Could you fit a line that says “Please initial your meal choice” ?  Then the only issue would be if people had the same initials in the same household, but that’s a lot easier to handle than guessing between Uncle Bob and Aunt Sue!

For your first question, I think the bride’s name should still go first. Traditionally, the bride is listed first for all wedding related items. 

If you’re worried about people RSVPing who are not invited, you could say something like, “We have reserved ___ seats in your honor.” You can fill in the blank for each RSVP.

I like the PP’s idea on your last questions, and it’s what I did as well. I listed the entree choices on my RSVP card and said, “Initial choice of entree.” However, I have gotten RSVP cards back that are not initialed and are checked instead. I’ll have to follow up with those people, which is extra work.

@WineAndCupcakes:  If the bride’s name is listed first, then your parents names should be first as well. Otherwise, it would look like you guys switched parents, lol. Have you asked the grooms parents if they want their names listed first? You could switch it around, but it won’t follow traditional format. You could also say something like, “Together with their parents, Jane and Jack request the honor…” That way you wouldn’t be singling anyone out.
