I’m just contacting people directly about specific food allergies (gluten free, sugar free, etc).  I didn’t have enough space on my response card to put all of this information out there.

I think I might print double sided response cards with a space on the back for allergies and a song request.

The invitations I send from my office for dinners always ask about dietary restrictions. You can just add 1 line at the bottom saying “Please advise of any dietary restrictions” followed by a space.

I only had about 8ish people with known restrictions, so I contacted them myself (or Mother-In-Law contacted the ones in her family) but we also put a note on our wedding website to please e-mail or call us if they had allergies we didn’t already know about.

I think if you have more than a couple people it would be easier to keep track of the restriction on the response card. I like the pp wording.

Depends on how “fancy” your wedding and invitations are. If it’s very traditional, then NO–don’t include it. Please will reach out to you if they have an issue. You could also put a note on the info page of the website.
