Posted by

1. They're unique

The most obvious reason is simply how unique they are. Couples everywhere are always looking for something special or new to set apart their wedding day in a personal way. What better way to do that than with high quality, handcrafted accessories for the groom, his groomsmen, and the handsome ring bearer, of course.

2. They can be custom-made.

The second reason is something we all love but have a hard time finding: the ability to customize your accessories to perfectly compliment your wedding style or color palette. At Two Guys Bow Tie Co., we have a wide variety of wood types, designs, and centerpieces to provide a world of possibilities. We also give our customers the option to send in their fabric of choice for us to use in making both the lapel flowers and bow ties. This option is extremely popular as it allows the couple to choose exactly what they want and allow our design team to help decide the perfect wood type to match both the fabric and your desired look.

Several of the wood types include: Sapele, Walnut, Maple, White Oak, Padauk, Wenge, Rosewood, Bocote, Zebrawood, Lacewood, Purple Heart, and more. We also have a large quantity of custom fabric that isn’t on our website but have available for your use. Just send us an email at: , let us know what color scheme you’re looking at, and we can send you photos of what we already have before you go shopping for your own!

3. They have sentimental value

One of our favorite things about the accessories we make, especially the wooden bowties, is how easily it becomes a sentimental piece that can be passed down through the family. For only $10 extra, you can have a custom message engraved on the back of the tie. Some popular engravings include one or more of these: the wedding date, the person’s name or initials, their title in the wedding, a personal note, an inside joke, a nickname, bible verse, or song lyrics. We also can do front etchings for an additional expense, or engrave handwritten notes as well. Some examples we’ve done in the past are: “Marry you, why wooden tie?” and “I love you” written in the handwriting of a loved one. Unlike fabric only accessories that fade and become dirty or faded over time, our wooden bow ties age beautifully.

4. Two birds. One stone.

Wooden bow ties and lapel flowers can be both a groomsman gift and their accessory for the wedding day. Especially with our custom back-engraving option, it is a keepsake for them to enjoy for years to come. To inspire your own creativity, one of the couples we worked with put together a neat ensemble for each of the groomsmen to enjoy using an old cigar box.   


(Fortunately for those of us who enjoy taking less steps if we don’t have to, each of our bow ties and lapel flowers come in a unique magnetic box with our logo on it for premium presentation. We mention this as it isn’t necessary to take them out of their original packaging in order to gift wrap it, but it is completely up to you!)

5. Quality craftsmanship. Made in USA.

Each and every wooden bow tie and lapel flower we sell is made right here in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The Co-Founders, Tim and Adam, oversee every step of production and consider each product we send out to be a great representation of their own personal high quality craftsmanship. Supporting Two Guys Bow Tie Co. is supporting the hard-working men and women in our beautiful country. 

With 20% off 5 or more items as our wedding gift to you, we can't think of any reasons not to wear wooden accessories on your special day. Send us an email at nat@www.woodenbowties.com for your personal promo code or get answers to any questions you may have!
