“The majority of men who wear bow ties do so because the majority of men do not.”
Love that quote and that is why I think it is such a perfect time to rock the bow tie – your wedding day – or even engagement photos :) Some of my favorite grooms that made a stylish statement…
And check out these stylish groomsmen!
So, where can you buy fabulous bow ties? I’ve seen some fun basic bow ties at Urban Outfitters, American Apparel and J Crew. There are lots of great online stores also that have a much broader selection such as Ben Silver, Lumina, Brooks Brothers, and Bowties and More.
Another cool thing about Lumina Clothing is they will work with you to create custom bow ties for your groomsmen! From Lumina, Our ties come in several widths ranging from skinny (2″), to narrow (2.75″), to wide (3.5″) along with two styles of bow ties. We feel that the bride and groom should have the chance to choose from many different fabrics, whether they be silk, cotton, linen, taffeta, etc. We work with the couple to pick out fabric that is unique and matches their personal style, and in many cases exact colors of the bridesmaid dresses. Not only can groomsmen wear their tie or bow tie during the wedding, they can keep it and wear it for future special occasions. How cool is that? And what a great gift for your groomsmen!
Etsy also has some great options. One of my favorite stores is Xoelle. Laura is the creator here and she re-purposes vintage and unwanted fabrics turning them into fresh new bow ties for the modern man.
Oh, and if you do decide to go with bow ties for your wedding – or even engament photos – here is a handy chart to help you tie your tie :)
