    You could split the difference and just call it semi-formal Smile

    I agree with semi formal – sounds similar to our wedding & that’s how I would have described it!

    say semi formal unless you are inviting people who define formal as “the socks that they are wearing match their birkenstocks” then tell them formal. lol

    (I live in eugene OR, people wear this stuff to the OPERA!)

    Id also say semi formal.  Since its a Friday night Id opt for formal but it really depends on the attire, the room set up and most importantly, how you view it.  Cocktail attire I would say is more semi-formal than formal.

    ETA – If someone said a wedding was informal to me I would think day or afternoon wedding, no assigned seating, sun dresses for girls and slacks and a shirt for guys, no timeline, not much dancing or traditional stuff

    Typically, night weddings are formal or semi-formal. Ours was similar to yours, and considered semi-formal.

    Ohhhh, love it.  On a side note, how are you incorporating birds into the wedding?  I have two on my cake…

    Sounds like a standard semi-formal wedding to me. There’s nothing in your description to imply that it is either casual or formal.

    The bird “guest book” idea is so cute!

    I vote semi-formal too. If you were attending you wedding as a guest, what would you wear? Use this to gage maybe?

    Sounds quite semi-formal to me. But I also think you can just choose formal or casual. Your wedding seems like it could go either way.
