Unless your beau was raised in the South, he might not know how to tie a bow tie. And, to be honest, not even all born and bred Southern men know how. Crazy, right?! But, it’s true. When we created the Southern Weddings for High Cotton bow tie collection, we knew we had to create a fun and simple tutorial for you, your soon-to-be husband, and his gents to go along with it, and who better to help us with this than our friend James from High Cotton? Enjoy!

    Talented, professional, compassionate vendors are the backbone of every smoothly running wedding day. When you hire people who are great at what they do AND good people to boot, your only job on your wedding day will be to act as a gracious hostess, love your family and friends well, and say “I do.” What a blessing! That’s why we’re passionate about our Blue Ribbon Vendors–because we want y’all to be worrying about those three things, and nothing else. Here are a few we’d love to introduce you to!

    Favorite thing about weddings in the South? The couples are so sweet! It’s always a pleasure to help combine their two personalities to create a celebration that joins their families and represents them as a couple.

    Favorite thing about weddings in the South? Food, music, more food…need we say more? Only at a Southern wedding will you indulge in shrimp and grits, gumbo, AND beignets, and then take your happy tummy out to the streets to dance the night away with the most fabulous jazz band and a drink in hand. Southern weddings have a charm and vibrancy second to none!

    Where you call home: Diamondhead, MS
    Favorite part of a wedding day? I have a bunch! But one of my top favorites is seeing the bride’s face when she sees her wedding ceremony and reception for the first time. I absolutely love the moment that she sees her dream wedding come to life.

    Best piece of advice you can give to brides and grooms? Enjoy your day! Trust the details to the people you’ve hired so you can celebrate. Above all, remember that your marriage is so much more important than you wedding!

    Name: Heather Kline Photography
    Category: Photography
    Where you call home: Any small town with a main street, oak trees, front porches with swings, and cold sweet tea!
    How I got into weddings: My family and I went on vacation one year, and on the Blue Ridge train ride met this incredible guy with an impressive gear bag of photographic equipment. I was already looking for a creative outlet in my life, and that was the official impetus to begin the journey that began a reawakening of a talent discovered way back in my high school darkroom! A few more classes, some mentoring, and a lot of shutter clicks later, I knew that photographing weddings was it for me. The energy of the day, the emotions and giggles, all kept me on an adrenaline rush that I absolutely love! I love the couples and families I work with, the vendors I meet, and I wouldn’t want to do anything else in the world than what I’m doing now!

    Name: Judy Hill of High Cotton

    Where you call home: Raleigh, North Carolina
    Favorite thing about weddings in the South? I love the small details about Southern weddings the most: strings of lights, fragrant Southern flowers, grandma’s recipes on the pie bar, a beau tie bar with colorful bow ties, and the delightfully warm and carefree atmosphere that Southern weddings exude.

    Name: Jessica Lynn Hatton Photography

    Where you call home: Lexington, KY
    Favorite part of a wedding day? My favorite part of the wedding day is listening to the vows and watching the newlyweds walk down the aisle after they are married and seeing their heavenly smiles.

    Name: Justin DeMutiis Photography
    Category: Photography
    Where you call home: Tampa, Florida
    How I got into weddings: I started in high school with a passion for nature and landscape photography and a desire to preserve the most beautiful scenes and moments in a faithful way. My health teacher was also a wedding photographer, and when she saw my passion for photography she took me under her wing and taught me about portraits and weddings!

    Name: Sarah Ntouskas of Make It Posh
    Category: Event Planning and Design
    Where you call home: Mechanicsville, VA
    Favorite part of a wedding day? The father-daughter dance. It gets me every time. I am not a crier by nature and can stay dry through the most touching of vows, but it’s all waterworks during the dances. I can’t help but think one day that will be my husband with our girls.

    Name: Anna Stouffer of Urban Petals
    Category: Floral Design
    Where you call home: Greenville, South Carolina
    Favorite part of a wedding day? Giving a bride her bouquet, hands down! I absolutely love seeing her expression and often tears of joy!!

    It’s no secret that bow ties are one of our very favorite things, and hands down our favorite Southern groom accessory. More than one SW significant other has converted to bow tie-wearing for formal occasions at our influence, and we hope some of our lovely brides have had the same success! ;) Whether your groom can rock a bow tie any day of the week, or he’s kindly giving into your request on your wedding day, we are tickled pink to introduce a brand new program by our friends at High Cotton that we think you’re both going to love!

    Just in time for wedding season, High Cotton has launched their Home Try-On program, a free service in which you can choose five bow ties that will be shipped to your door, yours to try on and test out for five days. This makes it easier than ever to coordinate bow ties with bridesmaid dresses and wedding color swatches–High Cotton has even used popular bridesmaid dress lines, like J. Crew and David’s Bridal, as inspiration, creating bow ties that will coordinate beautifully with their signature colors.

    Post your options on social media with the hashtag #highcottonathome for feedback from stylish friends and the High Cotton team (and maybe even the Southern Weddings gals!). Once you’ve chosen your favorite, pack the bow ties back up in the High Cotton box, stick on the prepaid label, and buy your bow tie of choice online. Easy as pie!

    To celebrate this exciting launch, High Cotton has generously offered a free bow tie to the first 50 SW grooms who choose to outfit their groomsmen in High Cotton after using the Home Try-On program! Use the code SWMAG at checkout on an order of at least four items to get the groom’s bow tie for free!
