    I chose #2 because you may not have only couples.  That could create a lot of printing headaches to custom each reply card.

    I like the second option! I’ll be doing this w/my response cards, too!

    I went to a wedding where they did the second option and it worked out great! I ended up not taking a date (before Teddy and I started dating) and a lot of my friends didnt either…so option 2 may save you some headaches.

    I think that option 2 is the most user friendly for your guests.

    #2 is easiest to understand.  You could also ask your guests to initial the dinner choice just in case you have to do some rearranging of the seating charts or if your caterer changes their mind.

    #1 seems like the better option. Otherwise you will have to track down who wants which entree so that the waitstaff knows who to give which meal to.

    I would go with #2.  I just like the layout better.  If you decide to go with #1, people who aren’t sure who their guest will be when they RSVP can just write in “Annie Smith’s Guest”.

    I gave each person the option to accept/decline and food choice. Many of my invites went to families so it was possible some would be coming and not others and I wanted to know exactly who and who wanted what. I also did it this way because I will probably split my cousins from my aunts and uncles and put the teenagers at one table and parents at another which would create a problem if I only knew a total number.

    I say #2, but have them initial, rather than indicate the number, that way you know what each particular guest ordered rather than just the number of chickens vs. fish you need.  If you don’t keep track of what each specific person orders and ensure that they get that on the wedding day, someone might forget what they picked and ask for the other thing, which could lead to you being short on one menu choice…
