Seersucker bow ties

I wrote in an earlier post that we had looked at seersucker suits, but found nowhere to rent them from.  We both really like seersucker, though, because it’s summer-y, it’s light and breathable, it’s just a good look.  In fact, John has a seersucker suit and he looks great in it!

While we went with dark gray suits, we still wanted to incorporate something to say “outdoor summer wedding”.  Enter Southern Elle Style bow ties.

I met Lauren, the creator, through the Dallas Blogger Collective.  Upon looking through her blog, Southern Elle Style, I saw she had a link to custom bow ties she created.  I inquired more and learned one of her fabrics she works with is seersucker, and she makes each tie custom to the neck length of each groomsmen.  We chose green seersucker to match the sage green dresses of the bridesmaids.

John tried his on this weekend (with a suit he had at home) and we both agreed it was a good fit. 🙂  Can’t wait to see all the groomsmen in them next month!
