    Yes, I am vegetarian and I know to make a note.

    Yes, it's my knowledge that vegetarians will know to make a note.

    No, add the note you listed below.

    No, I have better wording (please specify!)

    why don’t you just add it as a 3rd choice on the RSVP card? Then you can use similar wording/format as the other two entrees.

    I think the little note you’re thinking of adding will be helpful. It might save some guests from wondering whether veg is even an option.

    No, I’m a vegetarian, and in the past I’ve just ended up not eating if there’s no choice for me. I’ve since learned that many caterers have a silent option, but didn’t hear about that until coming on here. So definitely add a note. I really had a hard time enjoying the weddings where I didn’t get to eat!

    You could say something about letting you know about any “dietary requirements/allergies”? In Australia we’re not given meal choices with RSVPs, so I just include it with my RSVP email/card. I imagine people with nut allergies/gluten free etc do the same, but it’s probably good to give them a prompt (otherwise we might all assume it’s a buffet or that we will get a choice on the night).

    I would phrase it as “Please note any dietary requirements on the reverse side of this card”

    Or put

    “Entree Choice:

    ___ Chicken/Filet

    ___ Vegetarian”

    I don’t have any menu options on my RSVP card either but I had a vegetarian put a special note on her card to let me know that she needed 3 vegetarian plates for her and her kids.
