What To Wear, What To Wear...

Dear fashion gurus of the Internet:
I need to know what to wear this weekend to Fleighund's wedding. I haven't been to a lot of secular ones, so I don't know the protocol. How formal is this likely to be? It's an afternoon, outdoor event, near the water, with a luncheon to follow. It's been very warm lately, in the 80s during the day, so I don't know if my "Jackie O" outfit will work. It's probably exactly appropriate but it's also fully lined and makes me very warm. I wore it outside, to another wedding, in January, in The Rockies and didn't feel the need for additional protection from the snow.
Do I wear it anyway? Most of my dresses are black or black based - of course, so is the suit - am I going to look out of place because everyone else will be wearing pastels or florals? I have skirts and blouses, but I don't think they're really wedding worthy. Plus, I need shoes to match and most of my formal shoes are, you guessed it, black.
I can go shopping but I need a direction to start looking in especially as I'd have to do it alone and not have Tarzan's opinion. Lend me your wisdom!

This is me, asking your advice.

Since I'm not going, I'm no help. I told you earlier: you'll look fabulous anyway you dress.

Survey says black with silver. You and your 80 degree weather makes me depressed. I'm hoping global warming is true 'cause it's -10 outside and that's before windchill.
