I would wear a dress and heels or black pants, nice top, and cardigan. I think it’s similar to what you would wear to work at an office, but a step up.

Here’s something a little more detailed.

@mepayne:  I agree. Wear a dress that’s not too formal (no satin, etc.) and bring something that could dress it down like a sweater.

Semi-Formal or After Five means that tuxes are not required, nor are long dresses. An evening wedding (after 6 PM) would still dictate dark suits for him, and a cocktail dress for her. Daytime semi-formal events mean a suit for him and an appropriate short dress or dressy suit for her.

hope this helps.
