Choose the right RSVP words to avoid wedding day worries

Sending out your invitations is an exciting milestone in the wedding planning process, but making sure you get the most useful responses from your guests requires a little thought.

Welcome to a winter wedding wonderland

As well as getting a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ RSVP from each guest, you need to make sure that everyone will be well fed on the day. To do this, it’s essential to find out if any of your guests have any special dietary requirements that need to be accommodated.

This could mean catering for vegetarians and vegans, along with people who have food intolerances. They could require gluten-free, lactose-free or coeliac-suitable dishes, to name just a few.

The wedding team at Coltsford Mill have many years of experience in advising brides and grooms on how to obtain the most useful RSVPs. Our top tip for asking guests about dietary needs is this: don’t ask them to state “dietary requirements”, instead ask if they have any “dietary allergies” that you should know about.

This distinction should ensure that guests stick to just informing you about allergies and intolerances, rather than overwhelming you with food preferences. You do need to know if your guests are allergic to nuts, but you don’t necessarily need to know that they don’t like tomatoes or mushrooms!

At Coltsford Mill, we pride ourselves on providing delicious meals to cater for all dietary needs. Our creative chefs devise the most wonderful vegetarian and vegan menus, along with dishes that lose the allergens but none of the flavour. We can also suggest some great solutions for children, including fussy eaters.

Another consideration is accessibility for your guests. It’s a good idea to check if anyone will require wheelchair access or other disability accommodations. Coltsford Mill is a mobility-friendly venue – ask us how we can ensure everyone gets to enjoy every minute of your wonderful wedding at Coltsford Mill.
