First I’ll start off with what my wedding party attire is. The groomsmen & groom will be wearing dark blue jeans with cowboy boots and I originally wanted to put the groom in ivory to match my dress and the groomsmen in chocolate brown western shirts. My bridesmaids are wearing “apple red” (a darker red) short dresses with cowboy boots. I took my Mom & Mother-in-law dress shopping together and they both picked out the exact same dress except my mother is keeping hers long and MI is having hers short. I wasn’t sure about the mother’s blue but it was the only color the dress came and both Mom’s were thrilled! Now I’m completely lost what to dress my Dad in. I was just going to put him in a nice western shirt like the rest of the guys but my Mom’s dress is more on the fancy side and I’m afraid his attire won’t match hers. So I thought about putting him in an ivory shirt with a nice chocolate brown suit jacket. Do I also have to worry about what the groom’s father is wearing? What if he shows up in black? And if my Dad is wearing a suit jacket should the groom and his father be wearing one too?Note: this is not the dress my girls are wearing but it is the color. Help!!

Hm…why not put both dads in Navy blazers over tan shirts? Sets them apart but keeps with the color combinations.

I can’t believe the Moms went shopping together and they still decided on the same dress. Are they hoping the other will change their mind? lol
As for your question, what about Charcoal suit? Or tan pants and a light blue shirt? Or Black pants and a white shirt?

No I deffinately do not want to turn this into an american flag theme. haha. I don’t think we will have any pictures with the parents and the bridal party in red anyway. The Groom and his Brothers will be in pictures with their parents though so I don’t think the father should be in black when the groomsmen are in brown? I’m leaning towards the fathers in an ivory shirt with a chocolate brown jacket and dark blue jeans.

I was going to suggest white as well 😛 but sincerely, I would see if he can coordinate with your mom because that adds visual cohesion.

Yeah, I’d just ask him to coordinate with your mother. That is who he’ll be standing next to for pics for the most part, right? And since the mom’s chose to coordinate, I guess the dads kind of need to as well. I wouldn’t ask them to wear the EXACT same thing – it will look a little over-planned, but the same colors would be fine.
I agree that black might look weird next to what the groomsmen and your FI will be wearing. What if he wears brown and ivory? Like an ivory shirt and brown suit jacket? I don’t know. I wouldn’t stress over it though, they don’t have to match exactly.

I’d rather take out the jackets now all together. Here is a picture of the grooms on the left, mom in the center, dad on the right. And I’ll just ask the father of the groom to wear brown of his choice. What do you girls think?
