    So i am going to order my invites tomorrow..having a hard time with the wording but even more so with how to list the attire. dont want to write casual because I know people will think that means flip flops and sundresses, dont want to write formal because I can imagine some people going all out in sequins..sooooo...how did you write yours?

      Hmmm, I am nowhere close to doing this yet ... what about something like

      Dress to Impress: Semi-formal beach attire

      That's all I got ...I'll keep thinking!

          I've read "beach casual chic"...that's kinda nice.

            I didn't put attire info on my invites and opted to just have it on our wedding website. Only because there were so many things..rehearsal dinner, church, reception and farewell bfast....on the website I used whatever the resort stated the attire was for that specific venue then wrote something cute like "beach chic" as defined by Google as blah blah blah. I think beach chic is perfect for invitations - if anyone looks it up online they will see it means no flip flops, shorts etc.

              I was thinking of putting "resort chic."

                Hey Karen... your wedding is approaching - only a few months to go! Hows the planning?

                I like "Beach chic". What about 'island chic'?

                  So, Karen -- Did you decide? What did you end up using?

                  Well, and IF you are still thinking about it, I wanted to throw the old standby "Cocktail Attire Preferred" into the ring, in case you want something still on the classier-side, but not "over the top" formal. That is what I am going to use for my AHR, which is a bit more casual since the hours are from 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm/during the day, but it's still taking place in a ballroom, so it needs to be a blend of formal and casual. I'm hoping most everyone has a pretty good understanding of "cocktail attire" means...

                  Anyway, just a thought! Good luck!

                    I like the idea of putting it on the website. Or what about on the response card or information card.

                    Something like

                    "reception immediately to follow"
                    "beach chic attire
                    "

                      We used "sand between the toes elegant" ... not sure what that means, but hey no one showed up in a Speedo, so I figured people got the point.
