Not a huge deal and this is just my personal preferance, you don’t need to include the price of the hotel room. I would also just say June 8th and 9th instead of Friday and Saturday.

@Mulan05:  I asked guests to initial, NO ONE FREAKIN INITIALED!!!

Do you want to include a ‘____ seats have been reserved in your honor’ part?

Also space between ‘requested’ and ‘on’

I don’t think you NEED to put the cost of the hotel, I put that on my website, but not the accomodations card.

I would JUST do vegetarian meal option as you have it.

I agree with all the previous suggestions.

“Accommodations” is spelled wrong but I’m sure that is just a typo!

Can you specify what the vegetarian option will be? “Vegetarian” could mean a whole range of things… I’d just list it as “asparagus risotto (vegetarian)” or whatever it is. And I would definitely keep it listed on the card. I am not a vegetarian & therefore would not specify any “dietary requirements,” but I often prefer the vegetarian option.

I also asked my guests to initial their entree selection and I’d say about half did.  That was frustrating but I didn’t see any other way around it.  If I got one chicken, one beef, I just guessed and figured the couple could sort it out at the table.  No one complained.  I just didn’t want to have to call guests that didn’t initial entrees to ask.  I had too many other things to do in the days leading up to the wedding.

Otherwise, the rest of the wording sounds great.  If you are not doing a website, I’d include the price of the hotel.  Some guests are not into wedding websites, so they may appreciate knowing what the price per night at the blocked hotel is and may choose to find another hotel nearby for a cheaper rate.

As one with food allergies, the ‘allergy/dietary restrictions’ space is nice!  And I know my friends who keep Kosher and fellow allergy sufferers appreciate it too 🙂

Also, if you’re not specifying the chicken or salmon dish, no need to specify the vegetarian option.  However, if you put something like ‘Braised chicken with red wine sauce’, then the veg option should be specific too.
