I’d probably wear a dress or skirt regardless of the setting. I have this weird thing about wearing pants to weddings, which I’m sure not everyone shares.  You could probably dress it down a little with casual shoes and a wrap or cardigan.

Is it a summer wedding or spring wedding? does it start early in the day or carry on late into the evening?

I think a knee length dress would be fine. (amandapolis- I agree with you about the pants thing, for some reason I feel that way too). 

If it is a casual wedding, I think you have a lot of options to choose from. and the spring attire is now out in the stores to have to look through.

I think a lightweight knee-length jersey dress would be appropriate. They are pretty casual, yet still look nice. And are cool, too. I have one from Banana Republic outlet I am thinking specifically of. Some cute sandals would go nicely, and I agree, a cardigan is a good cover up if it’s a snip chilly.

I’d wear a sundress, cute flats/sandals (but not flip-flops), and a cardigan or shawl, with colorful but understated jewelry.

Last summer we attended a friend’s wedding. It was in a park, the couple is super laid-back, and we understood that it was going to be very casual and dressed as such. (I wore khakis and a nice knit shirt). We looked like complete slobs! Everyone else was is dresses and dress shirts. Better to be slightly over-dressed then under-dressed!

If you still want guidance, talk to the Maid/Matron of Honor. She should know.
