I'm assuming that since you asked you have some desire to look appropriate. You certainly don't have to wear a tux and a tie isn't necessary for a "casual" wedding. I suggest slacks, a nice long sleeve button up and a sports coat. Plan on showing up in a sports coat and taking it off assuming everyone else does the same. A short sleeve button up really isn't appropriate for a wedding (or anywhere else in life unless you are a high school math teacher). Will there be some idiot there wearing a short sleeve button up or a polo, probably? Do you want to be that idiot? Probably not.

Another vote for slacks, nice long sleeve shirt, and sport coat. Personally, I'd wear a tie but I wear one every day so am not uncomfortable.

You should at least bring one with you in case otehrs are all wearing ties.

Don't be an idiot, dress appropriately and respectfully. What are you 16? Put on something nice when you go out. People respect a well dressed man.

Yep! Especially for an event like a wedding.

"Casual" on invitation means you aren't expected to wear one of those accursed neckties.

casual would mean "business casual" for me. Even though that's still considered dressing up for me.

Casual for a wedding would mean business casual to me also.... not something like flip-flops and a tank top, that's for sure!

Yes, I'm pretty sure casual means business casual and I consider a polo's and short sleeve button up shirts business casual but I think I might opt for the long sleeves. Many of you suggest wearing a coat, did I mention it's going to be outdoors at 3:30 and probably 95 degrees, I don't think wearing a coat makes sense considering it'll be way too hot.

Where do you work that polos and short sleeves are business casual?

I guess it depends but as someone who very recently hosted a wedding under very similar circumstances, we did not expect anyone to wear a coat and tie. A few did but they were mainly family members. We did not want anyone passing out in the heat or so miserable they couldn't enjoy the ceremony. I'd go with business casual. A nice, short sleeved, collared shirt neatly tucked in/belted, khaki or similar pants and nice, clean polished shoes.
