Getting married and having a reception at a private club that is very specific in the fact all guests must adhere to their strict dress code of business casual. How and where would you make notation of this for the invitations/rsvps?

Per club policy, business casual dress is required.

@KatyElle: Good one! That way guests know you’re not just being picky and they get how important it is for them to follow the dress code.

Unless you have seen people you are inviting show up to a wedding in jeans, this would be a none issue for me. Business casual makes me think work clothes, not sundresses. I would wear things to weddings that would not be appropriate for my office.

Business casual really just means no jeans. Do you think your guests will wear jeans?
I’m not neccesarily sure how to word it but if I read on an invitation that business casual dress was required I would think just dress pants and a nice top. That does not imply dresses for the girls and suits for the guys.

I also asked a previous poster about this. In a wedding invitation I would not use biz cas, simply because it could confuse women. I am an attorney at a business formal shop. Biz cas means that I can wear a skirt and blouse etc. Definitely not wedding festive.
For a country club, I would assume that jackets or tie are required. I would put that on the invite if you are worried about jeans. Or something like cocktail attire required.

I would avoid wording like “business casual”. say something fun, but that says dress nice….
We’re so excited to get all dressed up, we hope you’re too!

I like KatyElle’s inclusion of “per club policy” and I would definitely put something on the invitation about acceptable attire. At almost every wedding I’ve been to (including mine) there was that one odd duck who thought it was okay to show up in jeans.
