RSVP and Food Allergies (Day #16)
As a wedding planner, I assist my clients with the wording of their wedding invitations. I wrote a blog in 2013 on what should be included on the RSVP card, but more recently I've been asked, how do you handle wedding guests with food allergies?
It's fine to add a line at the bottom that read "Specify dietary restrictions or Note dietary restrictions". Then once you have collected the information on what your guest's needs are, work with your caterer to create and entree they can enjoy. And on wedding day, especially if you have had several requests, you can also add a small line to table menus that reads "Please let your server know if you have requested a special meal due to dietary restrictions."
