It Takes Two: His & His Wedding Accessories
1. TIE THE KNOT
Handcrafted to order bowties by PINO Portland come in a rainbow of matching colors and fabrics. These ties are old school—no snaps or Velcro. Feel free to refresh bowtie-tying skills via YouTube before the big day. $88 each.
2. MARRY GO-ROUND
PINO Portland’s sumptuous Italian linen pocket rounds are hand-made in Portland for a less fussy version of the pocket square. Finished edge’s thread color can be matched to the wedding palette as well. $58.
3. PICK A POSY
Popping up from Oregon wine corks, boutonnières of colorful spring blossoms by Portland’s Wildflower bring a bit of whimsy and charm to the grooms’ lapels. $10 each.
4. PIN ME
For a sweet woodsy touch, Two Guys Bow Ties combine walnut “petals” with rich wool for a lapel pin that won’t fade away. $45 each.
5. LOVE IS IN THE AIR
Each bottle of Portland perfumer Heather Sielaff’s OLO fragrances is blended by hand and bottled to order. “Erastus” evokes salty Pacific Ocean air with notes of cedar and smoke; a true Northwest scent. $45 at Milk Milk Lemonade.
6. TRAY BIEN
For sheer rustic luxury, Eugene’s WILL Leather Goods' Sao Palo tray set is the ultimate place to stash wedding day necessities. Unsnap the corners and the trays lay flat for easy travel. $85/set of three.
7. PUT A RING ON IT
Portland’s Sticks & Stones takes exotic woods and unexpected materials (think fossilized shark teeth) and after a good amount of sanding, polishing, waxing and buffing, emerges a fabulous statement piece. Ebony cufflinks, $120. Ebony Uno ring, $85. Two-finger ring, $150.
8. TAKE A VOW
It might be the writing assignment of a lifetime, but with a pocket-sized kraft paper-covered notebook by Portland’s Scout Books, completing vows in time for the ceremony will be a cinch. $4.95. Kaweco pen, $68 at Canoe.
