I put:

 formal attire requested

Most people should know what to wear for a saturday evening affair.

Formal attire required?  Black tie attire required?  Jacket and tie?  I think any of those will drive the point home.

@Crigger5:  I’d put “black tie optional” so they know that people will be wearing tuxes but it’s not required.  They’ll know that coat and tie is a minimum.

If the venue isn’t requiring this dress code you should not be putting it on your invitations.

I think based on the venue, most people would have enough common sense to wear a coat and tie.  I’ve never seen anyone arrive to a wedding without.
