Hm, considering you’re having a buffet, it doesn’t make sense to have guests RSVP.  I would ask the carterer why they are having people RSVP for a buffet.  My best bet is to guesstimate how much to make, but as a caterer, they should already know.

I’m going to be honest. People are going to a) not remember what they rsvp’d for and b) eat both because its a buffet and its in front of them. I don’t think rsvping is necessary nor will it actually keep your costs down.

Krises.  It may just end up being a hassle in the end.

We’re doing a buffet and I never considered having guests RSVP with meal choice! I assumed they could have a little of everything. I hope that’s true because I already ordered my RSVP cards. 🙂

If you are serving a buffet, then no you do not ask guests for their meat choice. Everything on the buffet table is up for grabs when they go to fill their plates.
