    I think it depends on the groom/groomsmen also.  There are some guys that can make a bow tie like really good!

    Personally I prefer the look of a tie but Fiance thinks tux=bow tie.  I don’t know which is better, it’s just a personal choice.

    I think it depends on the formality/style/theme of the event.  I left that decision to Fiance and he picked tie.

    The only person i have seen able to pull off a bow tie is Chuck Bass, and he looks just plain silly sometimes. but i do think he would have to try the bow tie on before you totally nix it.

    I like the neck tie the best, but on very well cut tuxes, a bow tie looks all James Bond fab.

    I’ve always thought bow tie would be the more clasic look with a tux, but it seems like Fi prefers neckties..

    I agree with krissycake– if you’re looking for a very formal look, the bow is the way to go. Although neckties have become very popular in formalwear the past few years, they do impart a suit-y look.

    I like the necktie, but Fiance wants the bow tie.

    I personally prefer the necktie than bow tie look.

    Mr. Green: The bow tie is a more classic look. It definitely depends on the formality and time of your event. If you’re getting hitched on the beach @ 10 am, it’s not necessary. But for an evening wedding in a church with a formal ballroom reception afterward, a bow tie will make just the right statement. Avoid the white dinner jacket, 007…

    I think you should ask you Fiance, over Thanksgiving his mom asked him this question and he was actually quite opinionated about it. I just assumed he would want a necktie, surprise surprise he wants a full on tux with a bowtie.

    Really depends on the tux and the groom but generally I prefer the necktie.

    Neck tie with a vest, Bowtie with a cumberbund, but I can’t remember the last time I saw someone wear a cumberbund. My men are wearing vests.
