    I would write it on the website exactly how you described it here- relaxed semi-formal attire.

    You can’t tell people what to wear. You can say it’s formal, semi-formal, casual, black tie, etc.

    But if you really don’t care, don’t bother tbh.

    In your case, since you don’t really care that much, I wouldn’t say anything. But you can always slide it into the reception information page if you want. I’d just be pretty general though.

    if you don’t care, then i don’t think you need to.  i usually know what to wear to weddings based on time of day and location but i know that most people are not used to attending as many weddings as i have (most people have not hosted/cohosted over 12 baby showers either) so it might be helpful.  i find it helpful when atttending certain events like nonprofit dinners where it can range anywhere from business attire to formal.  if i’m not sure, i usually wear a plain-ish dress that can either lean more casual or dressy.

    @zoso90:  On my website I mentioned that it was a beach wedding, and it will be warm, so dress accordingly, but that we would be taking a group picture, so I would like everyone to look nice (worded differently). If you are talking about something like the wedding attire will be formal, semi-formal, casual, then yes, but actual colors or types of clothing (like only dresses for women) then no

    I am having a small casual beach wedding, I put resort attire recommended on my invite Inserts. a few people have called me asking what would be appropriate. honestly as long as they don’t wear swimsuits, I’m fine 😉

    I am in a similar situation. I don’t really care that much what people wear – but I’ve been getting a lot of questions about it, and there’s an attire section in the template for my wedding website and I love sex and hte city so… I did something cute and hopefully not too controlling:
