National Bow Tie Day occurs once a year, every year on August 28th. Although it is uncertain who founded National Bow Tie Day, this day is set aside to pay tribute to the timeless style of the bow tie.

Wondering what occasions are appropriate to wear a bow tie? A bow tie is rarely the wrong tie to wear. The general rule is if the event setting or occasion is necktie appropriate, then it is more than likely bow tie appropriate.  The bow tie can be worn for formal, semiformal and even casual settings. Bow ties are becoming more and more popular for grooms and their guys. And we love it!

Although weddings are not the only occasion to wear a bow tie, it is on of our favs. So we thought we would pay our own tribute to National Bow Tie Day by sharing some of our favorite photos of Grooms in bow ties.

Love how this gorgeous blue and green ostrich feather tie complements this gorgeous navy tux!
