I guess so…if you’re just doing little cards though, wouldn’t it be nice (and not much more expensive) to just have one for everyone?

Can you call those couples who did not indicate to clarify for you? This way you get to personally reach out to folks to say that you’re so excited that they will celebrate with you, AND be able to tell the caterer which person gets what dish. Placecards per couple will get very confusing very fast!

@Willow1991:  This is happening a lot with me too. We said “please initial your choice” on the RSVP cards and we’re getting Xs or numbers. Not helpful.

For couples, we just decided to assign the meals they selected and let them figure it out at the reception. It’s easy enough for them to just switch plates if we guessed wrong.

I think it’s a better idea to do couple placecards rather than have them switch meals. It would seem a little confusing and disorganized. I think it’s a great idea to indicate 2 meal preferences on 1 couple placecard, and then they can tell the server who wants what.

(Also, I’m too lazy/busy to want to call every couple! That would be a huge pain the ass.)

Are you sure she didn’t mean for escort cards? We guessed (correctly, too) for all 6 couples that didn’t tell us what choice was for whom, but anyway, a married couple can easily switch plates.

i had to do this b/c of meal choices with my venue too.  i chose individual placecards b/c to me it just seemed so much easier.   if there was a confusion with guests meal choices, i called them.

how many guests are you expecting?  you have more than enough time to call or email those guests who did not rsvp their meal choices properly.  also, you can alway delegate some of this task over to your parents.
