Cool colors like lilac and lavender create a cool and relaxed feel for your guests – it is no wonder that these are perfect for summer weddings!  There is also no reason for you, the groom, to feel like you have to wear something that you do not like.  Try out our Meriden Lilac tie, or perhaps our Wilmington Abstract in lilac – mix and match the two for yourself and groomsmen to out show the bridesmaids.  Plus, these ties are great all year long – making them both perfect for your wedding and practical to gift.  To complete this look, opt for a solid white or grey shirt and a solid charcoal grey or navy blue suit.
