I haven’t but could you somehow incorporate it into your centerpieces? Using flags or color coded candles or something like that?

we did! i used little crystal stickers on the bottom corner of the place card i think the chicken was the most popular so we just left those blank, then we did red for salmon and black for steak.

A third vote for crystals! We put crystals on our invites, so we will continue with crystals on the place cards. The color of the crystal will indicate which meal choice.

My cousin used A,B,C,etc. stamps and just stamped it in a light color on the cards. I’ve also seen people use different place cards for different meal options.

I color coded the paper. i also know people who have added a ribbon in different colors. My wedding colors were royal purple, lime green and white. We had three meal choices so I tried to put what worked with each type of food best. Green was vegetarian, White was chicken and Purple was steak. It went really well and there was no confusion on the part of the delivery of meals!

sorry for the large pic!

Vonnegurl  did this  

I wanted to be able to make the placecards in advance, so they are standard tents with the guests’ names on them (in English and Japanese). Then as the RSVPs come in with menu choice, I am going to add a 1.5″ sticker to it. I made them with Photoshop and printed them on photo sticker paper.

Other brides have used something that fits with their wedding theme like colored buttons , butterflies or wax seals


You can also get hole punches in various shapes, little rubber stamps or stickers
