Many grooms are forgoing the formality of the traditional black tie in favour of something a little more fun. Bow ties are back in, and while they give the groom a playful look, they can also add a touch of sophistication to any suit.

Country weddings are well suited to colourful or patterned bow ties and they look particularly chic if worn with a suit that's any other colour than black. 

Choosing the Colour

There are many different options when it comes to choosing the colour and pattern for a bow tie. Black is always chic, but some men may prefer to splash out a little with stripes, polka dots, plaid or zigzags. Matching the bow tie to the flowers or the wedding colour adds a cohesive element to the overall aesthetic.

Add Some Suspenders

Suspenders are no longer the clothing choice of nerds. Fun and funky, they add a good-natured vibe to your special day. There are so many options for width and colour, so you can match your suspenders to the bow tie and flower arrangements or go with classic black.

Mix and Match Bow Ties

If all your bridesmaids are in mix and match dresses, then consider dressing all the groomsmen in mix and match bow ties.  Each groomsmen could wear a different coordinating colour and pattern, that matches their own style and personality.
