What a great year for trying new patterns, prints, fabrics and colours. Old is new and new is old!

We are really excited to see some of these beautiful ideas come to light. We look forward to implementing some of them at Tracey M Events.
Which ones do you like best?

We love these patterned and pastel like coloured cotton ties from Tux & Tulle

How to Tie a Bow Tie

How to Tie a Bow Tie

How to Tie a Bow Tie

Not just for black tie events…It seems the bow tie is making a comeback.
I did a wedding styleshoot last weekend and guess what? The model, our dashing wanna-be groom, was sporting a bow tie. Not your average bow tie, though, but a turquoise crocheted one! I can’t wait to share the photos with you soon.

Now I have never been good at tying a tie, much less a bow tie, so I was ever so grateful to find a ton of useful articles on the subject.
Sure, you can always buy or rent the ones that are velcroved on and button together, but wouldn’t you feel much more dapper and distinquished by having the pleasure of know-how?

Thanks to Spendid Northwest for letting us share this step-by-step guide with you:
