You should either change the title or the poll question to match them to each other. People often pick the poll option that answers the question in the thread title, and problems arise when the questions are opposite ๐Ÿ™‚

 

I would be fine with no tie, but I’m very laid back about these things.

I think it fits the theme to have no tie – casual/Western. If you were having a formal occasion, I would say it would be out of place.

No tie necessary. It’s going to be the best day of his life, why make him wear something he hates?

@langloiswedding2013:  I think your wedding needs to reflect who you are as a couple and feel true to your relationship. Why force him to feel awkward and uncomfortable on a day that is about both of you (not just you)? I totally get that he has no fashion sense – neither does my Fiance. But I love him exactly as he is and I’ve told him he can wear whatever he would like.

To disclose, we are getting married on a beach, but it sounds like you are having a casual wedding too. Critics be damned, what’s important is that the two of you are happy ๐Ÿ™‚

Confused by the question… are you asking if he should wear a tie or not? I said he should, but I’m not sure of the dress code. You say you’re having a country theme wedding that is a little casual. What do you mean by a little casual?! 

Usually (from where I’m from at least) there’s business casual? What are you expecting your guests to wear and how are you going to describe what they’re expected to wear? 

I voted that he should wear a tie… I think. I agree with PP that you should re-word the question.

as long as you’re making it clear to your guests that the wedding is casual, i think that’s fine. i know my dh would be annoyed if he showed up to a wedding in a suit and tie and was dressed more formally than the groom, but otherwise, go for it!

For a casual wedding I don’t think he needs a tie if he’s that opposed to it. Jeans on the other hand…wouldn’t be ok with me. Maybe you can negotiate, no jeans no tie lol.

@brendaparisbride:  Totally agree, not wearing a tie can look great!

It depends on your theme and dress code.  What level of formality are you aiming for?

I personally think it would look better without the jeans and a pair of dress-ish/dress pants. Okay yeah it fits the theme and he could get away with it… but I am just thinking about pictures where it’s just the two of you… You will done up to the nines and he will be… wearing jeans. I understand the no tie thing, but can’t he wear a nice pair of pants? Lol. It’s not like you will be super comfortable in your gown, bahaha.

Just my opinion…

What about a bowtie? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Those are much cooler than ties ๐Ÿ˜‰

Will the groomsmen ditch the ties too?

If other men show up and are annoyed they have a tie on, while the groom doesn’t, they can just take ’em off, stick them in their pockets! No big deal. The groom should be comfortable and proud of what he’s wearing.
