Oh, I had a lot of this. I put a note on the website and just made sure I responded individually to everyone who asked with a clear, detailed description. Well, “cocktail affair” worked quite well!

I would say I’ve been getting lots of questions concerning attire – here are some of the answers to questions we’ve gotten.

then just put what ever you want no one will really no if anyone asked them or not!

I definitely think you should put something on the website. Maybe:

Wedding attire: Cocktail attire is requested. Ladies may want to bring a light sweater or wrap, as it might get chilly in the evening.

I would put up a note on the website…On one weding website the bride actually had picture examples of what to weat and what not to wear it was cute and informative at the same time. She was having a beach wedding.

I’m having a similar issue! The ceremony is outside so my friend thought it was more casual due to the fact the ceremony is outside (?). Its a wedding, I’ll be wearing a gown, my FH is wearing a tuxedo, cocktail attire please:-)

I’m with you on this one! I don’t know why people think that an outdoor wedding = casual. I’ve been to really gorgeous outdoor weddings that outdid some indoor weddings I’ve been to! I think putting something on your website is a good idea, but my rule of thumb is always to wear a dress to a wedding, and my husband will never wear anything less than a shirt and tie at least!

I put a note on our website (our venue requires men to wear jackets and ties and I don’t want anyone to be turned away), which I think is an approrpiate way of handling it. I can’t believe people think shorts are okay!!

@bakerella: Seriously! I have really never understood the “uncomfortable” argument when it comes to clothes. So long as they aren’t too small, they shouldn’t be uncomfortable! And even if they are: IT’S A WEDDING!!
