I have a dilemma. We are having different meal options so I will have table cards with different colors so they know what to serve them. The question is on the RSVP people only checked the option so if a couple chose one of each one I don’t know who gets what. Do I just guess and assume they can switch plates if needed?

@Jenster: You probably should contact each couple where two different meal options were selected to inquire as to who ordered which meal.

I wouldn’t bother contacting them – my philosophy is that the bride has enough on her plate (hah, pun intended) so why add more to it. There’s a 50/50 chance of the right plates served, if not then yes they’ll switch or correct the servers when they come by, no big deal.

Yeah, I guessed as well.
My RSVP cards were so easy to fill out, they werent the typical kinds and I wrote out each persons name with the option to write ‘attending or not attending’ and their meal choice besides their name. People still just circled the meal choices they wanted instead of writing down which meal by each guest.
I couldnt be bothered to call each guest and ask so I just guessed – if I got it wrong, oh well they can either switch or eat it.

You could call them, which would be extra awesome of you, or you could guess <which wouldn’t be horrible.
Do you think any of the would make a big stink about it?

@Jenster: Let your guests order at the restaurant. That is what we are doing, no need for the color card dilemma.

@Jenster: Ok say a husband and wife RSVP, one steak one chicken, but don’t tell you who wanted what. You make one card yellow and one blue, for example. The servers usually go around and verify what each person wants anyway, and if the hubby is served hiw wife’s meal, they can switch. Don’t stress it, people will work that out themselves.

@Jenster: I’m having a buffet, but I attended a wedding with a plated meal with different options. Even though we marked our chocies on the card, servers came around and took our orders. So they knew how much to plan because of our cards, but then i guess they just had to trust that the guests wouldn’t change minds when we got there? We had a menu on our plate when we sat down so we were reminder what was for dinner. It worked out nicely.
