That said, there is no law against coming to a dress wedding in a tee shirt and sneakers and saying that you feel fine and doing the same during a formal night on a cruise will likely make a similar impression.

I disagree with your analogy.

Some folks have to "dress up" all the time and when they go on vacation prefer to dress as casually as possible. Quite different than accepting an invitation (and going) to a "dress wedding".

I've been on a number of cruises and the only "formal night" on some of them was the Captain's dinner. I simply wore a black skirt as opposed to slacks. No big deal. And lots of the folks there (both men and women) were not "dressed up" at all.
