We've been receiving our RSVP cards back in the mail, and some have come back with notes on them. Not just "can't wait to celebrate" or "sorry I can't be there", either. Some have food/drink requests on them, and FI and I have differing opinions on how to handle this.
On two, we've gotten back specific food requests. One said "no tomatoes" and one said "please no onions in my food". From the two people that wrote these, I know it's not allergies (they're my mom's cousins, and there are no known allergies for them). FI says we should accomodate them by asking the chef not to put the requested items in the salads. I say they are adults and can figure out how to not eat them, especially since it would mean impacting two tables' worth of food (we're are serving salads family style at the tables). Thoughts?
The third request was "absolutely no alcohol on the table for me". I don't know if that means at their place setting, on the table, or what, but the bar is open and the guest can have whatever they'd like...soda, juice, etc. The toast is with sparkling cider, but there will be wine on the table. Thoughts on how to handle? Ignore it? I don't know why the guest made the request, but they don't HAVE to drink the wine on the table.
I didn't realize that peopl would even make requests like this, so any help would be appreciated!
