This is what we used- "Dress code for the wedding is 'Beach Formal'. Dress for the elements (sun, sand, and water) He could wear: A summer suit with a linen shirt (no ties required), linen pants or khakis, and sandals. She could wear: A formal summer sundress at tea- or knee-length with flat sandals. "[/quotePerfect!

We are going to put this on the "response card", instead of making it a formal card that they have to mail back. I was thinking "Beach Chic". I like adding "Dress for the elements - sand, sun and water" from JHarwood. this is what we put on our website (want to condense it for the invite though):
Quote:
[TABLE] "Beach Chic" will be the clothing attire theme for our wedding! GIRLS: Think bright, bold colorful sundresses or skirt outfits. (our wedding colors are lime green, fuschia with maybe a hint of teal) GUYS: Linen Khaki Pants with a brightly colored shirt would be great. On your feet: NO HIGH HEELS! Girls, you will thank us later! The island is rocky (well, the part where you walk from the boat to the beach), so cute flip flops or sandals are perfect. You can always choose to kick them off if you'd like and go shoe-less! (This goes for guys and girls). Keep in mind that although we will be by the ocean, it will be HOT out there with no A/C or fans like most of us are used to. So make sure you are comfortable in your attire, as we'll probably be on the island about 5 hours or so. There will be plenty of bottled water provided to keep everyone hydrated. [/TABLE]
I like this explanation!

Ok so right out of the destination wedding bible it says...
  • Black Tie Optional - This is if your wedding is formal
  • Formal Dress - dressy but not black tie
  • Cocktail Attire - he wears a suit or sport coat she wears a cocktail dress
  • Beach Formal - for an elegant beach wedding; it implies colorful semiformal dresses and summer suits
  • Beach Chic - sundresses & slacks and polos
  • Island Festive or Festive Attire - sundresses & island shirts slacks to shorts
  • Jacket Required - can be added to of the less formal dress codes if you would like men to not wear shorts and add a jacket [*]Flip Flops Required, Beach Casual, Sarong Style or Tropical Attire - flip flops paired with in-fomal but wedding appropriate wear like sundresses and khakis with white linen shirts. but be forewarned guess my end up in tshirts and shorts

Now, I didn't know what half of these meant without the definition next to it so you can say the phrase on the invite and what it means to you or if you have a wedding website put the definition on there or if you are sending out a newsletter it can go there as well. Hop ethis helps cheers.gif

Great definitions! Totally using this! EVERYONE is asking me what to wear!
