Our wedding dinner has a pasta course with a gluten free pasta option available. Our meat course is chicken with a vegetarian option available. Should I indicate this on the rsvp card? If yes how? I was thinking about having a line that says…Please indicate dietary restrictions. What does everyone think?

Does your caterer need numbers( I can’t tell by how you worded this if it is an open option or buffet or not)? If so give a chicken or vegetarian option, and then ask for dietary restrictions. If someone needs a Girlfriend option (or anything else), they can write it there.

I think asking guests to let you know of any restrictions is beneficial, as there might be some allergies that you’re unaware of. We included a line on our RSVP cards asking guests to put down any dietary requirements. Good thing we did, too, as we had a couple of fructose and lactose intolerant guests that we weren’t aware of.

You should definitely ask for dietary restrictions. Would be super sad if someone turned up and couldn’t eat the meals.

At the bottom of our sVO card we have asked guests to advise of any dietary requirements. As PPs have said you might not know about Uncle Phil’s lactose intolerance or Aunt Lil’s seafood aversion.
