It’s always the question, what should I wear when attending a wedding? Some people spend hours for shopping and looking for the perfect dress or outfit so they can dress appropriately and not underdress.

The Black Tux has a suggestion for you. No matter what’s the formality of the event, they have a suggestion of how you can dress nicely and dress as the event asked.

For me and as a wedding planner, my rule of thumb is something that you can wear comfortably.

–Ladies are always suggested to wear a semi-formal dress that fit with the season but not super sexy when attending a wedding. Long dress or short dress is depending on your body type. Some ladies carry a long dress nicely but some don’t. So choose something that would fit you comfortably. You are suppose to wear the dress, not having the dress wear you.;-)

–Guys are usually easier when it comes to choosing the outfit. I would say always go with a button down shirt and dress pants. Also, depending on the formality of the event, suit and tie are always the nice combination and won’t go wrong.

Check out the wedding guest style guide provided by The Black Tux on their suggestions on wedding guest attire. Since it’s summer time, I’m sure you as the wedding guests will have maybe 1 or 2 or more weddings to attend.

Have fun shopping and attending the joyous celebration!

It’s always excited to see photos and videos after our happy clients wedding. We wanted to share a highlight video with you all from one of our favorite weddings from last year. A great memory and happy celebration of Christine and Ripan’s wedding at the beautiful Bently Reserve in San Francisco. We hope you’ll like it!

Few months ago we shared the spring and summer colors for wedding 2016. And just few days ago, Pantone released for the first time, 2 Pantone Color of the Year 2016! We are happy to see the soft and romantic blending of the two shades: ROSE QUARTZ & SERENITY. The definition for of the two colors:

An inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.

The Pantone color for the past few years had been strong and bright. We can’t wait to see any brides and grooms who will be using these two colors for their wedding in the coming year! Whether your style is classic and elegant or rustic and vintage, these beautifully blended colors will fit it all.

Because we are excited about the colors, we put together an inspiration board just for fun. =)

Happy Planning!

If you are planning for a wedding in the Spring and Summer 2016 and haven’t decided yet on your wedding color, maybe the Pantone Top 10 colors for Spring 2016 can help you. I like these soft and dreamy/creamy colors which will mix well with a romantic and dreamy wedding style. Even well match if you are having a summer wedding and wanting something to soften the summer heat.

Two days ago we shared a personal vow from our recent groom. Today, I want to share another beautiful and well written personal vow from a bride’s perspective. This special vow that I wanted to share with you today was written by our sweet bride from last year who had her beautiful wedding in Yosemite. This vow not only is beautifully written but also wisdom for a healthy marriage. Just few days ago, she and her hubby celebrated their first anniversary. I’m sure many more happy and sweet years to come, and this vow will stay strong in their happy marriage!

Yosemite Wedding

“I HAVE SEEN THE BEST OF YOU,
AND THE WORST OF YOU,
AND I CHOOSE BOTH.
I PROMISE TO LOVE YOU,
EVEN WHEN I MIGHT NOT LIKE YOU.
TO RESPECT YOU,
EVEN WHEN I DISAGREE WITH YOU.
TO RESPECT THE DECISIONS YOU MAKE
FOR OUR FAMILY.
TO NEVER GO TO BED ANGRY,
EVEN IF WE STAY UP ALL NIGHT.
TO NEVER GET COMFORTABLE,
TO LEAP OUTSIDE MY COMFORT ZONE,
WITH YOU.
TO COMMUNICATE WITH YOU,
AND NOT SHUT DOWN.
TO STAND BY YOU
IN EVERY STAGE OF LIFE. . .
WHEN THINGS ARE GOOD OR BAD,
WHEN WE ARE LAUGHING OR CRYING.
WHEN SURROUNDED BY
FAMILY AND FRIENDS
OR WHEN IT’S JUST YOU AND ME.
I PROMISE TO NEVER LEAVE YOU.
YOUR HOME WILL BE MY HOME,
YOUR BED WILL BE MY BED,
YOUR CHILDREN WILL BE MY CHILDREN,
YOUR GOD WILL BE MY GOD.
PLEASE TAKE ME TO BE YOUR WIFE/HUSBAND,
YOUR PARTNER,
YOUR LOVER,
AND YOUR BEST FRIEND,
FROM THIS DAY FORWARD,
IN THIS WORLD AND THE NEXT.
I LOVE YOU.”
