    I say let him wear what he wants to wear. I think bowties are fun. Think about it this way, if you fell in love with a princess ballgown dress and knew it was “the one” and he was like “that’s not right for the theme of our wedding” you’d be crushed, right? There are generally so few things that the men ask for when it comes to this stuff, you gotta go with it. Plus,men look adorable in bowties.

    My wedding is May 1, on a golf course in SC.  My Fiance and the ring bearer (his newphew) are both wearing pink bow ties.  All the boys are wearing seer sucker suits.  So, I definitely think a bow tie is appropriate.  What sort of suit are they wearing?  A tux?  A suit?

    i think a black tux with a bow tie is pretty fancy and formal, but if he wants to wear it, i would let him. you have to pick your battles!

    IF you want the wedding to be fun anyway why not just have him wear a suit and a fun bowtie? They make them in all kinds of fun patterns & prints & colors. Just cause he wants a bowtie doesnt mean he has to have a tux. Tux screams formal black tie event.

    I agree with @MissCamera, there are plenty of things you can do with a bow tie to make it look less formal.

    I’ll definitely post pics after the wedding!  Thanks!

    we’re having a small intimate destination wedding…and my fiance insists on going for the James Bond look – tuxedo, bowtie, everything! I’m totally cool with it despite that it’s not a super formal wedding. He’ll look good in whatever he chooses! So I think it’s totally okay, let him wear what he wants 🙂
