I’ve been thinking about the attire thing as well. 

Firstly, if you DONT want people in jeans…. then I wouldn’t write “Country Chic Attire Requested”.  

Also, I wouldn’t write Requested…. it seems too snooty or something, doesn’t sit right with me. 

I would write either:

“Dressy Casual Attire” or “Semi-Formal Attire”  in a small size font, italic, in the bottom right hand corner of the reception card.  

Are you worried that people would wear jeans?  Make the invitation a bit more formal, and people will think they should dress up.  

I never in my life thought anyone would wear jeans to a wedding, until the most recent wedding I went to.  My FI’s cousin – her invite wasn’t formal, it was really casual… and like 20 people showed up in jeans and cowboy boots.  Mind you, it was a small farming town wedding – but still.  I was pretty horrified, and this is what sparked my interest in including the dress code on the reception card too.

I agree. Do not put requested.

I think cocktail chic attire would be good!
