I'd wear jeans with boots/booties & a navy cashmere turtleneck and a statement piece of jewelry...probably a bracelet.

OP: Realizing you want to look nice and feel comfy since the temp will be low. . . just remember this: people will always remember how you made them feel, but they will not remember what you wore.

Just choose something you like and have a good time celebrating their wedding day.

Lots of great input on this thread! Thanks so much, y'all! I was kind of clueless by what she meant by "backyard chic."

The wedding is in Nashville, Tennessee. I'm thinking it's going to be pretty cool but not freezing cold or anything. I don't think I'll be comfortable in bare legs...and on top of that, my legs are pretty pale right now, so I don't mind covering them up with tights anyway. She told my husband that khakis and a nice button-down shirt would be fine, so I think I might feel a little underdressed in denim.

So, I'm thinking a nice sweater dress with tights and boots or booties.

That sounds nice to me. Be sure to have an extra wrap or shawl or something available to put on if it does get too cold.

If I am afraid of cold..
Even a nice sweater or coat (W/wo a great scarf) over maxi skirts n cowboy boots will do a country autumn wedding trick.

I went to a backyard wedding last year in October. I wore a sweater dress with tight leggings and boots. The wedding was outside and the reception was in a tent. It did get quite cool out, but they also had heaters. Maybe wear or bring a nicer coat.

I wouldn't wear a dress in those temps. And certainly not heels in a back yard. Back yard means relatively casual. Pants with a dressy tunic, and tunic-length sweater or jacket.

Like Ruth, I say NO dress. With the temps the OP quoted, I'd be frozen by later in the day.

A nice pair of pants (tights or not) along with a nice blouse and a blazer or a dressy tunic would be my choice. No high heels either, they sink into the ground if you're walking on grass.

The temperatures are slated to be 39 (low) to 56 (high) that day, but the wedding is at noon, so I'm guessing it will be toward the higher end of that. What to wear?

People still wear pantyhose? I wouldn't even know where to buy them any longer.

I think for 'Backyard Chic' tights are totally in.
