    I don’t think it’s tacky, and if your venue needs the menu selections prior how else are you going to obtain the info?

    I have never, ever heard or read that menu selections on a response card are tacky and I am obsessed with etiquette.

    This was our card. Our website had full descriptions of the items.

    PS, If your wedding date is right, it’s pretty early to be worried about invitations.

    I tied a moo card onto the invitation directing people to the wedding website for that.  Almost everyone did it.  I was pleasantly surprised!

    I don’t think it’s “tacky” to put the meal options on the card, though.  That is perfectly acceptable.

    I will also add that as a guest I like when the choices are a bit descriptive like @mrsSonthebeach: example.

    @mrsSonthebeach:  I have also never heard that this is tacky. Other than buffet or no-chocie weddings, every other invite I’ve gotten has had a choice.

    PS love these invite and your menu selections! sounds delicious!

    I didn’t know it was tacky to do that – that is what I was planning on doing! Will probably still do it too 😛
