Is it assigned seating once the guests get to their tables? If you use a seating chart instead of escort cards you can still have place cards on the table. The place cards can indicate meal choices.

@cb543822:  If you don’t know what seat each guest will choose, you will only be able to tell the waitstaff that there are 3 beef, 2 chicken and 3 fish at table 12. The waiters then will have to ask each guest their choice of entree, but that is not unusual.

You could get some wine charms in as many colors as you have entree choices, have them near the seating chart with a sign asking guests to pick one to match their entree ( have sample pics) and ask the guests to place them on their water glass.

You might even be able to find (or make) wine charms in the shape of a cow, fish, chicken etc.

the last wedding i went to we indicated on the meal cards from the invite (i’m assuming so they could get a total count) but at the wedding a waiter went around and took the orders like a regular restaurant then delivered the plates accordingly

We had assigned tables so our servers knew that Mary Smith at table 4 needed a vegetarian meal. So the servers went to table 4 and said, “Ms Mary Smith?” and Ms Mary indicated who she was and everyone was happy. 

I’ve had this done for me a few times.
