Just curious to know!
Did or will the groom and groomsmen wear a bowtie or a necktie for the wedding? Was there any particular reason?
I will have to see what Fiance likes once he starts trying tuxedos on, but I think I like the formality of a black and white tux, no color and a bowtie.

@SimplyMrsC: I’ve decided to wear a necktie. Wearing a bowtie makes me feel like a clown or something, I dunno… just doesn’t fit my style.

Necktie! Bowties seem so…junior prom to me.

Bowties are classic but they’ve become kind of comical today.

I guess we will be different since Fiance has decided to wear an ivory bowtie with his tux. Thankfully, he looks really handsome with bowties (and neckties as well). His GMs will also wear nice bowties but I don’t know how if all will look great in them lol!

hahaha all the bowtie comments make me laugh because Fiance and I absolutely love them. I think they’re classy but fun, and we’re also from the South, where wearing a tie is more “junior prom” than a bowtie!

We had neckties and ordered them from Dessy so that they matched the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses.

Necktie. Bowties are cool, but I could not imagine one on my SO, it just seems wrong.

I LOVE bowties! My husband and his Groomsmen all wore real bowties (no clip ons, please!) and they looked awesome.

@pinkandsparkly: That’s what Fiance is going to do with his GMs. 🙂

Probably neckties if they wear ties at all.
Fiance hates ties and is always mad when he has to wear one to work. He prefers vests and his vest collection challenges my shoe collection.
We might just give them funky vests to wear instead of ties.

Neckties with suits or suit-ish tuxes are very “in” right now. We’re at the start of all of our friends’ weddings and I have not yet seen a bowtie. These weddings have been from casual-semi-formal, bride and groom ages 25-29.
HOWEVER- our wedding’s theme is ‘classy and formal or something.” We’re doing black tie optional (just because I felt like it would be a bit dick for me to make my 23 year old friends get their boyfriends in tuxes) and, since my dad, the Reverend, and the DJ are all wearing bow ties, you bet my fiance will be!
If I were you, I would decide based on the feel of your wedding and how your guests will dress. The wedding party should always be dressed slightly more formally than the guests. So, if all guests are coming in suits and ties, then the groomsmen should at least have boutineers, etc. If it’s a beach wedding and guests are in cargo shorts, a suit and tie would even be odd.

@MrsBroccoli: I plan on having a very formal wedding and I think the bowties would be great. I haven’t yet figured how to word the invitations lol.
