Hey Brides! We’re getting married in Key West. Our ceremony is on the beach, but the reception will be in an indoor ballroom. We’d like this to still be a classy affair, but comfortable enough for the beach setting. For our wedding website, we’re having a little trouble describing the “wedding attire”. Any fellow beach brides that can give some suggestions? Thank you!
So before trying describe it there, think about what you think of people wearing. I’m having an outdoor wedding near a lake and woods, reception is outdoors as well. My FH is not wearing a tux or even a full suit, so we’re not going formal. I pictured people coming more or less in church dress. For my website I said dressy-casual and to avoid pointy heels.
If your guests are going to literally be walking on sand for the ceremony, appropriate footwear is the most important thing. I would be really clear about that point so everyone understands, and then just put a picture of your reception venue so they can see the level of formality that would suit.
