So we are in the fortunate position that our venue allows us to provide 2 choices for appetizer, 2 choices for entree, and 2 choices for dessert. The downside of this is the RSVP card! Most RSVP cards have room for an entree choice, but not enough room to add in appetizer and dessert choices as well.
So we can do a few things:
1) use a standard RSVP card – put the attend/will not attend on the front (with a note asking them to see the reverse for menu selections) and put the menu information on the back
2) use an enclosure card (like for directions or hotel information) which has more room to add in all the food options. The downside of this is they don’t come with envelopes so we would have to find envelopes in the proper size that would also fit in the larger invitation envelope.
I like the look of the standard RSVP with the dinner options on the back much better BUT I’m afraid it will be confusing. We’re trying to not do custom as that makes it much more expensive
What are your thoughts? Any ideas I’m not thinking of?

I think you will be alright, especially if you putthe note on the bottom! You might have one or two misses despite all that, but those people you could always call up or email? I’d do it that way, I’d rather save on the paper and maybe deal with a couple mishaps than print an extra card for evvvvery invite. You never know, even if you DID print an extra menu card, someone could forget to mail it with the rsvp or totally overlook it in the invite suite!

Is your standard RSVP a postcard they will be mailing back? I assume not if you are having the options on the back and the RSVP on the front.
I voted for the separate card. That way you can make it bigger and add the options on there, but as long as the RSVP’s aren’t postcard type then I think you could do front and back RSVP.

Honestly, I’m in the middle of getting back my responses, and do yourself a favor and don’t assume people will figure it out… I would use the enclosure cards and find envelopes that fit just for the sake of your sanity..

@megz06: nope, not a postcard. We’re doing a standard card with an envelope to mail it back to us.

Can you just find a larger RSVP card so you can fit everything on the front? I think a lot of people might miss it if it’s on the back…I’d like to be positive and say everyone is smart and they’ll figure it out. But in all honesty, my experience has been that people can be shockingly dumb.

I would put the info on the back of the RSVP. I’d label the choice 1, 2 etc and then they would be forced to check the rest of the invite for details. They’ll find it.
