A Groom’s Guide To Getting Ready

Mastering The Wedding Tie

Oak & Iron Photography

We are constantly overhearing “how do I tie this…” or a slightly different variation of “how do I fold that…” from up in the Billiards room in the Decklan House. We wanted to give the boys a hand – ha, get it! – and have an easy groom’s guide to getting ready. More importantly, a how-to section on mastering the wedding tie.

After some searching and a little bit of practice we found the guides at The Tie Bar to be the most helpful. So if you are going for the Windsor, Four in Hand, Bow Tie or the ever popular Ascot we have you covered!

If you are renting your suits for your wedding rest assured that most places have the ties (bow tie included) pre-tied in more of a clip-on version. This allows you to adjust the size around your neck – the confusion here skips the tying process and jumps right to the pocket square folding. We found nine different ways to fold these bad boys so there is no shortage of options. Don’t worry we will just touch on the key ones to know!

I am much more of a hands on learner so watching someone actually do this made so much more sense!
