The wedding is actually at 3 p.m. - then dinner and dancing in the barn - kind of transitioning between afternoon and night. Sorry I said "night" as I looked up the forecast and it's pretty chilly for that night - no idea what it will actually be late afternoon/early evening (and no idea how long it will go on).

The dress is actually "kinda" long, mid-calf - unfortunately, I have foot issues so can't wear the cute heels like I used to - I'll be wearing flats.

No, you'll look well-groomed, not old. But they won't keep you warm. For that, tights, whether plain or some interesting pattern.

LOL, it's psychological - I'd have something on my legs

Amazing! From April of 09 people have been wondering about pantyhose here and still no resolution.

No, never.

I was required to wear them as part of the performance uniform in my music ensemble in college, and I don't think I've put a pair on since. I'm either bare-legged, or, if it's seasonally appropriate, in opaque tights. I don't wear thigh highs and never did. I'm quite tall and long legged. Finding tights that are actually long enough and don't have a crotch that hangs is challenging enough. The average thigh-high would probably end up hitting about knee-high on me.

Per Flamingo's question, I would go bare legged, personally (we just went to a wedding, and I was bare legged), but wearing hose won't make you look old.
