We are having a large number (basically all of my guests, so about half the guest list) fly in from New England, some of which have never been to Texas.
Is it rude to have a page on our wedding website that gives guests an idea of what to pack for the weather in April and then a little note about what is acceptable to wear at the wedding?
I’ve made a page but haven’t made it public yet, I wanted to get ya’lls input first…
Here is what it says:
“What to pack for April in Texas”
The weather is usually pretty warm in Texas this time of year, usually high 60’s and 70’s in the middle of April. So pack light and comfortable clothes. But isn’t unheard of to have a colder day so feel free to pack a sweater and long pants just in case.
Don’t worry about what to wear to the wedding. Sun dresses, khakis or dockers shorts and polo shirts are all acceptable, no suit or tie required! Just remember that the wedding will be outdoors and on grass so wear comfortable footwear.

No, as someone who’s never been to Texas, I’d really appreciate a guideline.

As a New England girl myself, I think that would be really helpful!

I completely agree with the previous posters. It would be helpful to know how to pack when going to a region that one might not be familiar with! So as a guest, I would find your tips very helpful!

I think that would be polite, not rude. Great idea!

Thanks everyone! I just wanted to double check, I didn’t know if it would be rude to tell them what type of clothing to wear to the wedding…

I’m totally stealing this idea. My relatives are from midwest and california, so not quite england, but a few have mentioned needing long sleeves for my outdoor wedding. I should probably prepare them for… well the fact that april can really go either way here in Austin 🙂

I’m doing the same thing for our wedding. We are semi-arid and at a high altitude, and my family is in the midwest and fiance’s family is from the east coast. We’re warning them about the weather, the dryness, and the fact that you never quite feel like you have enough air here.

I would totally want that!

no, it’s not rude at all. That would be great to know if I was traveling to a place I’ve never been to.
