I don’t think a full description is required. You could have that included on your website if you have one!

Yes, as a picky eater, please have the descriptions accessbile somewhere. I went to a plated wedding where NO ONE could tell me what the options were, so I chose vegetarian, thinking it the safe choice. It ended up being some awful tofu and mushroom grossness, when, had I known that the beef was going to be steak diane, I would have chosen that instead (especially knowing that the veg meal would be…ugh…tofu).

Well, since your RSVP template says to indicate the number of each meal option, wouldn’t you know when you receive it back how many in a family want beef/chicken/veg?  Surely, no one will RSVP and have someone in the family opt to not eat a dinner?

ETA: And yes, please provide a description of the type of meal.  It will help your guests make a more informed decision on what they would like to eat.
