Ties That Don't Suck: Our New Favorite Etsy Seller Makes Silkscreen Ties For The 'Cool' Groom

June 6, 2011 by Adrienne Rayski
shefinds | Weddings

Etsy seller Bethany Shorb launched Ties That Don’t Suck in 2005 after noticing what she calls, “a void in creative yet sophisticated neckwear,” – aka, a world of boring ties. If your groom cringes at the thought of a traditional tuxedo and is looking for something a little edgier, he’ll go crazy for their cool silkscreen designs — which include everything from brass knuckles to laser cats (yes, really). We’re loving this Antique phonograph tie ($30).

Bethany even says they regularly (and dutifully) outfit “gangs of groomsmen and ring-bearers,” so if you’re thinking of making ties the stand-out accessory on the men in your bridal party, here’s the perfect venue to find ’em. I loved the Lorem Ipsum design ($30) as a gift for my web-developing husband; the bow-tie version ($40) would be perfect for a geeky-chic groom.

Now that you’ve accessorized your guy, find the perfect accents for yourself: see our guides on the best wedding headbands, wedding veils, and diamond wedding jewelry.
