Your outfits sound fine. If you are not sure, why not give her a phone call?

I was about to tell you that e you might be over thinking this. But then I read that the reception location is a secret. I’m sorry that’s just dumb. I would address it directly with a phone call.

“Hi X, Darling Husband and I are so excited for your wedding, but I’m a little confused on the details. Can you help shed some light on the venue/theme so I can coordinate our attire appropriately? “

If she refused to tell you, (which seems incredibly silly to me unless she is some famous actress who is avoiding paparrazzi or something) I would then go with “Well, I’m thinking that Darling Husband is going to wear… And I have a blue dress, blah blah blah.. Do you think that’s appropriate? I really want to make sure I’m not cold/sweltering/overdressed, etc.” 

If she’s still no help… I’d then pull out the Trump card. “Ok, well since I now know I should be prepared for anything, I’ll wear jeans & trainers just in case you make us do something loopy.”

$100 says she’ll tell you after that. ; )
