You’re saying people will select two entrees?  I don’t think that will happen, as long as you clearly differentiate the different selections.  We will be including out vegetarian option on the response card like:

____ Filet Mignon
____ Stuffed Chicken Breast
____ Baked Stuffed Portobello Mushroom Caps

I think most people know to only select one.  And if they mess up, you could call and confirm!

@gailm:  that was exactly what we did: little symbols of a carrot, fish, and cow– zero confusion out of over 200 people. your caterer sounds paranoid!

I sort of know who amongst my friends is a vegetarian and who isn’t and will perhaps ask the rest before sending the invites. Job done lol

If someone picks the cow and the carrot it’s safe to say they aren’t a vegetarian, so just write them down for the steak.

I guess I can see what your caterer is talking about. It is a little paranoid. 🙂

If you can’t do pictures, maybe if you worded abbie’s example like this?

____ Beef Entree: Filet Mignon
____ Chicken Entree: Stuffed Chicken Breast
____ Vegetarian Entree: Baked Stuffed Portobello Mushroom Caps

If the word “vegetarian” is on there somewhere, they’ll get it.

I would take what your caterer is saying with a grain of salt, I don’t think you’ll have too much trouble with your guests getting confused. 😉

There was absolutely no confusion with mine.

We had:

please indicate each guest’s entrée choice:

____ pistachio encrusted mahi mahi

____ hard carve rib eye

____ grilled veggie stack & calypso rice

I was surprised we had so many takers on the vegetarian (vegan, actually) entree.  I thought it would be just me and my older brother (a vegan).
