Festive means dressy. I'd bring the tie and if no one is wearing one you can take it off. Better to be prepared. She needs a great dress but it doesn't need to be formal. No ball gown necessary :-)

That's what it means in Maine ;-)
maybe she's born with it, maybe it's chlorine

What is the name of the swanky restaurant in the city? or which neighborhood is it located? age group? ("when in Rome")
You are probably good with what you are going to wear, you'll need at least a suit jacket.
Bring at least a card for the couple. (throw a gift card to crate and barrel in there as a small gesture, if you are really close to the couple)
If the invite says no gift then don't bring anything. Always love the idea of donating to a charity that's important to them though if you really want to do something.
Sweet spot for the party (havent been there in a couple of years, but the drinks flow easily there). Good choice of attire. I think the black thing can be a bit much. Men with color added to the wardrobe sends a confident message. I am sure your wife will look good in a dress or whatever she chooses to wear.
Have a great time!
It is a party for their engagement in a venue that has been rented by friends. Sounds like the friends are trying to do something special for the couple and want the guests to put an effort into how they dress. Sounds like you have done just that and will be great.

x2. Since the invitation specifically said "no gifts," I would think it downright rude to show up with a bottle of wine, or even a gift card. A "Congratulations" card would be fine. If you are VERY close with the honorees of the party that you feel you must get them a gift, do so at another time than this party.
