Are these sandwiches? I think it’s important to list everything. Will people be able to customize at all? For instance I hate Swiss cheese so that means there is only one option for me.

I would put the following on the response card:

  • Beef Tri-tips with BBQ Zing sauce
  • Smoked Turkey Breast with Pesto
  • Grilled Mac & Cheese, with Apple and Bacon
  • Atichoke, Sundried Tomato and Mozzerella

Then when you do the menu for the reception, I would list what she gave you with a line that says you may indicate which toppings you would like.

@linds12:  If these are made-to-order sandwiches, I wouldn’t list them out on a reply card. The truck should know how each of these sells, so should be able to say “ok, for 100 people you’ll probably want 50% this one, 20% this one, then 15% of each of these others.” It might not be exact, but I think this is better than boxing someone into a sandwich choice 6 weeks ahead of time, when it would be super easy to let them decide on-the-spot instead. It’s different when the caterer needs to pre-plate a specific item, but does not sound like that’s the case here. I would put menu cards on the tables of course, but would not make people pick via reply cards with their RSVPs.

@Daisy_Mae:  She might not know what a wedding crowd usually wants. She is just trying to get an idea

I would double check with the caterer that they will have enough overage in case people change their mind or forget what they choose.

I wouldn’t list the actual sandwhiches. I’d do something like any regular, plated dinner:

  • Beef
  • Turkey
  • Veggie

The Mac N’ Cheese one is kind of the odd ball, cause it’s mostly veg but then has the bacon. Are you doing one sandwhich per person? If it’s more of a “go up and get what you want” thing, I’d assume the caterer would have an estimate for how many you should have (like, for cupcakes people usually say something like 1.5 per person). In that case, I’d do 1 and a quarter of each of the other three and a quarter of the mac n’ cheese or something like that.
