    @GreenEyedMoon: Tell them what to wear. It’s important. Plus all of those woman who want to see their men in tuxes will have the correct amunition to make them dress up!

    I would like it as a guest if you added that last part.  I am always looking for a reason to pull out some of those great dresses that I have.

    I actually think it’s very important and appropriate to tell guests how formal your wedding is.  I would stick to the traditional phrases… black tie, black tie optional, semi formal, casual etc.  That way everyone can interpret it how they’d like with a general guideline.

    I wanted to have a masqurade or carnival type dress-up as well since our wedding will be around Mardi Gras, but alas the fiance didn’t like that!

    Definitely. First those not extremely close to you, may or may not fully know how formal your wedding will be especially with the masqurade theme. I would put it first, before the description of your theme. As a guest, I always appreciate knowing the formality of a wedding.
