I am tossing up between the idea of my FH and his groomsmen to wear a tie or a bowtie.
What did you have/are having?
I think I’m leaning towards a tie because I love what he looks like in a tie 🙂
I don’t know if it’s important, but we’re having an afternoon, traditional church wedding

@This Time Round:
A formal wedding, not sure yet if it will be a tuxedo or a three piece suit but it will be black if that helps
EDIT: Actually…I really want a three piece suit 😀

Ruches look much better than a standard tie 😉

I voted tie but personally I love SO in a tie

“Ruches” isn’t a word I was familiar with… had to look it up.
Seems to be a British English term for something that is a cross between an Ascot and a traditional Tie.

Apologies, forgot most of yous lot on here are US or just not UK!!!! I think they just look so much smarter than a standard tie and my OH isn’t keen on bowties and in all honesty nor am I so ruches it is for our wedding!!

a 3 Piece Dark Suit works all day round… midnight to midnight.
James Bond Tuxedos technically are best for an Evening Wedding, or an affair that is primarily held late in the afternoon (sunset) and centres around upscale things like a Cocktail Hour and Sit-Down Dinner
Morning Dress is the formal equivalent to the Tuxedo for events that happen earlier than the evening timeframe
Altho to be honest, at least in North America very few people hold to the prescribed tuxedo timeframe… you’ll see tuxedos here morning, noon, and night-time too.
PS… Your PROFILE says you are in Sydney… curious which Sydney… the one down under, the one in Canada, or somewhere else? Ruched ties were something new for me as a Canadian… not sure if they are in use the world over. So that too would be something to think about… what is popular in your part of the world (easily found… as no doubt with the Men in your Wedding… Groom, Best Man, Groomsmen, etc you’d probably need something that can be easily found / sourced for a “larger group”… especially so if everyone isn’t in the same city etc)

- Wedding: July 2014 - saint patricks parish
both have all the important guys wear a bow tie and tie for all the others its kind of like how we let our maids of honor sometimes wear a different color or shade from the rest of the bridesmaids

Bowties creep me out… I feel they should spin. Or spit water. Just a weird ‘me’ thing. So im opting ties!!
Post # 12
I LOVE bowties, so I voted for that. Fiance says no on them, though, and votes for regular ties. Bah!
As an aside, our guys are just wearing tux pants and a matching vest, so…formality of the event doesn’t really matter.

@This Time Round:
I am an Aussie my FH is originally a kiwi but lives here.
I actually completely forgot about ruches! They are so lovely 🙂
I think I might have to see if I can source them here in a colour that will match the bridesmaids dresses (what ever colour they may end up being!
I think my FH will definitely be wearing a ties for our going away outfits, so it might be nice to have something different.
I am going with @pokemon on this one…I expect bow ties to spin or top hats to be involved…or dancing penguins (but my mum likes them so thats another hurdle) I will say though that I absolutely adore a man with an untied black bow tie…pity i can’t have that for my wedding lol

Oh and also, we are doing a 3 pm wedding and 5-10/11pm reception
so late afternoon to late evening really
I love three piece suits. I must incorporate at least one into my wedding
I have decided that I don’t like tuxes…just because I’m not big on the tails.

Re – Tuxes
In North America most tuxes don’t have tails … only Morning Coats do.
Tuxes with Tails is considered odd / old fashioned (like a penguin)… tuxes now are very much like a suit, only dressier.
PHOTO – Typical Black Tuxedo as worn in NA. This one shown with a Vest & Regular Tie… Bowties, Ascots, or even open collar are options… are are the more traditonal cummerbund (typically worn with a bow tie)… ala James Bond
And on that note…
A Bit of Eye-Candy for your viewing pleasure… I agree nothing as sexy as 007 himself (any James Bond works for me)
