I'm getting married this fall and plan to wear my midnight blue tux, which has a black satin shawl collar. Although I have red and black bowties, I would like to wear a cummerbund for the wedding and so I'm leaning toward a matching cummerbund/bowtie. I would appreciate any suggestions as to colors, materials, styles, and vendors. I am based in Southern California, so I can either do regional brick-and-mortar or buy online. (If it helps, in the wedding party there will be two dark green dresses, two burgundy dresses, and two navy suits. The venue is a charming oceanside hotel with an Old Hollywood feel.) Thanks in advance.

black would be my choice - especially given the black shawl.

Here's a place that has some wonderful bow ties but they have matching tie/cummerbunds. They have some nice patterns as well (I like the Pembroke black):

Your bow tie should be made in the same material as your jacket's facings. If your jacket has black satin collars, get a black satin bow tie. Some jackets have grosgrain facings, so you would need a grosgrain bow tie. Etc.
