I added it to our wedsite.  My ceremony and reception are at the same location and will both be outdoors.  The reception however will be under a tent and we are  not putting down a floor so they will be seating on grass.  I’m also having flip flops available to those who may need them.

Don’t tell your guests how to dress. They’re grownups — or, if they aren’t, leave it up to their moms to tell them how to dress. You just need to make sure they have the information they need to decide appropriately for themselves. If “Clinton Park” might be misconstrued as having a pavilion or other indoor facility, you might consider wording the location on your invitation to clarify that it is “out of doors at Clinton Park” — or “under the open sky at Clinton Park” if you prefer more flowery language.

I disagree with the pp and I always appreciate when there is a recommended attire posted on the couples website. It makes planning an outfit so much easier!

Our ceremony and reception are outdoors under a tent. On our wedding website I simply stated it was all under a tent and they should keep the weather in mind when getting dressed for the day!

I agree with a note on the website.

Though, for what it’s worth I compromised with my mom to make my wording on my invite like this:

Together with our families

we invite you to join us celebrate

the sweetness of life, love, and friendship

at our outdoor wedding

 

It gives the hint about being outdoors, without being in your face.
