    hey all,

    im not sure if this topic is covered anywhere and i tried looking for it but couldnt find anything.  The Royal menu options need to be decided prior to the wedding day.  i want to give our guests 2 options but it is not allowed to give the guests the options when they are sitting at reception like any other wedding reception hall.  to determine what the guests would like, do i ask each guest prior to the day?  i was thinking of sending the choices with the invitation and have them send back their dinner choice to me with their RSVP.   is this tacky or asking too much for our guests?


    any advice would be appreciated!

      A lot of destination brides on this site have sent pre-wedding packets (about a month or so in advance of the wedding) to all guests who have booked.  These packets normally include a packing list, information about the destination, and sometimes luggage tags.  If you were to do a packet like that you could include a self-addressed and stamped post card (you could get them free from Vista Print) with the mailing.  That way you are only asking the guests that have already booked to respond. 


      If you already know which options you are giving your guests, and you think they will respond to an RSVP with the invitation, then that would be the easiest way to go.  I do not intend to send an RSVP with the invites, because I think a lot of guests won't really know if they can make it when the invite arrives in the mail and then it will get lost.  I will only assume someone is coming once they have put a deposit on a room.


      There is also the option of emailing guests after they book.  Once they have put down a deposit, you can send the guests a personal email about how excited you are that they are coming and ask them what they would prefer to eat at that point.
