Bride2Bee12_30_2015:  You know your bridal party better than anyone, so we shall defer to your judgment. Still, a 4-page newsletter every 3 months until new year’s 2016? Even the most enthusiastic bridesmaid will probably be a little wedding fatigued by then.

 

Also, someone else made some good points on white tie. Make sure you’re 100% clear in your own mind on what that means before you put it in your newsletter. If I were a guest and I made sure to dress ultra-formal then arrived to find they really just meant “look evening-out nice,” I’d be piiiiiiissed.

hermom:  +1000000. I would be heading for the hills.

Also, this advice concerning white tie affairs is good advice. With newsletters and DIY centerpieces (At least I think I recall you posting your DIY centerpieces in a previous post), I’m sorry to say that this wedding is likely not white tie. Our wedding meets all of hermom‘s suggestions and we still aren’t even calling it black tie. I would be cautious about the dress code you tell your guests — If I was invited to a white tie wedding and it was not, in fact white tie, I would likely be very upset about purchasing a new outfit for the event!

Just out of curiosity, what on earth are you doing for five days?

Oh dear lord, it gets worse. You are having two weddings? No, sweetie. You are having one wedding (the one where you get married, that’s your wedding) and another giant five-day party with costume changes.

Bride2Bee12_30_2015:  Everything about this sounds more and more confusing. Two weddings? That doesn’t make sense. So one wedding you’re actually getting married at and one you are not?

It’s a wedding, not the State of the Union. If it’s genuinely black tie, you can put it in the bottom right hand corner of the invite, but I would make sure you’re actually getting married at that wedding. White tie is a step above black tie and black tie is rarely even done correctly. For a genuinely white tie event, the dress code wouldn’t be flaunted on a DIY newsletter.
