    No. Frankly neither option is ideal but the bow tie is worse (you're not wearing a tuxedo, don't pretend). I'd wonder if some of the people wearing bow ties are wearing actual tuxedos. Also, is there a reason you have to wear the black suit / black tie combination? There are many better looking combinations out there.

    No, it will look like you didn't have a tux and tried to cover it up.
