The little “no’s” at the bottom are alittle confusing. I would just have a line to check off.

I definitely understand what you mean by the (medium,) and think it’s very considerate for your guests. Most venues and people just have the meat and due the high volume of meals cooked and served in a short amout of time, don’t offer a temperature choice. Alerting your guests to this beforehand is a nice gesture. 

 

You may want to consider moving the “Adult only reception” line to the bottom right side of the card. It will pop a little more. 

Also, you can get rid of “No.” if you want since you already state “Please indicate an entree for each guest,” filling in a number in the blank is already implied. May just make them a little more cleaner. 

they look great!

They look lovely – love the design and color combo!! Makes for an elegant invite!

If they were mine though, I would make the RSVP in larger font – kind of like an introduction to the card so to speak…and  I would put dietary restrictions under the menu  choice – that would make the selection of the menu look more appealing to fill out, put still keep the importance of the allergy factor. and then I  would also center “adult reception” on the bottom rather then on the left hand side – have you tried italizing it to see if it softens it a little?

But take it with a grain of salt – right now we are putting together 150 invites ourselves so we are in assembly line mode’ !

I agree, this is very considerate of you!  I’d say that 90% of the weddings I’ve been to have served beef done well, and I much prefer medium.  Very good idea!

Agree that you can get rid of the “No.” which would give more room for the “adult reception only” notation.  Up to you. 

I also really like your reply card design!  If you don’t mind my asking, did you use a template or DIY this?

Do you need to know which guest is getting which meal?  Because the way the card is set up right now, guests are just asked to indicate how many of each entree their party would like.

@diamond.bride:  I would say “Please initial each guest’s entree choice” or something like that, and take out the “No.” under each line.

Agree…I would ask guests to initial by their choice(s).  That way you can indicate on their escort cards (if you’re doing that) and help the servers out.

We put it as:

Please initial next to your meal choice:

______ Meal A

______ Meal B

______ Meal C

They do look beautiful though!

I’m confused, I didn’t know that the servers get  your list of guests, and know beforehand who ordered what…don’t they just use it as a general guide to know how much of each entree to prepare for, and they do get extra…like if some puts down beef and the day of switches to chicken, it’s fine…it’s not really set in stone.
