    I need some help to get a wedding tie, so would appreciate some links or at least photos to what I can buy.
    I'm getting married and bought a black Z Zegna suit, found a good deal locally, and just got it.
    Followed by advice of few members here I'll be grabbing plain white open collar shirt and nice black shoes.

    All I need now is a tie, and I know nothing about style to know what will go well with my look.
    My budget is low, I would prefer to get a tie on a cheaper side, but I do not know how much realistically good ties cost, is $30 reasonable ? or am I unrealistic ?

    $30 probably won't get you a great tie unless you scour the thrift stores and end up finding one for $3 after much searching. Try eBay and the B&S forum here. You may get lucky on one. But you can get an acceptable, if mediocre quality tie, for much less. Try thetiebar.com. Also ties-necktie.com is a SF affiliate that has some ties in your price range:

    I have no personal experience with either one though.

    Also, in before people start bashing you for wearing black to your wedding. Also, in before people start bashing Z Zegna.

    You might go through this thread. There are good advices therein.

    If you don't want to bother and are fine with the idea of a non-silk $30ish wedding tie, go here and buy whichever works best with your coloration and whim.

    If you don't want to think too much, you can just go with glen plaid.

    Cheap (or search their other glen plaid options)

    Good (also check out kw's shepherd check)

    I got a silver gray and black glen plaid slim Ben Sherman tie for $20 at Nordstrom Rack. Some days you get lucky in there so give it a try.

    There's a RLPL glen plaid tie on eBay right now if you don't mind pre-owned.

    I'll try to see if he would ship to Canada, too bad you can only see how the tie actually looks once it gets to you :(
    So hard to try to imagine it from pictures.
    Hope something like this would look nice.

    There is nothing specific about the tie that mandates wearing a pocket square, though you certainly could if you want. Do not match the pocket square to the tie. Start off with a white linen pocket square (also sold by Kent Wang), and go from there. See the ongoing Pocket Square thread for more information.
