Hi everyone, if you could please read over my wording I'd appreciate it!
Together with Their Families, (used this because our parents are helping pay but we are still paying the majority and doing all the planning)

Reception to (Immediately?) Follow
Also, we are doing plated meals so on our RSVP cards we will have them choose their meals. I read on another post that it's best to give a full description of the meals, so our RSVP cards will have:
-Braised Beef Short Ribs with Whipped Potatoes and Shoestring Vegetables
-Herb-Roasted Chicken Breast with Pan-Seared Truffle Risotto Cakes, Ratatouille, and Porcini Mushroom Jus
-Prosciutto & Sage Wrapped Salmon with Black Pepper Fettucini, Lemon Caper Sauce, and Asparagus
Is this too much wording though? Also, if we are sending an invite to say, a family with 4 guests invited, is it safe to assume that they'll know to put numbers of which meals they want? Like if two of the family members want chicken they will know to write a '2' next to the chicken spot, I hope? Or do I need to put clear instructions to do so...
We are also going to include a direction card that will have our website address on it.
I plan to send these out by mid-July, and have them RSVP by mid-September...we are moving at the beginning of September so we won't have a mailing address for them to send their responses to us. So we are thinking of asking FI's parents if we can use their address on the RSVP's. I'm sure they won't mind getting them at their house, I just know I may have some anxiety over not getting the RSVPs back directly, haha. Is there something else we could do?
