, the invites are going out in the next week!

The small card idea is a great one!! You definitely need to give them a choice 🙂
Thank goodness you caught this!

There are several ways to handle this:
– have a duel plated entre (a little beef and a little seafood on the plate)
– serve family style
– have a buffet
– insert a card in the RSVP card
