Groom’s tips: how to tie your tie

From bowties to cravats there are a number of options for grooms on their wedding day. However, each come with their own challenges here we reveal how to tie your tie without tying yourself up in knots!



Ok, many men wear a suit and tie to work but you may want to do something special for your big day. Neck ties generally come in two sizes – standard and skinny. The trendy skinny tie looks best in the simple four-in-hand knot (the one you remember from school) however for a standard tie you should go for a Windsor knot.  Pair with a fitted shirt and slim-fit suit for a clean, modern groom look.

Thanks to Matt Smith bow ties are once again cool. We love the quirky floral print  ones for a vintage wedding, but you can also go for plain black plus  dinner jacket for full on James Bond.

The cravat is the classic groom accessory– traditionally worn with a morning suit this little beauty also looks great with a three-piece (if top hat and tails aren’t your thing).

Now this may seem ridiculously simple but with last minute calls from late gusts and on-the-day nerves it isn’t surprisingly how many grooms get flustered with this one! Learn how to pin your buttonhole (or boutonnière if you’re using the fancy name) now!
