Guest Attire?

Recommended Posts

So I in thinking about our STDs and Invitations and whatI should list as the attire for guests. What have other people listed the attire as and how would you describe what you were looking for. I want people to be comfortable on the beach but then also look nice, What have you guys put on yor invitations?

i did put a no bathing suit, casual shorts, and flip flop rule...unless they were nice beaded ones...

 

we kind of had to hint to alot of our guests as well as to the appropriate dress.

steve tried to do that too and in the beginning said he did not want to put guidelines on what people wore BUT i was afraid they would show up to the ceremony in their wet bathing suits sick.gif ...

 

after talking to his mom, friends etc. they wanted a guideline and idea how to dress....everyone wants to be dressed appropriately for events.

 

maybe you can suggest it on your website instead of on an STD or invitation...

 

we had an FAQ section on our site and one of the questions was:

 

Wedding Attire

What should I wear to the wedding? We are having a relaxed, beach wedding weekend, so we are encouraging a "beach chic" look for the events. For the ceremony, men should wear a nice shirt and pants (Tommy Bahama look is good), suits and ties are ok but not required by any means. Women should wear dresses. Sandals are ok, but please no shorts and flip flops during the ceremony.

We put "Dressy Resort Attire" in our invitations. Not sure if that's a real phrase, but it's the only phrase that I threw at my fiance and actually said he might know what to wear from that phrase.

 

I am seriously crossing my fingers that nobody will show up in flip flops and shorts. Let's just say I'm HEAVILY spreading the attire by word of mouth. After all, it is still a wedding!

By word of mouth, I've let people know that they should be more dressy for the church part but can wear dressy flip flops or sandals at the reception should they choose. Shorts are not acceptable. You're right, it IS a wedding.

I did not state anything on our STD's, but I did indicate the attire to be "beachy chic" on our wedding website. I went on to say what that means dressy casual. I know, it's tough! Honestly, the only person I am really worried about under dressing is my mom...we've already discussed that I have the power of veto over her outfit :)
