10 Summer Ties for the Fashion-Forward Groom
Wedding planning isn’t always about picking out dresses and flowers! We’ve found 10 summer ties (bow ties included) that would be perfect for your wedding.
Lighten it Up
Summer is about light and bright colors and summer ties can change a traditional suit in an instant. Pick a light color and incorporate it in the wedding ties.
A Floral Touch
Who said that floral patterns were only for females? Floral patterns can add a unique touch to a tie.
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.
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!
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.
Keep it Elegant
…Or you could go with the tried and true. Keep it elegant and classic. Stick with the black bow tie and classic suit.
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.
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.
Summer is all about warm colors. Change a suit by adding warm colors to the groomsmen’s attire — the peach shown here is the perfect color for a summer wedding.
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.
