Diary of a Charleston Bride | Black by Vera Wang

Recently I have started to feel overwhelmed with the ever-growing list of things to do and have begun to delegate more. Luckily Carter has taken on the task of the groomsmen apparel. Because of geography and his friends being spread all over the country we have decided to do something straightforward and go with renting tuxedos from Men’s Wearhouse. We did this primarily online. Their website is very user-friendly! Carter was interested in a classic yet modern look and BLACK by Vera Wang really captured that. We really like the clean lines and the two-button jacket. Now all the groomsmen need to do is contact their local store and set up their fitting.

Carter himself decided he wanted to wear a white dinner jacket. We both went to College of Charleston, where the tradition is at graduation for the guys to be in white dinner jackets, girls in white dresses. He thought it was a nice way to tie in something from our shared past and sets him apart from the rest of the groomsmen.

Personally I love the white dinner jacket look- what are your thoughts??
