My dad is walking me down the aisle, and I’m not sure what color his tie should be? My fiance is doing ivory, and the groomsmen a pale blue color. Does my dad match the groomsmen? I’m clueless on this for some reason. Thanks!

@Kimmers127: I think it is totally up to you. I would say that if he is going to match anyone, it would be the groomsmen. The groom is supposed to stand out. My Dad wore his dress blues so I didn’t have to worry about it.

My dad coordinated his vest/tie with what my mom was wearing.
ETA: My FIL coordinated with my MIL too.

We let my Dad go with whatever he wanted. In the end, he wore a black tie with his tux and wingtip shoes. He loved it and said if he was going to do it, he was going to do it right. Our groomsmen and my Groom all wore Converse. My Dad looked great and didn’t clash.

My dad went with a white undershirt, but he had a black tux, vest and tie at my sister’s wedding. He looked pretty dapper and he was really happy with it. I think we’ll have him do the same at mine.

I think its most important for the FOB to compliment the bride and her bouquet, (if its not white/ a muted colour) and also compliment the MOB. If you think about it, he won’t really be with the groomsmen at any point, nor in photos with them…. but he will be in all your pics coming down the aisle, and all the family pics with your mom.

Hmm… I hadn’t thought of black, that could be a possibility! I like the idea of making him stand out from the groomsmen a little. Maybe I’ll run that idea past my fiance, and consider the blue as a backup. Thanks bees!

I agree that the FOB should do his own thing and not match anybody else.

My colors are gold pink and creams so my groom is wearing ivory, groomsmen and ushers are wearing pink and FIL is wearing gold!

our dads wore the same color ties as the tuxedos. So groomsmen were in one color, groom had ivory, and the dads were in brown ties since the tuxes were also brown.
