Vegetarian option on Rsvp.

So the venue we are getting married at lets our guest have the option to choose their meals the day of the wedding but they asked for us to get a count of vegetarian meals. Since we don’t need a count of dinners how would we indicate on the RSVP for vegetarian meals without confusing the guest and making them possibly think there isn’t a meat option for the dinner.

    Here is how mine was worded. We’re having a buffet so in general meal choice doesn’t matter but I have a few vegans in my group.

    I agree with PP, just put a line for dietary restrictions.

    The reason why I don’t think that is a good idea is because I don’t want people putting down all of the other sensitivity’s like milk,eggs, and gluten. All I need to know is the amount veggie meals we need

    I don’t think it hurts to know about other allergies though. I would still stick with dietary restrictions to get your count because I think you’re going to confuse people if vegetarian is the only choice you put on the rsvp card.

    Why don't you want to know who has nut allergies/wheat allergies/nightshade allergies/gluten sensitivities/etc? It certainly doesn't hurt you to know, and it's information that should be helpful for your caterer to know ahead of time - especially if there are any allergies that require extra care for cross-contamination issues.

    Ask about dietary restrictions on the RSVP card. It'll all be information that's helpful for your caterer to know no matter what!
