Guys in Bow Ties!

The bow tie has been around for centuries. Is there anything more classic? And nowadays, with the explosion of colors and patterns–the wedding bow tie can be such a flexible part of the groom’s attire. They can retain their classic mystique in formalwear or can be made to be quirky, creative, and casual. We love them! From paisley to plaid to gingham to patriotic, here are a few of our favorite picks from some of our favorite blogs …

“Sparkling” Wedding Shoes

Categories Fashion + Wedding Attire

We’ve never had a Tuesday Shoe-day at Truly Engaging before–until today! And what better way to kick it off, than with a bit o’ glam and lots of shimmer. I knew that our Community Specialist–Amanda–loves loves shoes, so when I asked her for inspiration, I knew she’d deliver. Here are 5 of Amanda’s favorite sparkling wedding shoes. Are they not fabulous?

Personally, I’m torn between the blue slingbacks and the beaded ruby red beauties. I’m going with the ruby reds.

How about you? Which pair is your favorite?
