I’m attending a wedding on a cruise ship this august. About half of the guests are going on the cruise, half are just attending the ceremony and cake reception and then leaving the ship.
The invite says resort chic and it’s a noon wedding. I don’t want to look over or under dressed. Have you ladies ever heard of this? Google images isn’t super helpful right now.
What do I and my husband wear?

It’s usually along the lines of maxi skirts/ dresses or daytime dresses/sundresses. For guys it’s usually slacks and a collared shirt.

I would think a maxi dress for you and a button up and khakis for him would be appropriate. Resort chic makes me think of the attire seen in promos for fancy carribean resorts.

Resort chic makes me think of chiffon maxi dresses and Lilly Pullitzer-style short dresses. Definitely khakis and a polo or button up for your husband.

I read that as a nice summer dress with sandals.

I honestly have no idea what resort chic means, and I cannot envision anything at all. Ski resort? Caribbean resort? Golf resort in the Scottish Highlands? I hate made-up, non-sensical dress codes!
If it’s a summer event, I think of linen suits or perhaps even searsucker for men, and a floaty, floral silk chiffon dress and stylish sandals for the ladies. I am a great fan of traditional dress codes as generally accepted defitions reduce confusion and worry amongst guests, and that, ladies and gentlemen, is the purpose of a dress code.
