This is confusing. The groomsmen are wearing light gray suits with vests. Brother is walking mom down the aisle but is not officially part of the wedding party. Should he match the groomsmen or wear the same as dad? Girls and moms are in long gowns so I think he should wear a three piece suit. Advice please.

What’s dad wearing and what are your colors? Maybe a darker grey suit?

I vote either match your dad or dark grey.

@applehilluser: Grey, navy, black- basically anything he likes except brown.

My brother was in the same situation as yours. We put him in a tux matching the groomsmen. I think your brother would be fine matching either or.

I’ve never been in that situation but my instinct says match his dad. It makes more sense that he matches his dad (who, like him, is on the bride’s side) than to match the groomsmen who are on the groom’s side.
That said, IMO it doesn’t matter if he doesn’t match anyone.

@applehilluser: I would put him in the same color family as the groomsmen, maybe a medium or dark gray suit and give him a boutonniere (so people know he’s important).
What is your dad wearing? I think it would be okay for brother to match dad.

If he wears the same as the groomsmen and wears a boutoinerre then we can use him as an usher as well. Maybe he could even ride in the limo and feel more like part of the wedding party.

My brothers wore whatever the hell they wanted. I think it was just white shirts and slacks.

Let him wear what he wants, but if he asks because he isn’t particular, color coordinate him, but not match exactly.

My brother is in the bridal party. So he’s wearing what they are.
Lid just let him wear whatever he wants.

@Duncan: Depending on the formalitly of the wedding, yes. Not all weddings are formal enough for every man to wear a suit.
