purrrbaby:  Just chicken beef or vegetarian. you dont need to use up all that space on the card. It may be difficult to fit.

Otherwise looks great

purrrbaby:  I’d list the short descriptions, if you have room. Although I prefer to order the vegetarian entree, I will go with chicken entree, if the vegie option is stacked, broiled vegetables, or has marinara sauce, which isn’t optional.

I put in details as to what our food was, so people knew. But, we only had 3 options and then asked for anyone with dietary needs to write in a small section. It allowed them to know exactly what they were getting. Ours were Stuffing filled Chicken Breast, London Broil, and Chicken Strips (children’s). We only had one person who needed something special, and that was gluten free.

I also had requested that people initial next to their choice, and had a lot of people come back with check marks instead – so if it was a couple and they check marked each, I didn’t know who was asking for what and changed my whole place cards… which did work out fine in the end. Just an FYI.

This is how I’m doing mine. We are doing plated dinners, with choices, but our venue wants to know ahead of time on who gets what instead of the guests telling the staff. I’m making a card just for food choices, then on the response card it’ll be:

 

_ Accepts with Excitement

_ Declines with Disappoint

 

Name      Meal Choice

_____      _________

_____      _________

 

I have some families of 7 in my family, so I have to get the details down pat!

purrrbaby:  In theory, yes. I haven’t committed to making mine yet as we are nailing out the details. I’ll have my one big invite, then smaller cards for meal choices, response cards, and possibly a lodging/directions ones. I couldn’t justify buying them online for ~$100 more, so I’m going to print them on cardstock with nice font at home. Thinking of group them together with a nice ribbon for added effect, depending on shipping.

purrrbaby:  I don’t think it’s avoidable, as my request was CLEARLY written for them to write their name. Here is what mine looked like (we did postcards):

At first, I wanted to make place cards for each person with their choice on it. But, after getting back a bunch of RSVPs that didn’t indicate the specific item each person wanted, I just made up meal cards, and then placed the total of what was picked in an envelope with the guests (couples, families, etc) name on the outside. It worked well.

I kind of wish I would have done what elyseDCB suggested; it’s smart. It may prevent people from check marking where they should be writing their name. In theory!

This looks great. I like the option where you list the food descriptions, if there is room. Some picky eaters might appreciate that. If you are reserving a certain number of seats per invite, you should have a line indicating that. For example ____ Seats reserved in your honor. But if not, it sounds like your RSVP card is all done!
