For those of you that know me, know that I love bowties. It is a must have for my wedding outfits, whether it is a black one with white stripes or my personal favorite, blue with white polka-dots. So when I found out today was National Bowtie Day, I had to celebrate!
Over the years I have found that they are much easier and more convenient than a regular tie (once you know how to tie them). You never have to worry about length while tying, or if it will slop down in your food during dinner. Plus at the end of the night you get to untie it and look like James Bond. It is rare that I go to a wedding and not receive a compliment on my bowtie.
Unfortunately many guys out there don't know how to tie them. Countless times, I've had to help the bridal party or even guests with their's on the wedding day. Finally I have created a tutorial on how to properly tie a bowtie.
Hope this helps!
DISCLAIMER: I would suggest practicing this a few times before the wedding day to make sure you know how to do it really well.
