Cocktail attire seems most appropriate. I feel like *MOST* people assume that for an evening wedding anyways.

I think I once read that it’s not proper etiquette to specify attire in the invitation – I would put “cocktail attire” as well.  One of our friends requested “formal attire” on his website and I had to look up what that meant (suits/ties and/or tuxes for men, floor-length gowns or a cocktail-length gown in black, gray or brown for women).  I think “cocktail attire” is more self-explanatory.  Good luck!
