@kat912:  Beef is typically offered as well as chicken. If you want to keep it simple, I’d just pick three choices – beef, chicken, vegetarian.

Oh crap, the kid’s meal.


Ok, beef, chicken, kids meal. Let the vegetarian’s write it in. I’m sure you’ll accomodate them. I have the same issue as you. Does it really need to be a tri-fold rsvp? Sometimes it seems like that’s the only solution. Goodness!

I think it depends on what your families like.  My family are really into fish, and his family is as well (a bunch of them are really into fishing), so we are having chicken and fish as the options.  I don’t think you need a kids meal option on the card.  You can just give everyone 12 and under a kids meal.  Growing up, my kid sister always just received a kids meal without requesting at weddings and usually she was really excited to receive one (food she liked better, sometimes something special like her own bottle of ketchup, or a build your own pizza that was fun for kids). I would pick two meat options and vegetarian.

As far as beef, all I ever see on Four weddings is people complain that it is never cooked to their liking.  Too well done, too rare, too salty, too dry.  It seems like no one is ever happy with the beef. We decided to avoid that scenario.  Chicken, shrimp and vegetarian.  We are also providing one vegan meal.
