I am working on the wordig for my response card & I need your advice on what to write for my meal choice. I am serving filet mignon and mahi mahi, so I need my guests to select on on their response card.
I’ve sent the wording out to a few family members, and so far, the only comments that I’ve received back are whether people will know what mahi mahi is, or whether I should put (fish) in parentheis after the word.
Do you guys think this is necessary? Right now I have:
DINNER CHOICE: ______Filet Mignon ______Mahi Mahi
Everyone knows what filet mignon is, so I would say "Filet Mignon (steak)." Therefore, I’m not sure I should say "Mahi mahi (fish)."
What do you think? Should I clarify by adding fish in parenthesis, or should I leave it as it is? What are you doing on your invitations or what have you seen on other invitations?
THANKS IN ADVANCE!

I would think that most people would know. It’s not exactly an exotic fish anymore. And I agree that anyone who doesn’t know should be able to figure it out – by Googling it, or just asking someone.

Thanks ladies! I went ahead and submitted the wording as I had originally intended (without "fish" in parenthesis). I think it looks much better this way & I’m sure people will figure it out. If they can’t, I’m sure they’ll end up picking the filet! 🙂

I have mahi mahi on my RSVP card, too. My issue was whether or not to put a hyphen in mahi mahi, and I chose not to, so I’m glad to see you made the same decision. That is so funny that some of your family thought you should describe mahi mahi. I’ve had the same issue with some of my family who put my wedding web site in Google and couldn’t find it. My parents thought I should put http:// in front of the address so people would know to use the address bar instead. Sometimes, you can’t worry about the minority and do what you know is right! Like you said, if they don’t know what it is, they shouldn’t order it!

I like that you put mahi mahi, I don’t eat all types of fish, so I’d prefer soemthing more specific. I they don’t know hwat it is, they can always google it!
