Just as soon as we thought we’d seen it all, y’all knock us off our feet. This monogrammed veil blew us away!

October’s Southern Bride of the Month, Melissa shared all the details of her Charleston wedding and cracked us up with her adorable proposal story.

We’re giving away bow ties from our prop closet! V5 isn’t on stands quite yet, but these colorful ties might give you a preview of some of the dapper patterns our gents have worn. Enter here.

Marissa + Kristin spent a long weekend in New York getting a preview of designers’ amazing new bridal collections! Check out this post for a little preview of the pretty that’s coming to the blog!

We just love our Real Weddings!

Sarah + Keith planned a pretty pink wedding inside a rustic Texas cotton mill. We love how the textures complement each other! See it here.

    I love the yellow gingham bow tie! Perfect for my brother to have for his May wedding!

  5. avatar Kristy reply

    I love the first red one with what looks like polka dots!

  6. avatar Kate reply

    What Southern gentleman wouldn’t look as handsome as ever in the classic navy and white seersucker bow-tie? My groom-to-be would be pleased as punch! FAN-TAS-TIC!

  7. avatar Sandryte reply

    I’d love to win a grey-green-blue neck tie (from the middle). I adore my husband when he’s wearing a suit with a neck tie:)

  8. avatar Sara reply

    I LOVE the navy and white seersucker bow tie…Navy is the classiest the neutral. :)

    The blue polka dot one on the bottom.

  11. avatar Christina Setser reply

    I love the green cotton one so much. I will be using cotton in my floral arrangements and using the color of green that is in the bow tie. I am getting married in Charleston,South Carolina on March 15,2013. I will be having my wedding at Legare Waring House. I love all the southern charm of Charleston plus I graduated from College of Charleston. Thank you so much. Christina Setser

  12. avatar Katie B reply

    My favorite is definitely the green and white gingham, but I know my Chris would like the teal neck tie the best. He’s been so sweet to me through the whole planning process, he deserves to get a few things he likes! Plus, he would look awfully handsome in it!

  13. avatar Taylor J reply

    Considering my beau is a major Alabama fan, I just know that he’d LOVE to have the houndstooth bowtie on the top left!!

  14. avatar Melissa V reply

    All of these are fabulous! I ythink my man would look amazing in the blue Blair neck tie

  19. avatar Luke reply

    I like the green neck tie

  20. avatar Christen reply

    I really love them all since I don’t think one can have to many bow ties but knowing my honey is not as keen on all styles I would have to say he would probably love the navy and white striped one or the yellow gingham one. I hope the V5 list out where we can get all these lovey ties talk about gift ideas!

  21. avatar Danielle reply

    Love the mint julep bow tie! Perfect for our wedding on May 4, the day of the 2013 Kentucky Derby! Any of them are great though!

  35. avatar Brynn reply

    I would have such a hard time choosing, but I think I would go for the orange plaid.

  36. avatar Laura Caroline reply

    I love the orange gingham bow tie! I think it just might be the one to convince my beau to give bow ties a chance, since it’s his alma mater’s (Campbell) colors!

    I am loving all of the bright yellow ones. They are perfect.

  2. avatar Ali Cline reply

    They are ALL calling to me in a way! So bright and fun! Guess I’d have to pick the tealish blue striped one if I had to though!

  3. avatar Kristyn M reply

    Seersucker in any color!

  4. avatar Megan reply

    I love the Mint Julep bowtie! I am getting married the weekend after the Kentucky Derby and mint juleps are the drink of choice!

  5. avatar Elizabeth @ HobbyLobbyist reply

    I am a sucker for a southern guy in a bow tie! My guy would be happy with any of these options, but I am drawn to the second one from the bottom in the left column– the purplish/blue plaid. Thanks for sharing these with your readers!

  6. avatar emily reply

    I like the 14th one in the left column.

  7. avatar Anna reply

    I love the red and navy with polka dots!!

  8. avatar Lauren reply

    Y’all I LOVE the green seersucker Bowtie! It would be perfect for my to be groom in our pink and green southern wedding (eek less than 10 months). Carolina here we come!

  9. avatar Jenna reply

    I think he would love them all. :)

    But since he is quite the bow tie man I would say second from the bottom right or any of the yellows.

  10. avatar amanda reply

    Being from the south you definitely have to represent your Alma Mater and my fiance would look totally dapper in the red gingham or polka dot bow tie to represent NC State!!! (How bout that win Saturday?!) I love those two the most!! SO cute! I also think the red and white floral is so sweet!!

  11. avatar Ashleigh reply

    LOVING the gingham bow tie or the blue/green checked one (5th from the top)! We just got engaged (eeek! I’m getting MARRIED!) and are trying to decide on our colors and ties vs. bow ties so this would certainly help with the decision making as well as making my groom-to-be look handsome while we decide!

  12. avatar Shelby reply

    So many daper bow ties! Although, I must say my eyes are drawn to that blue gingham beauty. What a more southern way to bring out my beau’s blue eyes than with gingham!?

    congrats on V5 ladies! can’t wait to add the fifth to my collection!

  13. avatar Damaris Mia reply

    Oooo! I love both of the skinny ties! (the light blue and peach one). Can’t wait for the magazine!

  14. avatar Graham reply

    I’d take them all :)…but I do need some more green in my life…4th one from the top left = AMAZING! :)

  15. avatar Larissa reply

    The Mint Julep bowtie is just adorable!

  16. avatar Courtney Cross reply

    They are just adorable! I would say anything red would be perfect for my husband! I see a few Southern Proper ones in the photos, these are my husbands favorite!

  17. avatar Carrie M reply

    They are all so beautiful, but I do love those bright red ones!

  18. avatar Allison reply

    My man has been wanting a diamond tipped bow tie for a while now! The green stripped one would look wonderful on him! The bottom right bow tie also has his name written all over it.

  19. avatar Meredith @ Map & Menu reply

    What fun! I love the any of the blue or navy ties with stripes!

  20. avatar Kelsey reply

    I would love to win the light blue seersucker bow tie! It’s is one of his favorite colors, brings out his eyes, and works perfectly for Tarheel football games!!

  21. avatar Julie reply

    Carolina Blue- can’t get better than that!

  22. avatar Kelsey Lou reply

    These ties are DIVINE! I married my sweet hubs Evan in June and we are set to attend a bunch more weddings for our sweet friends this Fall! I am dying over the red/orange & blue medallion beau second from the bottom right! He would look oh so dapper in it!

  23. avatar Sydney H reply

    I love the tiny plaid green and white bow tie, for my boyfriend!

  24. avatar Kelly reply

    My Southern gent loves all things houndstooth (to my UTK-loving chagrin, roll tide…) — so that first one on the top left corner would make him swoon!!

  25. avatar Rachel reply

    I’m an artist, and any of the peachy pinks or yellows are lovely…they’re such fresh, bright hues. Any of the peaches would be really pretty paired with cobalt blue bridesmaid dresses.

  26. avatar Kelly reply

    I absolutely love the pink and green striped one! My Fiance would love this!

  27. avatar Taylor reply

    THIS IS SO HARD! I love all the plaids…ginghams….seersucker…ahh the bright yellows the mellow blues! But I do have to say…. the fiance would probably love the houndstooth bow-tie the best!!

  28. avatar Anna reply

    LOVE, love, love those teal blue striped ties, and the yellow gingham of course! Early Christmas gift for the boy? I think so!! –can’t wait for V5 :)

  29. avatar Melissa Vause reply

    I love love love the green seersucker!

  30. avatar Caitlin reply

    I love the pink and white bow tie! So cute!

  31. avatar Carolyn reply

    I love the light blue tie! My honey has blue eyes and I think it’d be perfect for him!!

  32. avatar Katie reply

    The red plaid pattern would be perfect for my hub’s black tie Christmas party…and I love the blue/green checked print right across the “aisle” from it….I could definitely plan my Easter dress around that beauty!!!

  33. avatar Lindy reply

    I love them all! I think my husbands favorite would be that teal gingham tie though! So fun! he would be thrilled with such a fun and southern prize!

  34. avatar Elise reply

    They’re all adorable, but the blue bow ties that are sixth, seventh, and eighth from the bottom in the left column are my favorites!

  35. avatar Amanda reply

    I love love love the plaid blue and grey neck tie, but they are all so colorful and fun!

    Loving the classic simplicity of the blue seersucker for my favorite guy. :)

  38. avatar Paige reply

    I think that those yellow/gold ones are amazing! especially for my App State loving Fiancé…and the fact that our colors incorporate our love of our colleges into the design! Just got engaged and am so excited about V5!

  39. avatar Jenna Lea reply

    love the navy diagonal stripe, simple and versatile

  40. avatar Natalie reply

    So hard to pick, they are all so fun! My fiancé would most likely wear the blue seersucker stripe one but is that a purple one with penguins that I see?! LOVE.

  41. avatar sarah der reply

    omg I love them all!!!!! But maybe number 9 from the top, that lovely aqua one!

  42. avatar Christina Setser reply

    The green with the cotton on it. I will be using cotton in my flower arrangements. My wedding is in Charleston, South Carolina on March, 16, 2013. I went to College of Charleston and loved all the southern charm and can not wait to have my southern wedding there. Christina Setser

  43. avatar Emily reply

    Either the lime green with navy stripes or the orange and white seersucker – both would compliment our wedding colors perfectly!

  44. avatar Laura reply

    I would love to get my hubby into the blue madras tie! I’d have a harder time with a bowtie unless it was orange.

  45. avatar Courtney Porter {Dogwood Events} reply

    I love all of the orange and red shades!

  46. avatar Courtney reply

    I love them all! If I had to pick I’d pick the madras bright color one!

  47. avatar jen reply

    bow ties are awesome! i love that dark blue one with the tiny white spots all over!

  48. avatar Kathryn reply

    So many great ties! I really like the red gingham, the pink and green stripe, the green one with cotton bolls, and the blue and green gingham. Great giveaway!

  49. avatar Emily reply

    Oh man, all of them? But I think my man, a soon to be UNC alum, would look quite dapper in the Tarheel blue. :o)

  50. avatar Katie reply

    I am OBSESSED with the bowtie 7th from the top in the first column. My bridesmaids are wearing J Crew “Dusty Shale” dresses for my April wedding and I have been having the toughest time finding the perfect bow tie that matches the girls dresses. This one looks PERFECT and adds in another pop of color which I love!!

    Even if I wasn’t selected as a winner…could someone kindly tell me who makes this bow tie? It is amazing!!!

    Love Love Love!

    • avatar Nicole reply

      Hey Katie! The bow tie 7th from the top on the right column is made by Mr. Mustache Bow Tie Co!

  51. avatar Ann reply

    I love them all! I’m getting married next June and my future hubby will be wearing a seersucker suit. We are looking for a good bow tie to coordinate with his suit :)

  52. avatar Erika reply

    I’m a sucker for anything polka dot, especially a bow tie!!

  53. avatar Kristy reply

    Any of the blue ones :)

  54. avatar Danielle reply

    I love the mint julep bowtie! We are getting married the day of the Kentucky Derby, and it would be so handsome for my groom! Any of the green shades are great though!

  55. avatar Jillian Babbel reply

    i LOVE the cream and green bowtie and would have my groomsmen wear it!

  56. avatar Christina Setser reply

    I am planning on using cotton stems in my floral arrangements and the green bow ties with cotton would be great. My wedding is in Charleston,South Carolina on March 16,2013. I graduated from College of Charleston and love the southern charm of the city. Me and my mom thought the green cotton bow ties would be great. I can not wait for my southern wedding. Thank you so much. Christina Setser

  57. avatar Sue Hawks reply

    I like that snappy lime green tie with the stripe. It would look fabulous on my new son-in-law, (Kyle, a Southern Monogram Wedding Blog from May 5 2012 wedding). He is a lawyer in Elizabethtown, NC and all Southern gentlemen lawyers need to make a fashion statement!

  58. avatar Adam Gilbert reply

    I’m partial to that purple plaid number :-)

  59. avatar ashley valis reply

    The gray with white dots is to die for! I am getting married out side in may, and this will blend in with our blue/gray/green theme perfectly!

  60. avatar Laura reply

    I’m a sucker for the seersucker ones :)

  61. avatar Lauren reply

    I love them all!!!!!!!

  62. avatar Sarah reply

    I am loving the tie with the light blue check design!

  63. avatar Sarah H reply

    I love bowties! If I had to pick just one, it has to be the orange plaid.

  64. avatar Christina Setser reply

    I will be getting married on March 16,2013 in Charleston,South Carolina. I graduated from College of Charleston and love the southern charm of the city. I will be using cotton in my floral arrangements and I love the green cotton bow tie and that is one of the colors I will be using. It would be great for the wedding. I love your web site with so many cool ideas. Thank you very much. Christina Setser

  65. avatar Zachry reply

    My fiance is in love with this blog, and she directed me to this contest! My favorite bowtie is 18 down from the left. I would really like it – thanks for doing this!

  66. avatar Tonda reply

    I am loving all of them, so bright and fun! My favorite is the 5th one down the blue and green one!

  67. avatar JOANNA GOULAH reply

    I absolutley love the light green stripe bow tie (1st column 2nd row). It is very versatile with different colored suits, very simple but elegant

  68. avatar Jenny reply

    So hard to choose….I think the one that best embodies our wedding theme is the bow tie 2nd from the bottom on the right, a combination of southern sophistication for Charleston where my fiance is a chef and English hunt country for Charlottesville where I am in school at UVA.

  69. avatar Kelly reply

    Either the solid yellow or yellow diagonal stripe tie would be a wonderful surprise for my groom for our yellow and gray oceanfront wedding in May! Something about a pop of yellow against a gray suit will add a little spring sunshine to my groomsmen!

  70. avatar Jeanie reply

    They’re all amazing! The green bow tie with the thin blue diagonal stripes would be perfect for our garden themed wedding next year.

  71. avatar Eric Harris reply

    the green and salmon bow tie is swaggarific. love it.
