My rule of thumb  is to always dress to a higher level if I am not sure.

Business casual can means so many things. I would pick a LOCD- little other colored dress -with a cardigan or jacket.

@julies1949: Agree, wear a cute dress, or a skirt and cute top. 

To me, business casual means nice pants and shirt, or casual skirt and top, but a casual dress would also work.  Just look polished, and you can’t go wrong.  Also, maybe talk to some of the other women attending to see what they’re wearing?

If your Fiance is in a suit, you can wear a the little “black evening dress”  w/ a shawl.  Check out The Knot.com or Martha Stewart for some examples.  I have a couple of night on the town dresses that can easy be dressed up for a wedding w/ some great accessories and shoes.

I agree, business casual can mean so many things!! If it helps, I am going to a work conference in TX later this week, and since its going to be really hot, I am planning on wearing a skirt and cute top, and I also have a couple of simple dresses I could wear. For a wedding, I dont’ think I would wear pants as a woman, but dress slacks are considered business casual

I think they definately could have worded that differently. It’s a wedding not a job interview! But since your Fiance is the best man…do you know the bride well? Maybe you could tell her you are having trouble coming up with an outift and ask her exactly what she had in mind.
