On our RSVP cards, we had four meal options (chicken, steak, kid meal, or vegetarian) and had a line underneath that said “Dietary restrictions/allergies___________”

Our RSVP also asked people to put initials by each meal choice. It was a little wordier than the average RSVP, but we didn’t get any questions from guests and almost everybody filled it out correctly. It also made things very easy for the servers at dinner b/c each person’s escort card indicated their meal choice.

Hi just a tip here. If you have vegans AND vegetarians, just have a plant based (vegan) option- don’t do both. All vegetarians can eat vegan food but not all vegans can eat vegetarian food. I have met both at weddings and it is very frustrating. There are vegan dishes that can be made to satisfy both dietary requirements. That may minimize the food options so it would be: 

Date Venue Names Etc

Meal Options 

Chicken_ Pork_ Plant Based (Vegan)_ 

Guests _ Children _ 

RSVP by X

 

I hope this helps!!

First of all, thank you for thinking of us vegans 🙂 . Instead of asking “vegan/vegetarian” I would put a line for “dietary restrictions/allergies.” That way you’ll also know if there are any gluten frees or other allergies. 

For the kids, if you just ask for all attendees’ names, you’ll know which are the kids (if you know them, right?). RSVP cards usually have the M____________ which is where people put “Mr and Mrs Jones” or whatever. If their kids are coming too, they’d add their names there too. But make sure the invitation is addressed to everyone you are inviting, so put the kids names on the invitation as well if they are being invited.

If you post what you have so far, we can help you tweak it.
