Planning my sister’s wedding. She is concerned her FH’s family will select the prime rib for the 7 year olds. We are wondering how to word the response cards so it is clear that adults choose form the 2 meals, and children have chicken fingers. My wedding had “family style” so I am clueless about meal selections. Thanks!

We had this worry too. We didn’t give a kids meal option on our RSVP, but if someone RSVPd with a kid, we contacted them to let them know that we had the option of a kids meal if they would rather have that for their child. All of them wanted the kids meal when given the option!

I’ve seen people put something like this under the “Please Initial what entree you would like….” ….”Children 12 and under will be served the children’s meal”

Some kids do prefer steak. That said, definitely include a kids’ meal on the rsvp card so that parents know what is available, and if possible, be descriptive as to what you are serving. The same applies to vegetarian meals.
If Out of Town kids are invited, they usually attend along with their parents.
