How to Tie a Perfect Bow Tie on Your Wedding Day



I don't know how many times during set-up on a wedding day I hear, "Does anyone know how to tie a bow tie? The groom and his groomsmen are stuck and no one can figure it out. It's kind of an emergency because the groom can't take photos until he's done getting dressed..." over the walkie-talkie. 

So many grooms choose to wear a fantastic bow tie with character to complete their wedding day ensemble, but I would say nine times out of ten, they don't know how to tie it and neither do any of his groomsmen in the room with them.  It's actually somewhat funny to them until it can't get done. That's when I send in one of my planning assistants to help complete the task and everyone can breathe a sigh of relief. 

Two photographers captured moments like these already this season with two of our handsome grooms. However, once the ties were wrapped, they both looked quite dashing.

In case you don't have my team or another planning team there for your wedding day, below is a step-by-step guide on how to do it. If you haven't done it before, it takes a few solid tries to get both sides of the bow even and neat. Try not get frustrated, you'll get it!

Good luck!

  1. I like this post This was awesome. The big advantage of bow ties is that they look cooler than ties, A more practical advantage of bow ties is that they do not get in the way.
