I have no idea what dressy casual means, but I would assume cocktail attire, so I don’t know why you wouldn’t just put cocktail attire?

I would wear a maxi dress and strappy sandals. I might even straighten my curly hair! 

Would you consider writing casual chic? Or am i the only one who says chic? ;-P

I would think no jeans. Khakis for boys, sun dresses for girls.

Dressy casual means (to me) that anything in between (but not including) jeans and cocktail attire/jackets is OK.

For a backyard ceremony, I’d never do cocktail.  And I’d never wear jeans and shorts unless it was specifically requested.

Slacks or skirts suggested (or some variation on that) is probably OK to say too (at least on your website).  Fancy restaurants do.

Yeah, dressy casual is kind of an oxy moron.  Casual chic is better.

Dressy casual to me might me a cute shorts outfit or sundress. I would say business casual or casual chic 🙂
