    I think the wording is okay, but I also see no problem with leaving it off all together. I have received plenty of RSVP cards without an entree selection question and never thought anything of it.

    If there was no wording on what was for dinner than I would assume it would be a buffet, but that might just be a regional thing (?).

    So personally I would remove everything after the dash (they still know dinner will be served with the dinner reception)

    I would completely remove the wording regarding the dinner choices.  If I got an invitation like that I would assume it was buffet, a duet plated dinner or that it was restaurant style, (with menus).  I wouldn’t think that they forgot to include the dinner selection.

    If I didnt see choices on the RSVP card, I would assume that it was buffet, single choice, or choose at the table.

    I think it’s too wordy for an invitation and would leave off everything after “cocktails and dinner to follow”.

    As a guest, I wouldn’t think anything of it.

    Another vote for leaving it off. Even if people assume it’s a buffet, they’ll figure out that it’s not when they arrive. No big deal.

    I just got a wedding invite that said  “cocktails, dinner, and dancing to follow” I think that sounds cute. Your wording is a bit awkward and unnecessary.

    I don’t think anyone is going to think you forgot to ask what they want to eat. they are going to assume it’s buffet or resturant style
