Tie Knots: The Pros and Cons
Brides put a lot of work in how they look and rightly so, I mean after all it is their big day. However, when planning a wedding, it is also essential to consider which knot the groom will utilize. I say this because so often males incorrectly use the wrong knot or even still fail to tie their ties correctly. Do you really trust your future husband to get this right on your most important day? Believe it or not, this minor detail will draw the majority of guests attention.
So here are three knots to consider and one to avoid on the big day. Ladies take note:
Bow Tie: Suitable for ceremonial occasions, bow ties generate a formal appearance for significant occasions. Despite being viewed as traditional, they are ideal for weddings. Remember, bowties can highlight facts about the groom such as their profession. For example bow ties are intrinsically linked to architects and university professors to name a few. Its a nice touch.
The Pratt Knot: Standard and regularly sized, this commensurate necktie knot is not too broad or slim. Appropriate for establishing a neat look it is acceptable for either casual ceremonies or constructing that simple, clean look.
The Windsor Knot: For a more bold, noble appearance the Windsor Knot generates a sophisticated, sizable neckline. Its excellent for wide collared shirts.
The Four in Hand Knot: Undeniably the simplest and easiest knot to create. The asymmetric appearance looks poor in combination with a white collared shirt. Regardless of its potential use with narrow opening collared shirts, it should be excluded on your wedding day.
