Your opinion is appreciated as I try to choose a tie out of these three to wear to my wedding. The Other two will probably go to my father and brother.

After reading up on wedding ties here, I believe I have acceptable patterns. Out of the three, the middle one is narrower and I'd say ties the nicest knot. The suit is charcoal and the ties are all black, silver, and little white.

Thanks for your help.

I prefer the left tie for a wedding. The tie in the centre is quite nice, but I prefer brighter, more cheerful tones for weddings and festive occasions. The tie in the middle is a bit too sombre for my liking.

They're all fine, but I personally like the one on the right.

I suggest going with the one you yourself just like the look of best.

+1 The middle one is my favourite in general, but for a wedding my vote goes to the one on the right.

They're basically all the same. My vote is to go with the one you like most.

Left or right, as others have said, the middle one is a bit sedate, but none would be wrong. And having your brother & father wear the other two should make for a festive, but non-matchy-matchy look.

I like the one on the right; however, the one on the middle will make you stand out if your father and brother are wearing the other two.

But like another poster said, I'd rather that people wear something a little bright on a wedding day, and the ones on the left and the right are both a bit less... sober?

It's a Calvin Klein tie, I got it from a department store. I don't recall which one, it might've been Macy's.
