Wediquette Wednesday: Is it customary to include suggested attire for a wedding invitation?

Each Wednesday, we tackle wedding etiquette. At times, it’s a reader question or one from a colleague, friend or family member and other times we’ll cover a popular issue. (Note: Questions may be edited for clarity and brevity.) 

 

Question: We are working on the wording for our wedding invitations. The wedding is going to be formal with a lot of political dignitaries and military personnel. Is it customary to include suggested attire for a wedding invitation? 

Answer: It is always a good idea to include suggested attire on invitations, whether it’s for a casual cocktail party or a wedding. Giving guests a roadmap is one of the primary jobs of the host. Your guests will appreciate the guidance. Be as specific as you’d like, and for example, state “Formal Attire,” or “Black Tie.” This indicates that floor length dresses, evening pant suits and tuxedos are all appropriate. Work with your stationer to craft language that corresponds to the preferred attire.
