Four months out is beyond early.  I would do a STD now, or even just casually ask around as to who is seriously considering coming from oot, and do the actual invite on a normal schedule.

We are sending out our invites pretty early too and I just included a “Dietary concerns” line at the bottom of our RSVP cards and I am hoping that will make things easier, although I probably will end up with more headaches in the end.

I would use the generics.

Nope, we are doing a full sit down meal. We are contacting everyone about a month before the wedding to confirm that they are coming 70% of our guests are Out of Town so we will be confirming their menu choice then. We are also putting the menu choices on our wedding website. We are lucky though that our guests aren’t (for the most part) super picky. It is a bit more work this way but we will be able to both confirm our numbers and give the final list to our venue.

I’d vote generics. We won’t be able to do a tasting until a month before our wedding so we went with “meat, fish, vegetarian” on our invites. We didn’t want to restrict ourselves w/o having tasted the options first.

We knew exactly what our meal options were going to be, but we still gave the generic “beef, chicken, vegetarian or other dietary restrictions” option on the RSVP form.

I honestly wait to send invites until you do the tasting. They would still be going out early and it would save you the hassle of the the whole food run around. I think this whole plan of sending out the inviation and RSVP with meal choice and then calling and confirming their meal choice again will be confusing for guests and make a whole lot more work for you.

@Willow1991:  Sorry I think I got confused with another post in here and thought it was you too. I think the generic would be fine.

I’d go with the generics as well.  You never know and don’t want people to feel disappointed.
