i’d really like to have FI, and possibly the rest of the groomsmen, wear a bow tie. my worry here is that at other weddings i have been to, the guys take their jackets off for the reception, which is fine if you wear a tie because it comes with a vest. what does it look like when the groom parties with the jacket off wearing only a bow tie?
anyone have any pics of this situation? thanks!

If you search Google images for “bow ties wedding” (without quotes), you’ll find some.

When wearing a Tuxedo, a man either opts for a Cummerbund or a Vest. The type of tie goes with whichever style of shirt he has chosen… traditional wingtip collar or laydown collars. Bowties can be worn with either style shirt. Ascots with wingtips (ala traditonal Morning Suits), and regular ties (windsors) with the more modern laydown collar.
I am older, so I don’t mind my man to go for the most conservative, traditional of tuxedos… with a Cummerbund, and whichever shirt & tie of his liking.
OR the more modern look, is ok by me as well.
Mr TTR owns both… altho he tends to prefer the traditional look… says it is more James Bond classic (you can GOOGLE – James Bond – for lots of photos)
The guy who goes for the modern look (vest over cummerbund) tends to take off his jacket, and leave his vest on… and he may very well ditch the tie.
Hope this helps (somewhat),
