Black Tie

Should you wear a bow tie?

If the invitation says black tie, then wear a bow. Save the necktie for the invitations that read - festive or formal attire.

 

Must it be black?

Yes. The choices of fabric textures and shapes give you the variety of options: shiny, matte, cotton, silk, pointed, butterfly shape...

 

Can you wear a pre-tied bow?

We would kindly ask -- please don't. The whole fun of wearing a bow-tie is in how you tie it. And then untying it at the end of the night/day. Everyone knots theirs differently, which is ultimately how you express yourself and radiate confidence.
