The venue gives us two meal options as part of our package – two meals we got to try ahead of time. They do allow us to choose a vegetarian option for those who are vegetarian, as well has gluten free options, etc.
Now, on the invitation, must I include the option for vegetarian? If I give the options of chicken, beef or a child’s plate and have in brackets (Please note dietary restrictions) is that good enough? If unsure, vegetarians would ask if a vegetarian option is provided? (RSVP is by email).

We put the general meal choices (beef and chicken) and then a line that just asked people to note and allergies. That worked perfectly fine for us.

We asked people to pick beef, chicken, or vegetarian. We also told them to tell us if they’re bringing children so we could provide an adequate number of kid’s meals. Finally, we left a blank space asking them to detail any dietary restrictions so they can list things like “allergic to pine nuts.” I think it’s important to list vegetarian as a separate option to avoid confusion.

I guess the way I see it, is being vegetarian would be a dietary restriction. So I’m thinking that line should be enough? I didn’t get to try the vegetarian option (just wasn’t an option as we went with two meat dishes) so I would rather people choose either chicken or beef and order the vegetarian only if they are vegetarian… make sense? I feel like if it’s an option on it’s own more people would be inclined to choose it, even if they don’t eat meat. I don’t know much more about the dish other than it’s a pasta with a tomato sauce.
