Since our wedding isn’t quite casual, but the local requires more comfortable clothing, we do have some suggestions for guests:

Please do:

  • consider summer-weight khakis, sundresses, and other “resort-style wear”
  • remember that it will be warm, with the temperature possibly as high as ___

Please don’t:

  • wear overly formal or overly casual clothes. We want you to be comfortable!
  • consider high heels–it’s likely you’ll get caught in the grass/sand/whatever.

I know this seems a lot to consider, but we hope you’ll understand while you’re packing your bags to join us at the beautiful Kualoa Ranch!

That is EXACTLY what I’d put on mine.

actually if you are getting married in hawaii – what you described is “aloha wear” or “aloha attire” which is casual flip flops but dressy at the same time – guys usually wear light colored or khaki linen pants with colorful light collared shirts or aloha printed shirts, women wear sundresses or aloha dresses.

thats what we call it in hawaii!! 🙂 maybe put in a little definition of aloha wear?

At the bottom of the invitation I would put:  “Resort Attire”  No one wears jeans at a resort… its all khakis, linen and hawaiian shirts 🙂

Then on your web site (they are really helpful) say exactly what you want them to wear.  That way it wont take up too much room on your invitation.

Good Luck!

I am having “Black Tie Optional” on my invites 🙂

i second “Resort Attire” or “Resort Casual”!  What you described is exactly what it means.
