I hope not, because I plan to have my dad wear his military uniform.  The only person he better be matching is me!  (Their formal dress uniforms are white.)  Have him wear whatever you want and don’t worry about rules.

They dont have to at all. Why not have your dad wear the black suit? A brown suit is going to be just as hot so I dont think that matters. Both of our dads wore black suits and wore the same tie as the groomsmen but thats because our dads wanted to do it this way.

My dad can do what he wants…but He’ll probably get a suit similar to the men’s, just for uniformity. But I think a black suit will be fine if it makes him happy!

At my sister’s wedding, my dad matched the groomsmen exactly. I asked his opinion on my wedding and he wants to match them again. So I’m just gonna go with whatever he wants! He’s the one who has to wear it!

Both our dads got the matching groomsmen outfits.  The moms really wanted it and I could have cared less so they went for it!  If it makes them happy then why not?  What about a similar suit?  Or black w/matching tie & bout?

My Dad is matching the wedding party. Since the wedding party is going to stand out in their outfits i wanted my dad to stand out as well.

My father matched our wedding party. I guess he can due whatever he wants but I just think it would really stand out in pictures if everyone else is wearing light brown.

My dad is not matching the bridal party.  Our guys will be in classic black tuxedoes but my dad doesn’t like wearing black.  So my dad is wearing a medium gray tux instead.

We are having our Dad’s match the groomsmen, the only thing that will be different is his boutonniere will be a little bit different to give him something different than the groomsmen. In the end it’s all up to you and your preferences:-)

Our guys didn’t wear vests, but our fathers did. They thought it was strange not to, so they didn’t completley match the groomsmen. They wore purple vests and bow ties and the wedding party wore black bow ties only.

My FI and groomsmen will be in solid black tuxes and my dad will be in a black tonal stripe suit. Coordinated but not matching. I think the dads can wear whatever.
