When it comes to wedding attire for men, certain pieces are downright essential. A stylish suit is the most popular choice for formal ceremonies, while a tuxedo is the way to go for black-tie nuptials. For seaside ceremonies and laidback "I do's," men's attire can easily teeter into the casual territory by way of Hawaiin shirts, slacks, and button-down shirts sans jackets. But for dressier wedding looks involving suits or tuxes, add-ons like shoes, suspenders, pocket squares, socks, and, of course, ties are the necessary extras to, um, tie everything together. On the topic of ties, there so many out there! So, we're here to help you hone in on the best ones for a wedding, whether you're aiming for a classic, bold, or retro-inspired look.
Like with socks, shoes, and suspenders, ties are an accessory that can wonderfully showcase your sense of style or coordinate your look to the venue or theme of a wedding. From fun prints to stylish solids and textured fabrics, there's no hard-and-fast rule for a wedding tie. The classics are forever elegant, whether you're into a skinny, wide, or long-length tie. A quirky motif is a great way to showcase your sense of humor, while colors from jewel tones to pastels are ideal for coordinating with the wedding party. If you're a groomsman, you'll want to take a cue from the groom before selecting a tie. Otherwise, don't be afraid to try a bolder tie look as a wedding guest or groom—it's a special occasion, after all.
