I am having mine on a beach and I said it would be warm and I wanted guests to be comfortable, but that they would be included in a group photo so please look nice (or something similar). I think that you could create a wedding website and put something on there about what attire you think is acceptable. You could say dressy casual, hopefully they will get the hint.

@BeeG35:  My wedding will be in Cabo.  It is not on the beach but it is outside and overlooks the water

I put this on our website about the dress code.  I didn’t want people showing up with bikinis and beers.  I wanted to keep it light when telling people what to wear!

What will I wear!?

The event is semi-formal, but anything you want to wear we are sure will be ok. The bride requests you refrain from wearing a wedding dress, but if that’s really all you have to wear, she prefers that to you going naked!  You know us – we’re not uptight. We only ask that you keep it classy for the ceremony. Men: Slacks, button down shirt and a tie Women: Semi formal dress or sun dress
*Note: These are just suggestions. We trust our guests to show up looking fabulous!

@BeeG35:  I had a Destination Wedding and I really didn’t give any direction on what to wear….I trusted that most people knew how to dress!

Here was my venue

This was a group shot……they all did just fine!

We listed our dress code as “beach chic” and are letting people take their own interpretation. I anticipate seeing men in Kakhis and button downs and women in dresses ranging from fancy sundress to cocktail dress. 


I think we’ll have some men in shorts (fine with me, it’s gonna be hot!) but I hope not to see jeans. Sandals for men are also fine by me. 


My wedding will be at a fancy resort in Mexico, beachside but not on sand.
