A Comprehensive Guide for RSVP with Meal Choices

 Favorite

If you are planning to have a seated wedding dinner with multiple food choices, it would be best to give your guests a chance to select what they would like to eat from the menu. It’s a long lost tradition that seems to be hitting back again. Caterers also appreciate such information prior to wedding. Special rsvp with meal choices are designed for this purpose or separate cards, coordinated with your wedding invite can be printed.

Write down a menu card in simple and concise way, like:

RSVP Card Etiquettes

  • Send the response card from two to three weeks prior to the wedding. This period would be sufficient for the attendees to reply back with all the details including rsvp with meal choices. Send it sooner than that, in case your caterer demands the details of headcount.

  • If you want to follow the tradition, reply cards with envelops are the most common way. But for an eco-friendly option, a reply post card (with postage) is enough.

  • Guide the attendees well about this whole rsvp thing, so they do not feel any confusion. For example, (Kindly email your RSVP response to the email,  Mywedding@thisemail.com by the said date. And if you have opted for an online rsvp, for their responses, do ask them to send on the mentioned website (e.g. neilandjane.site.com). Also mention the deadline for this.
