If you pay attention very carefully you may notice that there are actually seasons in Southern California. The biggest seasonal switch up that I look forward to every year is Spring. We usually get a little bit of rain amidst all the dry weather and the flowers, trees and foliage that come around March and April are simply magnificent. It’s stunning to watch the transformation in our own backyards. Along with this awakening comes a fresh approach to wedding attire. The wedding season gets into full swing around this time too so some of you may be heading out to a few celebrations. I love this simple, straightforward infographic from The Black Tux which outlines what is appropriate to wear based upon the style of the event. A couple other tips from us –
+Definitely do a little research on the venue before you go. If it’s outdoors on grass or somewhere a little more rustic be mindful of your shoes. No stilettos please! Flats or wedges work perfectly for al fresco weddings or bring along some heel protectors if you must wear heels. If it has rained recently be careful of long gowns especially in light colors which will show dirt more than a darker color.
+Yes, the days are warmer but the nights can still get very cool. Bring along a light jacket for casual events and a chic cropped jacket for a more formal look. I’m loving this gold jacket for cocktail or black tie. Personally I just throw my black leather jacket over a sundress or an evening gown.
+Guys, you have it a little easier but The Black Tux simplified things even more for you! Check out their infographic below for the best attire options for you this Spring. And they have you covered for every option with their suit and tuxedo rentals. Don’t be afraid to add in a little color or pattern with your accessories. I am loving the floral pattern ties and pocket squares I’ve been seeing on some of my grooms and guests this year.
And, just an FYI, this is NOT a sponsored post. I just really like The Black Tux! Happy renting!
