tuxedo ties [Page 1 of 1]

The groom's tuxedo necessitates a tie, be it a bowtie, long tie, or an ascot. If you can't tie a bowtie or don't know what an ascot is, this article is for you.

A bowtie

The classic tuxedo is worn with a bowtie. A black bow tie, to be precise. Chances are, you have no idea how to tie a bow tie, and that's perfectly normal - it's not the kind of thing our fathers taught us. With a tuxedo rental, your package will come with a choice of ties, and most of them are pre-tied. In fact, they're not just pre-tied, they're permanently tied and sown to create a perfect knot. Almost too perfect. While GroomGroove.com has no problem with a pre-fab tie, please keep the elastic clip from showing. If you decide to wear a bow tie that you have to tie yourself, learn how. Also, be ready to help your groomsmen learn. Most bowties have a strap that wraps around your neck and fastens in front. They look fine, are adjustable and can be secured easily.

The long tie

A long tie is generally no different than a regular necktie, except that it will be fashioned from satin, rather than a silk weave. If you own a shiny black necktie, however, you may be able to get away with using your own tie. Do not use a black necktie if it isn' shiny. That's a dead giveaway that you are incompetent in the tux tie department.

Tie color

Your tie color will likely be dictated by the your bride, possibly based on what her bridesmaids will be wearing. If they're wearing silver dresses, she may want you and your groomsmen to wear matching ties.


Ascots are back in fashion and are a great change from the bowties worn at high school proms. According to veteran New Jersey wedding photographer Ron Melendi, "Ascots always look best through the lens. Ascots look best with vests and positively amazing with long jackets. An ascot is unique but not unusual, adding a bit of panache to you and the men who will join you when you say 'I do'."

I had been curious about if you ever thhougt of adjusting the design of your site? It is well written; I love what youve got to state. But maybe you could add a a bit more in the way of written content so people could connect to it better. Youve got an awful lot of wording for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
