Unless you wear a suit for your day job or you're a compulsive wedding groomsman; then tying ties and fixing boutonnieres just so on the lapel of your suit jacket is probably not a common occurence!
In the morning as bridal parties & families get ready for the big day, these are the two things, as photographers, that we get asked about or find ourselves helping with time and time again. Matt's a seasoned pro at tying a tie and I've helped put a fair few boutonnieres and corsages on since becoming a wedding photographer. So naturally I thought I would blog about these mysterious things! 😜
TIES - there's a few different ways to tie a tie. Let's stick with the most common & well known styles; the half windsor and full windsor. Most guys tend to just go for the half windsor as it's easier to get right in length & tension. But if you're wanting to impress you can school yourself up on the full windsor. Rather than explaining these types of tie knots I thought I'd just link to these instructions that I found on Pinterest from Real Men Real Style, or on the day just look for Matt 😉.
Hopefully this blog post is helpful in some way & demistifies these two relatively wedding unique tasks! Let me know if there's anything else you might find useful for me to blog about or something I can help with as you begin planning the finer details of your big day! x
