Everyday Etiquette – Party Attire Wording

Question:

Is it still appropriate to put the dress attire on invitations such as "Business Casual/Holiday Attire." I still see it on black tie events, but have not noticed attire being mentioned on most.

Thank you,
Debra

The Everyday Etiquette Answer:

Debra,

Thanks for the question. It is definitely appropriate to add the attire wording to the invitation. When I had my store, we put attire wording on many of our invitations. Since this is a holiday party, some of my favorites are:

Holiday Casual
Holiday Attire
Festive Attire

I hope your holiday party is a huge success.
