For the bride and her bridesmaids, choosing the perfect dresses is all part of the fun, a time-honoured tradition that usually feels like an important part of the planning process. However, the best man and groomsmen aren’t always shown such attention. Of course, wedding suits will be a given, and you might even think about custom waistcoats, but many soon-to-be-newlyweds forget to consider the tie.
Here are just three reasons why your best man and groomsmen should all wear a special custom tie.
- Prevent Unfortunate Clashes
The most obvious reason to use custom ties when dressing your groomsmen is that you’ll prevent any jarring clashes on the day itself. Of course, it’s unlikely that one groomsman is going to wear a polka dot red and white tie while another wears a deep black, but you’d be surprised how obvious even the slightest difference in shade, shape, and material can be, especially when the rest of the outfit matches completely. Remember, any problems will show up in wedding photos very clearly, and those photos are for life.
- Create an Important Keepsake
It’s not like your best man and your groomsmen are going to be forgetting about your wedding, but it’s still nice to provide a keepsake. A custom tie can fill that role perfectly – this was an item specially designed for your special day, and it will be tied to that occasion forever. Only the best man and groomsman will ever have worn that particular type of tie.
- Keep Things Organised
It’s worth keeping in mind that not everyone present at your wedding is going to know who the best man and the groomsmen are. Of course, the majority of your guests will, but staff at your reception or even people at the church might not be aware of who is who. By providing custom ties, you’ll let everyone know instantly that this person is part of the main wedding party, which can be surprisingly useful.
