we’ve decided that FI is wearing beige suit, white shirt, champagne tie.  GM are wearing beige pants, white, shirt light aqua/sage ties, no jacket. my dad is wearing a beige suit too (not the same one) but i bought him a tie that better matches my moms brown dress. so he matches the look but does not appear to be a gm.  since he is walking me down the aisle he should look like he belongs. FI’s dad has passed away so we don’t have to worry about dressing 2 dads.

i would say that he shouldnt wear a red tie (thats like the moms wearing the same color as the maids) but wear a complimentary color.

What is your dad wearing?  Maybe he can match him.  I had my wedding party in black tuxes.  THen the GMs wore vests to match the Bms and my husband wore a white vest to match me.  My father was in a black tux with a grey vest and tie.  DH’s dad would have been in the same, but he didn’t care to wear a tux.  And we didn’t care.

All of the men will have black tuxes. My FH will be in a black tux with a white vest, GMs will have green vests, and the fathers will have black vests. Our ushers will just be in black suits, cause we don’t want them to have to go buy something else (I really want them in black suits with black shirts and a white tie).

I don’t think it’s uncommon to have the fathers wearing something matching of the wedding party.  The wedding I was just in, the Father of the Bride wore the same suits and ties as the groomsmen.  We didn’t do that for my wedding, only because my Dad didn’t want to wear a suit, haha.  I don’t think your brothers need to match though!  But if your dads do, that’s okay!  🙂

Well we’re doing tuxes not suits but the dads are also wearing tuxes that do not match the wedding party.  My FI is wearing one tux and the GM are wearing a different style tux.  They’ll all have black vests and gold ties and FI’s flower will match mine while the GM’s flower will match the BMs.

The dad’s each picked their own style tux that is different from both FI’s and the GM’s.  They are choosing vests and ties that coordinated with my mom’s and my FMIL’s dresses.

I think you should have you dads in black suits like the wedding party but have them wear ties that coordinate with your mom and FMIL (not matching either your FI or the GM).  That way they look like they belong / fit in but aren’t matchy-matchy and don’t actually look like they could be a part of the wedding party.
