    If you want people to be dressed up, I think that you need to mention the “dress to impress”. As for whether to say coctail party or not, I think it depends. You sound like you are leaning towards the house party vibe, so I would just say NYE Party. You know your friends, but some people may think that “Cocktail Party” won’t be a real party all night long kinda party ya know? I don’t know if what I’m saying makes sense. The last NYE party I had I passed out apps, wine, champagne etc. but everyone just dressed how they liked. I think it would be really fun to get invited to one that was “dress to impress”

    I think it’s fun to have everyone dressed up. Just because you’re having it at your home doesn’t mean you can’t as people to dress a little nicer, it’s NYE – dressing up is pretty standard.

    I agree with the PP that a “cocktail” party sounds like a 6-9 thing rather than and all night party. Wait to send invites out till mid Nov. People will be making their plans for the holidays after Thanksgiving so you’ll want it to be on their radar.

    I would automatically assume if I were invited to a NYE party that it would be a dressy affair but like you said if you’re guests are not dressy people and if that’s what you want then you should definitely mention it on the invites. If it’s not the norm for them they are not going to assume.
