Do you at least have a general idea of what options you will offer (i.e. chicken/fish)?  Otherwise I have no idea!!

Yeah I would try to generalize on your response cards (steak, chicken, fish, veggie, etc) and worst case scenario, you would have to call people to tell them there was a change and their choice isn’t served. It happens!

Do you HAVE to put the menu option on the invites? I’d just send them out without it if you can.

You could see if you could move your menu meeting up to this week.

I had the same problem!  I had to wait until after my meeting to have the response cards printed!  Fortunately, my printer only took 3 days.

Definitely see if you can move your menu meeting up to this week or generalize what you’re having “Beef Dish, Chicken Dish, Seafood Dish” to at least get a feel of what everyone is going to want.

You could also call your venue and ask if it’s possible for guests to be able to choose during the wedding. So having waiters come around and ask what everyone is having.

We put icons instead of the actual menu choice.  We had a pork leg, a roast chicken, and a vegetable icon.  I figure people will mostly just want to know the protien, it’s not important if it’s rosemary chicken or garlic chicken.  (And if they really want to they can switch at the wedding, the caterer makes enough for +10% so it’s not a big deal).  We actually got a response from someone who LOVED the icons!

we dont have the option on our responses because we ran into a similar problem, instead the venue waiters are going to give options there and let them choose the night of…

I agree with just letting them know the type of meat, if you just really want to put something on there.

We’re in the same boat. We’re putting chicken, beef, and vegetarian on the rsvp card, and then once we finalize our menu we will post in on our wedding website, so that people can see the detailed menu before choosing an option.

I also say you should just add a generalized option such as chicken/beef/fish/veg
