A Note About the Dress Code

What the heck does "Ranch Elegant" or "Cowboy Cocktail" mean?
Some people have voiced confusion on what exactly the dress code which we described in our invitation means. I understand your concern. It sort of sounds like we're having a costume party. What I've been telling people is to wear something you would wear to a nice dinner. The wedding isn't black tie formal. Cocktail attire is fine. I added the "ranch" and "cowboy" descriptions to keep with the ranch theme. The one thing I would advise is to wear comfortable shoes, something with a wedge or sturdy heel for the women. The ceremony and cocktail area will be on grass and there is a gravel driveway, so stiletto heels might be uncomfortable.
If you are still confused, keep in mind that I will be wearing cowboy boots under my wedding dress.
Whatever you do, don't come naked. It's not that type of party.
Hope this helps!

A Directional Preview

In a land far, far away,

There are rows and rows of fruit trees.

And two tall palm trees in the distance.

If you’re going to a shindig that’s scheduled for May 21st,

You’re not going to want to miss the left turn at those palm trees.

Now entering the Flying M Ranch.

Keep going down the road past the barn.

You will come to a bridge.

Proceed. You're on the right track.

This is not the end; it’s only the beginning!

In the distance on your right, you will see your destination.

But first you have to pass corrals,

And navigate turns,

On a long dusty road.

And after a couple of minutes you will be closer to your goal!

The house on the right is Middle Marker. The one on the left is La Paloma.

Today, and on the big day, we’ll be at Middle Marker, so we want to go right at the fork in the road.

And then you’re almost,
