My venue requires having a count of food selections two weeks prior to my event. We has already ordered our invites (along with response cards that did not include this information) – We can still edit this though.
I’ve read it’s tacky to include menu selections on the response cards but what choice do I have?
How has everyone else handled this? if you included the choices, how did you word it?

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?

- Wedding: March 2012 - Pelican Grand Beach Resort
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.

- Wedding: June 2012 - Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards
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 😛
