  • Wedding: July 2009

We said "Bride and Groom Together with their families invite you to share their joy and support their love as they exchange their vows and unite in marriage.

Saturday, July 18th, 2009 at 4 o’clock.

Location

Dining, Drinks and Dancing immediately following under the stars"

Then we referred people to our website where we explicitly said that shoes should be appropriate for grass and dirt.

Hope that helps!

Because we don’t have a website, we are including an information card with our invitations. This is how we worded it:

Weather permitting, our ceremony will be held outside. We would like to suggest that you wear appropriate shoes for walking in the grass.

Hope this helps!

What about if you state "garden reception to follow." I’m sure most people will know well enough to plan ahead, and I doubt your grandmother would really wear stilletos

We also put a note on our website stating that the ladies should leave the heels at home.

Oh and just so you know it should be "two thousand ten" not "two thousand and ten" one of the bees wrote a post about how its grammatically incorrect- just a heads up! I had it wrong too.

I would put a note on your website to leave the heels at home.  I’m also providing flip flops for people both for dancing and for those with the stilleto problems.

My daughters wedding is on the beach and we did the usual invite wording and after the date put "on the shores of Lake Michigan" and the name of the beach.  Flip flop time!

Combination of stating it’s a "garden ceremony" plus website for more Internet savvy guests plus phone calls to people like grandma ought to cover all of your bases.
