Bow Ties for Grooms & Groomsmen

I have always been a sucker for a man in a bow tie. There is just something so dignified about a bow tie. Perhaps it explains my undying love for Chuck Bass. Either way bow ties are making a comeback for weddings, but in unique ways. It used to be that grooms and groomsmen wore classic black bow ties to go with their classic tux. Then suits with ties became the norm. Now bow ties are back in swing but in varying colors, patterns, and styles. They are for the "classic groom" and the off-beat groom. My favorite trend for groomsmen right now is the button up, bow tie, and suspenders. It's comfortable looking yet quite sharp.

I wanted to share with ya'll my current favorite bow tie looks for grooms and groomsmen. Which is your favorite?

*BONUS*
I saw this idea online and I just had to share it! This wedding gave away bow ties to the male guests as a wedding favor; making it adorably named the "Bow Tie Bar". It is an adorable idea for a rustic or 'hipster' wedding.
