I have a family member getting married early next year in Key West as a destination wedding and on their website it says “Island attire encouraged” What exactly is island attire?????? This is a very casual wedding so i’m not surprised by this, would a long maxi dress with islandish prints/colors be appropriate?? Oh it also said shoes optional. I’ve googled island attire and i get alot of grass skirts……..i am not thinking this is what they meant and i have long since put my coconut bra away.

- Wedding: January 2013 - Harbourfront Grand Hall
I have a Destination Wedding in the Keys (Largo) next year too! I’m wearing a hi-lo pink snake print dress. WAY more casual than what I would ever wear to any other wedding, but they also encouraged a laid back attire on their website. And IMO they always dress more casual than other people at other weddings we’ve attended with them, so I’m not worried about offending them by being too casual, I’m more worried about being fancier than the bride in all honesty.
I know it can be a bit confusing, everytime I tell someone we’re going to the Keys they’re like “oh man, totally different lifestyle down there!” I’m looking FW to it! 🙂

Very casual.. I would think….what you would wear to a restaurant right on the beach or golfing. So let’s say….a sundress, polo shirt and shorts for guys, sandals, short pants, hawaiian shirt….

Perhaps they mean summer dresses or sarongs.. or maxi dresses.. Anything breezy and flowy.. and for men, guayabera shirts should be fine.. those are those short sleeved, button up, cuban style shirts.. with khakis…

Sundress or maxi dress and sandals would definitely be appropriate if they are calling for “island wear”. I grew up on an island in FL and that’s practically the uniform… 🙂
