My best friend is having a brunch wedding at a beach location over a holiday weekend on a Friday. She’d like the attire to be like sundresses for women and pants for men, nice daytime-wear. She’s worried that people will show up in shorts and t-shirts since it’s beachy and in the morning. Any suggestions for how she should phrase that on the invites? Thanks!

Here is an idea from a different wedding blog:
Write on your website:
So what do I wear to the wedding? We’re calling it Beach Chic – no need to wear a ballgown or tux, but its still a wedding! Ladies, a fun summer sundress, skirt or capris would be perfect. It may get chilly at night, so think about bringing a pashmina or light jacket.
Guys, linen pants or khakis are great with a short sleeve button down or hawaiian shirt. No ties or shorts please 🙂
Be kind to your feet – we will be walking in the sand. Flip flops are appropriate for everyone, including the bride and groom!

I saw one that said something like, "This is a very special occassion for us. Please respect that and dress accordingly. No jeans, shorts or T-shirts please" It might have been worded a little differently, but not much.

I would call what you’re going for "dressy casual." Maybe just say "dressy casual" on the invite and if she has a wedding website, have a more thorough description there. I think the people who are most likely to be guilty of coming dressed too casually are probably on the younger side—they probably use the internet and so would see the note.

What about "Brunch attire suggested"
