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.
Im not sure why it posted all weird sorry guys. But i was going to list each option on one line not on the same line. Im worried about people doing that Kacie209 and was wondering how to avoid it?
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!
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!
elyseDCB: awesome!! i might have to print ours too we have a nice printer
Kacie209: yours is perfect!!! 😀 I couldnt find anything online for some reason. or maybe i looked too hard and too long because i definitely got very confused :s
LadyH: I’d like to do that definitely so no one’s added/written in that wasnt invited. Thats why the inner and outer envelopes with invitees names!
Thank you ladies so much!
