I would still dress nicely for an outdoor wedding. 

Maybe you can put “Semi-formal attire” on the invitation?

The formality of your event is construed on your invitations. Also, if you’re having a wedding website, you can let people know the tone of your event so they will know how to dress. Unfortunately, there’s no way to tell people what to wear really. Some people will still show up in jeans and they will feel ridiculous when every one else is dressed appropriately.

Ugh. This is my life right now too. Mrs.ChubbyBunny is right – the more formal your invites are, the more the message will come across. And you can write “semi-formal attire” on the invites as well.

Friends kill me sometimes. It’s a wedding, people!
