How to Write Wedding Invitations With Dinner Choices


You have planned every last detail of your wedding day for you and your guests. Your invitations must include the basics, including the full names of the bride and groom, the date and time of the ceremony and the reception, as well as a reply card. Make your guests' job of responding to their attendance at your reception easier by letting them know the dinner choices in advance, clearly wording their choices so they know what they will be eating and you know how many plates to order.

  • Meet with the printer to choose invitations that include response cards.

  • Formalize the text on the invitations, including the names of the bride and groom, the date and location of the wedding and the date and location of the reception.

  • Add wording to the reply card that includes the choices for dinner. Use clear wording such as "Please indicate your choice of chicken or beef for dinner," followed by a blank line for the recipient to write their choice on.

  • Assemble the invitations and include a stamp on the pre-addressed reply card.

  • Mail the invitations four to six weeks before the wedding.

Tips & Warnings

  • Invitations can be easily printed at home if you do not want to incur the cost of a formally printed professional invitations. Quality paper, envelopes and reply cards are available at office supply stores.
