wedding attire wording
Posted 03 January 2008 - 03:33 AM
My wedding is on the sand on the beach, and the place just has a palapa and I'm renting a dance floor (which willl be placed on the sand), but I want an elegant beach wedding - like how people get dressed up on the beach in movies in Havana or Miami or wherever...
Was thinking "Tropical Cocktail Attire, jackets & ties optional" -- to encourage women to wear warm weather cocktail dresses and men to wear linen or lightweight suits if they have them, and otherwise to just come dressed nicely in a dressy shirt and pants, without being too hot or uncomfortable. But then I'm wondering if I should just skip putting anything, and if people will just assume they should dress like they would for a summer wedding? I don't want people to come too dressed up and then be hot and uncomfortable, but I don't want it to be just sundresses and polo shirts either...Should I skip putting something on the insert and just write some dressing advice on my wedding event webpage?

I would probably just put it on the website. Then, you can include an insert with your invitations that directs people to your wedding website for more information. You can phrase it in a cute manner on the website ... "tropical cocktail attire" or "beach chic" or "resort wear." I then when on to give examples on my page.

So what do I wear to the wedding? We're calling it Beach Chic - no need to wear a ballgown or tux, but its still a wedding! Ladies, a fun summer sundress, skirt or capris would be perfect. It may get chilly at night, so think about bringing a pashmina or light jacket.
Guys, linen pants or khakis are great with a short sleeve button down or hawaiian shirt. No ties or shorts please :-)
Be kind to your feet - we will be walking in the sand. Flip flops are appropriate for everyone, including the bride and groom!

I "oopsed" and did a very similar thread without searching first, but I think I'm gonna stick with the Beach Formal wording, along with the description above.
