I’m having a backyard wedding on my families farm and we are going for the rustic, woodland feel as well. I tried to keep my invites more informal. Saying ‘together with their families’ instead of listing ‘Mr. and Mrs. Blah blah’, ‘invite you to celebrate’ instead of ‘request the pleasure of your company’, that sort of thing. Etiquette wise it’s still proper, but more relaxed. I also said ‘brunch and fellowship to follow’ (we are doing breakfast but you could obviously sub in dinner there) I thought adding the fellowship part sounded more relaxed and intimate. The invites themselves also have wood grain detailing and pretty rustic flowers and im tying them up with twine. I got them from http://www.minted.com and I LOVE them. They have a whole ‘rustic’ section. Hope this helps 🙂

@NYCowgirl:  I am including an insert that will have some type of working to let the women know that heels aren’t probably the best idea. I figured that better then having it on the invite since it’s extra information anyways.

Unfortunately I don’t have wording figured out yet. I’ll be in cowboy boots too. I’m just afriad if I say casual – everyone will be in jeans when I would rather ‘dressy casual’ …like sundresses. I know I can’t control what they wear but I know I would rather know than not know if it were me as a guest. gah.

Hopefully someone else has some ideas….

I’m having a similar wedding, (elegant, rustic, outdoors) though not at a barn (I wish!), and I’ve been describing it to people that I would wear something similar to an Easter service. I’m from a small town though so maybe that means something different to you guys. Just a thought…

@NYCowgirl:  

You could say something along the lines of: 

‘Semi-formal attire, please’

or

‘Semi-formal attire requested’?

 

Hope this helps 🙂

Me too!! Were getting married at a campground, later in the evening we are having a big bonfire, so its pretty casual, but dinner and the ceremony are still a wedding so i’d still like everyone to be a little more formal.. Its kind of weird to be wearing a big fancy dress and all my guests are in jeans or shorts and flip flops. I’m still working on the wording myself.
