    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."

          i would put it on the invite somewhere at the bottom but i would put a dress code instead of saying no shorts?

              You could put a fun twist on it "We all know your legs look good gentelmen, but please keep them covered on my wedding day so I won't be jealous"

                    I would put it in the invite to make sure people pack properly.

                      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.
