    Your event seems pretty formal to me, so I don’t thing long dresses would be out of place at all. You have a few elements that are less formal: earlier ceremony, buffet serving, etc., but the aesthetic of your event, including your dress, is pretty formal. 

    And for a late afternoon event, he can certainly wear a tux if he prefers, but a dress suit is also fine.

    I think long chiffon gowns would be absolutely lovely with everything else you’ve described! And your guys could go either way on tuxes or suits. Personally I’d go with suits.

    I think the long bridesmaids dresses will be more appropriate than knee-length ones. You will be dressed very formally and so should they.

    However, I think a tux would be a bit overboard for an afternoon wedding. They are more appropriate for evening wear. So a nice suit with a waistcoast/vest would be perfectly fine (and the groomsmen will probably appreciate it, too).

    I got married there!!!! The Darlington house is BEAUTIFUL and you will love it!! We actually had a formal, evening wedding there, guys in tuxes, but the girls were in knee length.  Honestly, either long or short will work! Its a venue that is as formal or causal as you make it! These were my girls (guest photos):

    Here were the groomsman in their tuxes (and me!).  I had a cathedral veil too! You will not regret it! It feels so bridal! Here’s another guest photo!

    I think the long chiffon BMs dresses would look very elegant and would not be out of place at your venue.

    As far as the guys, I don’t have strong feelings either way. Which means you should go with what you want! ๐Ÿ™‚
