Brides: if your groom is wearing a bow tie for your wedding (or thinking about it), don’t miss this post! Today we’re sharing three tips for wearing a bow tie so he can rock one in style. We’re also sharing inspiration, showing you how to tie a bow tie, and we’re giving away a bow tie and suspenders set to one lucky reader from Element Boutique! It’s all inside…
Tips for Wearing a Bow Tie
1. Wear a bow tie only if the style suits you.
Don’t wear a bow tie just because it’s “in” or a trend; wear one if it actually suits your style (and you feel comfortable wearing one).
2. Pick a color that coordinates with your palette.
If you’re not into a bright or poppy pattern, pick a solid bow tie for your wedding. A black bow tie paired with a white button down shirt and suit is a classic look that’s always in style.
Also, don’t let the bow tie be a distraction: if you’re wearing a suit jacket or button down shirt that has a bold pattern, go neutral on the bow tie. Likewise, if your attire is more subtle, select a more striking bow tie. If you’re selecting bow ties for groomsmen, coordinate their ties with the bridesmaid dresses.
3. Learn how to tie it before the ceremony.
Practice tying the bow tie before the big day. Here’s a handy guide to help:
