Mix and Match

No one said that everything in a wedding had to match. Pick a pattern or color scheme that is complementary and add it to the summer ties for your wedding. The mix and match aspect can add a point of difference that is found in simple elements of summer ties.

Add Flare

Like we said, everything doesn't have to match! Pick the same bow tie for the groomsmen and pick a unique, patterned bow tie for the groom. The groom gets to stand out on his big day, but the color scheme still matches the rest of the wedding party. Win-win!

Color Pop

Make summer ties 'pop' by picking a bright color. Oranges, blues, greens, and peaches are great options when trying to draw attention to the groom's tie.

Change it Up

Perhaps you like the black and white look, but want to make it different. Pick a pattern you love and make it work for you.

Palette Pairing

Pick the same colors and use them for the groom and groomsmen to create a uniform look, but then highlight a contrasting detail. Think about asking the groomsmen wear bow ties and having the groom wear a full tie to create a point of difference.

Cover the Spectrum

Pick one color you love and use every shade possible. Use a slightly different shade for each summer tie and each groomsman will have his own hue, plus the look as a whole will have a unique ombre effect.
