    I love a man in a bow tie, it’s so classic,  but I think that the Euro tie is more modern.  Does he want to be classic or modern?

    I think he should wear whatever he’s comfortable with, you want him to be confident and happy when you get married 🙂

    Ooh, tough. I like them both but I think I lean more towards the Euro tie.

    If you are wearing tuxedos I would go with the bow-tie.  Its classic and when would you get to wear one?

    I think he should wear what he wants to wear, im sure you are wearing what you are comfortable in. In the end if he doesnt look ridiculous in a long tie then let him go for it, that way thats one less stressful thing for him on the day

    Good luck

    I let my husband pick out what he wanted to wear … he decided on bow ties, since he wore ties all the time for work… I think he and all the groomsmen were quite handsome… The bowties they wore had small dots on them so it wasn’t a straight black tie… Thought I’d post a pic my handsome groom 🙂

    I love Euro ties…. and I actually hate bow ties, so I am completely biased in my choice!

    However, I would let him pick what ever he is most comfortable in.  If he feels akward or uncomfortable during the wedding, it will be hard to hide it (especially in pictures)!

    I love bowties.  Classic James Bond.

    I really love the look of a bowtie, too, and I tried to encourage Darling Husband to wear one for the wedding. Ultimately, I left it up to him, and he chose a long tie, and I was OK with that. I vote let him wear what he wants, even if you don’t like it. You probably wouldn’t like it if he forced you to wear a necklace you hated with your dress. <3

    I think bow ties look really classy for tuxes.

    I’m hoping my hubby-to-be chooses to wear a bow tie. I just think it gives a more “wedding” type look, and it may be the only time he gets to wear one!

    I think the normal, ‘Euro’ tie would look better!
