Getting married is one of the best and most stressful days of your life, but the work that you have to put in leading up to your special day is incredibly strenuous. You and your bride-to-be will have to find a caterer, a venue, a bartender, and a DJ, and the last thing on your mind will be picking out the perfect bow tie. We get it. That’s why we’ve put together a little guide to help you find the best tie for your wedding day.
Always Consult Your Bride
Remember, the wedding day is important for both of you, but it’s far more likely that your bride has a clearer vision of how she wants the ceremony to look on film. Most brides even pick out dresses long before you propose, so be ready to accept any suggestions she has. That said, be sure to discuss your preferences with her. If you love a wild and zany bow tie from Wits & Beaux, show her a picture! She might end up loving it as much as you do, especially if it incorporates her color scheme.
Groomsmen Can Rock Patterns
If your bride insists on a traditional black tie, ask her about your groomsmen’s attire. She might be a bit more flexible with patterns and colors for your best man than she will be for you. After all, the two of you will be the ones featured in the wedding photos, while your best man gets to hold your jacket. Remember, groomsmen don’t have to have ties that match yours. You should stand out from the crowd! Typically, brides will be happy with your groomsmen’s attire as long as it complements the colors her bridesmaids are wearing
Just because your bride has an idea in mind doesn’t mean you should accept it without complaint. Remember, the day is special for you, too. While you might want to bend over backwards just to reduce her stress levels, you should still have some freedom to pick a tie and accessories that you’ll love. Ideally, look for a bow tie that you’ll wear again. At Wits & Beaux, we have some of the best and most vibrant dapper bow ties on the market! Better still, we have an extensive color collection, so we’re pretty sure you’ll find something she’ll love as much as you will.
Consider a Separate Tie for the Reception
Your bride will probably change out of her wedding gown for the reception, and you should have the opportunity to change as well. While you probably won’t need to change out of your suit, switching your tie can give the illusion of having to outfits ready to go. Best of all, the reception makes it possible to embrace a more casual look. You’ll be cutting up the dance floor with your bride, so why not show a little flair in the process?
Be Rebellious With Your Socks
If your bride is absolutely adamant about you wearing a formal black bow tie, you can still break tradition. Ditch those black dress socks and order a pair of our tall socks and show off your individuality in a subtle way that’s sure to meet the approval of even the pickiest bride. While your socks may not be visible at all times, you can bet they’ll show when you’re sitting down!
