Tie or Cravat!

Wedding Questions.

If your thinking or wearing a tie or a cravat as apart of your wedding attire then there is no right or wrong. It is purely down to what you feel more smart and or comfortable with.Most prefer a cravat on the wedding day as the tie can look a little more common.

What is important is that whatever you choose matches with your colour scheme or with the bridesmaids dresses. The groom will normally wear a different colour from the rest of the grooms party. If you choose a tie or a cravat, It is also important that the whole grooms party ware the same.
