VIDEO: Step-by-Step How to Tie The Perfect Bow Tie

Although I have yet to be asked to assist in tying a bow tie, I can say with the utmost confidence that if put in that situation, it would take quite a bit of trial and error for me to produce a decent-looking bow (they’re not the easiest of things to just figure out, am I right?).

Chances are, both you and your groom—whether or not he’s worn one in the past—are in the same boat, which is why we can all benefit from any handy little instructional that breaks the steps down. Here’s the latest we’ve come across that shows us (albeit quickly) all the steps to tying the perfect bow tie.

All you have to do is watch this a few (hundred) times and you’ll be good to go in time for your Big Day. (And if you need to slow it down, there’s always this.)
