Our David's Bridal (DB) colors are Sangria, Horizon & Oasis and I am having a HELL of a time finding bow ties that match.  Mens Wearhouse (MW) apparently only RENTS out bow ties that match those colors, and not in solid colors (the sangria one is a paisley-like pattern and the other two are dots).

 

Has anyone had any luck or experience with finding ties that match the colors they picked from DB?  

 

I would just rent them all, but this would involve picking them up right before we leave and returning them right after the wedding (we won't be back for about a week & a half).  This wouldn't be an issue, but we're 2.5 hours away from a MW!  Plus, my fiancee would really like to just buy them since bow ties are fairly inexpensive.

 

The hardest one is going to be sangria - even at Mens Wearhouse, nothing matched (sigh).

 

Here's what I've found so far - I'm not in love, but I think some of these *might* work?

 

 

 

HELP!!! :)

I was going to suggest Bows-n-Ties.com, but I've see you've found them already. I think your matches are pretty good! 

 

We bought our ties from them, and were happy with quality, speed of shipping and service. Good luck!

Those look like a pretty good match. I really like the sangria colour. Your profile picture matches all 3 dresses lol I'm guessing it's not a coincidence. 


I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend

My fiancĂ© and I were just in Moores last night and I noticed that they have a large selection of bow ties. They were even offering to order some for us if we wanted. Do you have a Moores close that you could check?

I think you did a great job with the matching. they look pretty darned close to me, and with the photos, I doubt you'll really be able to see that they aren't "exact"!

 

@MissJen3  Just a little tidbit of information - Moores is a canadian store. I'm not sure they even ship to the US come to think of it. Mens Warehouse in the US is a great store!

 

@marinah84 Not sure if you have a Jos. A Bank near you, but that might be someplace else to try for bow ties. But I think what you have looks great!


I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

I think you've done a great job... and personally since the bow tie is fairly small even if it is slightly off you won't notice....

 

We got all our dresses at DB as well, I LOVED the one you have above, but the girls chose a different one.

We are doing the bright pink - begonia as they call it - color.

 

Hindsite I wish I would have done a mix of colors but ah well.

 

great colors and choices!

You did great so far. The matches are on point. I am not sure where you are located but some K&Gs have big selections.
Good Luck :)

Maybe try Express, HM, JCPENNEY. I was thinking of having my ties made


So far 79 adult guests + bride and groom + 13 kids = 164 room nights. Focused on planning without stressing.
