We aren’t having a black tie wedding by any means, but it isn’t casual either.
The groom and GM’s are wearing black suits. My gals are wear this dress:
Ok, so I don’t want tuxes and I don’t want jeans – what is the appropriate term for the “feel” I’m going for? I’m afraid even “cocktail” is too formal, but it’s the closest thing I can think of.

business casual? Khakis and polo shirts or dress shirts?

I don’t really think you need to provide any sort of dress code! From what you’ve described, it sounds like it’s pretty typical for a wedding, and I would assume that most guests would dress that way anyways!

Ya I think typical wedding attire would be perfect! Are you worried about guests wearing jeans? Does this happen in your area?

@ejs4y8: Eeekkk – I certainly don’t want “business casual” at my wedding. That’d sound like we’re going to work!
@FMM: I haven’t been to THAT many weddings, but the last one I went to (here in San Diego) had at least 3 people wearing jeans.

hmmm that’s a toughy. what you’re describing is more casual than most weddings i think, (i think cocktail attire is pretty standard). how about something like “Summer Semi-Formal” or “Dressy Casual”

I would agree that I don’t think you need it stated. I feel if you do, it might be more confusing for others. The jean thing isn’t very common (except for those 3 that you saw), but I’ve never seen anyone wear jeans, I would think they knew better, I mean common on its a wedding people!

@heather25: Nope, it’s a one piece dress.
Ok – no explaination needed – thanks!

We are thinking of including a little note at the bottom that says something like, “Please respect the traditions of the (chapel name) and dress accordingly, No jeans, shorts, tshirts please”. Its mainly because certain extended family members have been known to show up for nice weddings in crocks, t-shirts, and ripped jean shorts :/

I don’t think you need to state a dress code! I think most guests go in between sundress and cocktail style for weddings, based on the time of year, time of night & the location. I really wouldn’t worry about writing one thing or another because in reality, they’re going to wear what they want to wear!

I went to a wedding that was “resort attire”… it was right off the beach. I wore a sundress.
