instead of having them check a box next to an entree we put a big line like this below and said please write your full name next to your entree choice.  We still had some people that did it wrong though, put numbers instead of names or just put an X.  We had to call those people.

you can also just ask them to initial next to the choice

I think we’re going with the “initial next to your choice” route.

We asked our guests to “initial next to your prefered meal choice”

I’m going to have to do the same thing. I’m planning on putting different colored ribbon on the escort cards. I’m so worried about people filling out the RSVP cards wrong. None of my friends or family members have had a seated dinner, so I’m afraid no one is going to know how to fill out the card right.

@amariem25: How many people did you end up calling? How many people filled it out correctly?

We have to submit entree choices but fortunately not by individual, just a total of each and then a total of each per table. If we had to give an exact meal-to-guest list, we probably would have gone the “Initial for each choice” or I might have created stickers with the invitees initials to include with the RSVP so they would just have to slap stickers next to their choice.

We also went the “initial by your meal choice” route.  A lot of people still did it wrong (put a check or number by the meal instead of their initials), but we figured it wasn’t that big of a deal since they were sitting together anyway.  If we guessed wrong, they could always trade.

We did the “initial next to your meal choice” thing too.  Most people followed directions.  Some put check marks instead, but they were either picking the same meal or were a couple who could just trade if we guessed wrong.

Was JUST thinking about this today myself — and having a mini-freak-out!  Thanks for the suggestions, ladies!

At every wedding I’ve been to the servers asked what dish we had chosen. They know the number of each entree to make by the numbers you give them based on the RSVPs, and then they know who gets which entree by asking the guests.
