We have been asked by a lot of people what they should wear whenever they receive a black tie invitation. 

For men, its extremely easy and basically they just need to wear a tuxedo with a black tie. If he doesn't own one then you can simply rent one. If the invitation says "black tie optional" then he can wear a tux but he can also wear a dark suit. 

For women, the rules are not as strict. Black is a no fail dress color for a wedding like this, but you can experiment with color, jewels, fabric, and more!  You too may want to rent from a service such as Rent the Runway, since formal gowns can be expensive. 

Here are some of our favorite dresses we've recently found!
