Palm Springs seems to be the hot spot of the moment for everything from festival weekends to destination weddings. With so many couples choosing the desert to say “I do” the question of what to wear for guests is becoming a real question.
With most weddings, guests use the time of day and the directive of the couple to decide between a floral sundress and a floor length gown but in Palm Springs there is more of an “anything goes” mentality. So if you find yourself holding an invitation what should you pack? Remember, when in doubt always reference the dress code on your invitation but also use these tips to help you pack accordingly…
- Don’t be afraid of color. Palm Springs is a city rich in mid century architecture which lends itself to pops of greens, blues, and oranges. A dress in one of these colors will always make sense.
- Maxi dresses can go from day to night. Thanks to the laid back ambiance and year round sunshine Palm Springs is a generally casual town. A cute maxi dress can be worn for a mid day ceremony or even an evening soiree.
- Stick to a block heel. With so many outdoor venues and uneven ground a block heel will be much easier to walk in (and more comfortable) than a stilleto.
- When in doubt a jumpsuit is always right. I am all about a great jumpsuit as an alternative to the classic dress. Culotte style options are a great laid back option while a strapless, wide leg style will be a hit for a more formal affair.
Happy Wedding Season!
