Spiffy Bow Ties!

I was never a huge fan of bow ties, but how fun are these vintage bow ties! Perfect for just the groom or all the groomsmen. For the anything-but-ordinary-man, check out etsy shop – xo elle. Each bow tie found here is repurposed from a vintage neck tie. Ties feature adjustable bands, amazing vintage fabrics, and are freestyle (self-tying). Perfect! All photos below from their shop except the top left which was taken by Heidi Ryder.

Or…if you are feeling more adventureous, you could make your own! This couple created their own pattern for fabric manufactured just for their wedding and then used the fabric to create bow ties – and sashes for the bridesmaid dresses! Love that! (They are so cute!)
