@Corilee13: how about just saying “No Jeans Allowed”?  That’s the only way I would trust everyone to not try to find a way around it…. but I’m also known to be blunt….

I’d say something like “Semi-formal attire, no jeans or sneakers please”  At least, that’s how we handle it with the semi-formal at the school I teach at! haha

You can’t you really can’t It IS impossible. You can try to word around it but it’s almost a given at least SOMEONE is going to wear jeans. FYI I’m totally opposed to jeans in every way but I’m still expecting a few idiots to show up in jeans.

I think you have to suck it up and say “formal mascarade ball attire” or something.

@Zinzerena:

100% agree.  Except I will add “absolutely” before No jeans.

@Corilee13:

Wayyyyyyyyy to vague!

Can’t you formally make it a ‘formal’ occasion?

Could you blame it on the venue?  Could you have like “Due to venue restrictions, guests wearing jeans will not be admitted” or something maybe?

A little editing (sorry, had to!) :

**Per the policies of the venue a dress code is required for all photographed events. As this is obviously a photographed event please dress in semi-formal to formal attire (no jeans, t-shirts, shorts, sneakers, etc.) as I want everyone to be able to come and enjoy the night with us. Thank you. **

I cut out the “a” in “is a obviously…” and added in “shorts”.  Hope that helps and it sounds perfect!!!
