Politely ask : No shorts at ceremony

Recommended Posts

Hi Girls,

 

How can I say on my invites that I would like No Shorts at the wedding?

I want to be tactful and not sound nasty.

 

Also, where should I put this request on the invite or my hotel information card? I am assuming the hotel information card. But I want people to see it.

Thank you:)

i think the hotel info card. and don't be afraid to be pushy...you want the pics to look amazing and shorts won't cut it if that's not the look you're going for. we are putting "beach elegant attire--no white please" on the actual invitation and we went more into detail in our website. i put that the resort doesn't allow shorts in the location where the reception is being held so that way they have no choice in the matter.

We stated the desired dress code on our website - beach chic - and explained what we meant by it. We stated what we didn't want just to make it clear, but unfortunately you can't guarantee that people will listen!

 

Ps. Martha Stewart explained in her latest Weddings edition "if you want to stress the importance of the style of dress (...) place the information in the lower right corner (of the invitation), or on the reception card."

Usually you mention a general dress code such as "cocktail attire" or "semi-formal," etc. I think I would put something generic on the invitation, then go into more specifics on the web site or somewhere else. From what I've heard, you should keep your invitation fairly simple.

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
