Hi- my husband and I are attending a wedding in a few weeks in Minnesota. It's held on a Saturday evening outside (on natural ground, so no heels). The invite (and the bride's sister) says it is semi-formal.
I wore this dress to semi- formal wedding last Summer with the same start time except the reception was on a dance floor, not outdoor ground.
There will be dancing at this wedding so I wasn't sure if I should go with something shorter...although my hubby isn't much of a dancer, so I'm not even sure how much dancing the two of us will do anyway
Oh, weather is around 70 during the day and gets cooler at night.
Also...what about my husband? Martha Stewart says a dark suit is a must in the evening, but he wore this (in the photo) at the wedding last summer and seemed to get away with it.
What's your advice?

Semi formal to me is anywhere in length from below your knees to your ankles. You could get away with a mid length dress for sure. Long dresses outdoors are just asking to get dirt all over them!
In regard to suits , you could get away with the lighter suit if you were to wear a tie.
