Q: How do we let guests know what our dress code is going to be?
A: The easiest way to fill guests in on the appropriate attire is to include the dress code -- "black tie," or "cocktail attire." "casual attire" or "jackets required" -- on the lower-right-hand corner of the invite or on a separate enclosure card. Also include details about the attire for all the events on your website.
