Need help with wording

My FI and I decided to go with the wording "Comfortable Formal"...does that make sense...others in nomination were


Semi-Formal


Semi-Casual


Smart-Casual


California Formal


Dressy Casual


Basically, the look we are going for, is an un tucked in button shirt shirt, black slacks and a pair of reefs sandals or for ladies a dress with sandals or something like that


 


Any thoughts?

Hrmmm...if I read "comfortable formal" without your explanation, I would have no idea what that meant (once you describe it, it totally makes sense).  To me, what you describe sounds like "smart casual" to me.  But regardless of which you choose, you'll be getting questions about what that means :)  I think you should go with whatever sounds best to you.  If you have a wedding website, maybe you can put the phrase of your choice with that explanation.

Semi-dressy?


Dressy Resort Wear?


Dressy Beach Wear


California Dressy?


Dressy BBQ? :-)


I agree with JD, I had no clue what "comfortable formal" meant either. Your description sounds like "California Dressy" to me. But, I know that not everyone would catch that, especially if they're not from California. A description on the website would definately be a good idea. Also have your parents and your wedding party spread the word via word of mouth.


Good luck!
