We actually did not offer a meal selection at all and made no mention of it on our response cards.  Instead, we served a combination plate of filet of beef and shellfish.

We listed our wedding menu in full detail on our wedding website, and I included a line that if someone is allergic to shellfish or cannot not eat beef to please contact us, and I provided our e-mail address.

I already knew of several people who have a seafood allergy, and instead of receiving both surf AND turf, these guests received two portions of the beef.  Likewise, the individuals I knew could not eat beef received two portions of the shellfish.

When I learned that I had one vegetarian guest, I contacted his wife directly and asked her which of the vegetarian options he preferred, and we provided him with that meal.

When it comes to invitations and response cards, simple is better. Details belong on wedding websites. Keep the cards clean and easy. People can easily contact you with any dietary restrictions, especially if you direct them to a wedding website.

We are having a buffet so we are simply stating please list any dietary needs or allergies.

I had a silhouette of a cow, a fish and a carrot. Full description was available on the website.

I included a brief description of each entree. Filet mignon, Crab stuffed filet of sole, Butternut squash ravioli (V) indicating the V for vegetarian. I might add something about allergies or dietary restrictions to the website.
