Semi formal for some is definitely not the same as semi formal for others

@Treejewel19:  Semi-formal doesn’t really say community center/barn to me. I would say simple cocktail dress with heels. But if you are truckin’ around a farm, I would wear flats to not fall over in the grass. That really does confuse me though.

Wear your fancy flip flops with rhinestones and jeans without holes and you are all set to go lol.

Just kidding I think the wedding sounds laid back and casual but they don’t wnat guest to show up in sloppy jeans and probably wants them to wear nice jeans and a shirt, or a simple laid back dress. But then adding the uggs and rubberboots makes it confusing and kind of is mixed messages.

Anyhow what I take away from that is don’t be slob, don’t wear ripped clothes, and it’s laidback

Ugh.  I’d hate to see that on an invite.

I’d probably do closed-toe shoes with a wide heel in case you’re walking in grass or mud.  I’d also dress up a bit, but I’d dress up for any wedding.

I prefer to be over dressed than under, but I would probably wear my best jeans, a dressy top and closed toed wedges.

@Treejewel19:  I have no clue… are jeans semi formal?! It seems like jeans are acceptable as long as they aren’t ripped/torn… And gardening boots are acceptable? Are you hiking through muck and mud??

I remember in college the mini skirt + Ugg was a fashionable look… 😉

Normally I would say a cocktail dress but it sounds like you could get away with a more casual dress or nice jeans and a blouse.

I would wear a nice sundress (knee length) with wedges.  And bring an umbrella since it sounds like you’ll still be outside if it starts to sprinkle…

I would probably not even read too much into the instructions and wear what I would normally wear to a wedding – I’d probably wear a dress with pretty flats or wedges (because it’s a farm).  I don’t think my husband would ever not wear a suit to a wedding, so he’d be in a suit.

If you are a girl who like to wear heels, I suggest to try to do wedges instead. That’ll be better to walk around a farm – you won’t sink in the soft ground!  I wore low wedges and a flowery dress to the last farm wedding I went to (over a year ago).

ETA: I will admit that I find the way they expressed their dress code is pretty weird.

That is a whole lot of words. I would wear a sun dress with a sweater if it will be cool (in March here it will be 80+ but I know other places that is still winter!) and flats. I would not wear heels if it is at a farm because even if the stuff is inside somewhere it is likely walking there won’t be fun in heels. I had a friend with a wedding that sounds similar and lots of people in dark jeans and boots!

@Treejewel19:  Ha! Yes, they do! I just checked DSW online and they don’t have the ones I bought anymore since it’s been too long. But it’s possible, I promise!
