I would recommend Talbots, Ann
Taylor/Ann Taylor Loft, and J. Crew for ideas. Then I would go shopping at TJ Maxx or Marshalls.

I would talk to the bride and see what she is wearing, you

If you don't have an opportunity to talk to your cousin before the wedding, I would err on conservative and feminine. A cardigan and simple shift dress would work well as in this outfit by Banana Republic (they have great outfit ideas already put together!):

White House Black Market also has great dresses over which you can wear a regular work blazer (and dress it down by rolling the sleeves up or wearing a short-sleeved jacket):

You can even do dressy pants, metallic sandal heels and a billowy blouse if you'd like to opt out of the dress. French Connection is a great site for dressier tops and pants like this outfit:

Hope this helps and have a great time!

This sheath dress from Banana Republic would be great with your coloring! (and it's on sale!)

I would wear a simple necklace or bracelet, and definitely add a thin belt around the waist. Probably a neutral color, or if you're more daring, an orange or yellow!

Belt suggestion:
