I used pretty formal language on our invites and then wrote “Outdoor reception to follow immediately”. I hope that the formality of the tone combines well with letting people know we will be outside means people showing up dressed appropriately (ie not in jeans!) but also ready for the site conditions.

Yes, I think appropriate is nicer and still gets the point across:)

eh, it’s better to tune it up now than have to deal with mad ladies with hunks of grass on their shoes 😉

Are there any areas in particular that you think people will be walking on? Could you get some kind of surface to put down in heavy traffic areas? Can you get cheap flip flop baskets together?
