Wedding RSVP Card - Entree Selections - list full description or just general category?

The Oracle | Jun 23, 2010 10:04 AM

I'm creating the text for the RSVP card for my upcoming wedding.

For weddings in the past - I've always hated the generic categories: Fish, Poultry, Meat.... I find it's impossible (and slightly annoying) to select an entree because you don't know how the protein is being prepared - or what type of fish it is, etc.

So - now that it's time to create my own, I'd like to put a detailed description of the actual entree selections. But, someone advised me against it, saying that people would start making special requests omitting parts of the preparation, based on food preferences.

We are waiting on a final menu tasting to get our invites to the printer ... I'm starting to second guess my decision to be more detailed and revert back to a standard practice of just being more generic in my descriptions (to get the invites back sooner).

'hounds, help me out - what are your thoughts on the subject?
