Here is my favorite anecdote.What are some of the weirdest / most cryptic / funniest dress codes you’ve been served on an invite?
someone on slack mentioned “Summer Chic otherwise known as cocktail attire with a summer twist! Colors encouraged, ties optional.”
I once got invited to a “beach formal” wedding…
When my wife and I were getting married we had someone host an engagement party for us. These people are super, super swanky, and were hosting the party at their beach mansion. They had two steel drum bands, a gorgeous food spread, etc. Unbeknownst to us, the attire for the party was "coastal casual" (we learned when we received the invite). Well, I wore a suit, no tie (Eidos AF blue fresco, and Inglese butcher stripe, if you must ask), and most people got the gist - cream sportcoats, etc. Well, one guy thought coastal casual = boat attire, and showed up in flip flops, a ball cap, a PFG fishing shirt, and cargo shorts. His wife was horrified.
