i’m putting all of the menu options on the menu and tucking it into a pocket in the napkin. you could have different menus, but that would be super time and labor intensive, and probably a big headache. you could put “choice of” at the top, or just put “or” on a line in between each entree.

My venue had printed menus for everyone, even though they had picked their entrees in advance. For the entrees, there was just a heading that said something line “second course” that listed all three choices, without an “or” in between.

I’ve seen the menus done with all the entrees listed as PPs said.  I think “choice of” at the beginning makes the most sense so guests who forgot they made an entree selection don’t expect surf & turf just because you list a fish and a steak.

The only problem with putting “Choice of” might make some people think they can pick whatever they want that night.

It could cause a problem if they may tell waiters they ordered something they didn’t RSVP for, especially single male friends who may have had a girlfriend RSVP for them (that’s something my husband would have done).
