what to wear to formal nite may wedding?

my bf's younger brother and his fiance are getting married this spring at a winery. the ceremony will be on the formal side, in the evening (5.30pm), and outside. the winery is near the sf bay, so the temp may drop from quite warm to quite cool.

the invitation recommends a shawl/jacket for the ceremony. i just ordered a 3/4 larry levine all weather satin trench jacket in champagne as a dressy warm cover-up (on clearance, thank you HSN!).

what kinds of dresses are both versatile and appropriate for this event? due to some body/skin issues, i have a few requirements:

1) knee length
2) covers the shoulders (cap sleeve ideal)
3) high neckline (collarbone exposed ok)

i know that negates a majority of the cute frocks out there, but i'm desperate and hope you can help ;-)

brands, links, store suggestions...anything and everything would be much appreciated.

thank you so much!
