Black Tie vs Black Tie Optional

I want everyone to be dressed formally at my wedding.  Men don't need to wear tuxes, a dark suit is fine.  For women, I want only floor length dresses.

I'm confused because from what I understand, black tie is tuxes and floor length gowns, so the men don't have an option.  Black tie optional gives men the choice of not wearing a tux but a dark suit, but also gives women the option of wearing a shorter dress if they wanted, right?

Which should I request for my wedding?

    If you are that set on the women being in floor length dresses then do Black tie.

    "See website for attire" might work. Then describe what you want.
