I’m totally lost with ordering my invitations, particularly the wording on the response cards. We’re serving a plated dinner, and guests get a choice of beef, chicken or fish. Do I simply have the words “beef, chicken, fish” or do I have it written out what each meal is? In case it helps, here are the specific meals being served:
8oz Grilled Flat Iron Steak with a Garlic Shallot Butter
Pecan Dusted Chicken with Vanilla Glaze and a Baked Apple Relish
Crab and Spinach Stuffed Fillet of Sole with a Shiitake Butter Sauce
If I do in fact write out the specific meal choices being served, is the wording above okay?

I think it is pretty standard to just say beef, chicken, or fish (I have actually typically seen it as little pictures / symbols). It just takes up so much space to write it out on the invite and it isn’t like you have anything crazy out of the ordinary that some may want to avoid.

We just put what it was without descriptions. For example with yours:
Pecan Dusted Chicken
Crab and Spinach Stuffed Fillet of Sole
Grilled Flat Iron Steak

If you are concerned about not providing enough detail, you can always make a note at the bottom of the response card ‘for further menu detail visit http://www.abcdefg.com‘, that is what a friend of mine did on her response card. She just had a response column of yes or no and name(s) attending with a line that said “please indicate meal choice(s)” and had surf and turf, chicken, vegetarian with lines next to them to mark in. This worked well for her. I do think usign symbols to indicate the animal is a really cute idea too.
