Wedding is at a lake cottage. Invitation said picnic and dancing afterwards. I was told semi-casual (they indicated they didn't want tee shirts, etc.). I am going to wear white bermudas, a top similar to this one (mine is navy, tiered front with flutter sleeves), and sandals. Can my husband wear shorts also? I am assuming so. I really wish when people had these "different type" weddings they would specify more clearly what they want their guests to wear.

I'd wear a nice sundress, not too casual but comfortable. I'd pack shorts and sandals/comfy shoes for changing into later if needed.
No MAS.

I'd say he could wear shorts, but he has to be quite the fashionable dapper man to pull them off. I say that because of the shoes he'd have to wear (not sandals). I think boat shoes would be okay, with a tucked in shirt.
I'd say khakis and a short sleeve top would be better for hubby. I'm from the camp that I'd rather feel over dressed than under. And khakis or seersucker would be most appropriate. Think.. The Hampton's during the day

IE:
brooks brothers.digby.com or Lands End..

I think he would be fine in bermuda shorts, a Tommy Bahama-type shirt, and topsiders.
I think that top is really cute but I'd probably err on caution's side and wear a casual sun dress. I would feel weird wearing shorts-even Bermuda- to a wedding.

Just heard from BIL. He is wearing shorts, so shorts it is.

If you still have any lingering concerns, perhaps you could contact the couple getting married or the bride's family or something to check. Just a thought in case you're still wondering even a little bit as the date gets closer.

Sounds like a fun, relaxed wedding celebration. Have fun!

I'd send a great gift, stay home, and wear whatever I want.

Picnics at weddings aren't my thing. Not much about weddings is my thing.

Ummm...no.

If a woman is overweight, yes, capris are not going to hide that fact. But if a woman is fit and trim, capris are not going to make her "look fat."

I agree cute young trim women look great in them, kind of like a skinny jean. I remember when the two fashion women from England (Rinni - think that was her name - and the other one) were on Oprah one of the things they told women to stay away from because they cut them off and add pounds to their shape is capris. At the time I thought they were nuts. . . then I got observant and went over to their side. Just my take.

I love the way Kris Jenner dresses. She's always very age appropriate and doesn't look like an old fat lady. She wears what she likes and looks amazing 99% of the time. I think it's more about the presentation and internal confidence that makes or breaks a woman.
