I know that a couple bees in the past have done something on the the name cards that indicated what entree option that person has chosen. is there a way to do that?

Our venue requires us to have escort cards or place cards if our guests are selecting meals.  Have you asked your venue for guidance?

If everyone is eating the same meal except the vegetarians, can you just have the serving staff ask guests if they chose a vegetarian meal?

I would give your caterer a list of how many veggie meals are at each table.  Unless you have an extreme amount, since you are only serving one other entree Id say not to worry about it, if someone gets a dish they cant eat, they will say something (or say somethign before they sit down)

For my annual office dinner, we never have assigned seats but often have to choose meals in advance—they always give us placecards with stickers, and when we sit down we put them at our seat. The servers note how many of a color sticker are at each table and serve accordingly. They’ve done this at several different venues and it always seems to work fine—I imagine you could do the same thing at a wedding.
