My FH was asking if his dad should wear the same tux as him or should he just get a traditional tux with the bow tie. My FH is wearing a more modern looking tux with no vest and a regular tie. I thought his dad should wear a regular traditional tux and not the same as him. What is everyone’s opinion??

What we decided to do was keep everyone in the same style, just change tie colors. The groomsmen will wear blue to match the Bridesmaid or Best Man and the others Father or the Bride, Officiant, Father of the Groom, etc will wear the same color just have a different accent on their boutonniere.
Not sure what everyone else is doing, but we wanted our wedding party to look similar from afar with subtle details at a closer look.

Yeah, more traditional, let the groom stand out.

We are doing suits but from what we understand the Father of the Bride should match or be really similar to the guys since he will probably be in more pictures throughout the night. The Father of the Groom should match as well, but he can pick his own.

Ours all wore the same tuxes but my dad wore a bowtie instead. I don’t think it matters as much–if your dad wants to wear the same tux, that’s one thing but if he wants to wear a more traditional one, let him do that. Sometimes dads don’t get the styles…i know my dad was very adamant about wearing the same tie as the rest of the guys (regular tie) and scoffed at them NOT wearing bow ties! Whatever I said, wear your bowtie! =]

Ours are wearing traditional tuxes with black vests and bow ties, different from everyone else. And I picked out two different vest patterns to make them each a little different from the other.

I don’t think it matters that much, but our consultant that helped us order our tuxes sure seemed to think it was important! We settled for having my dad wear a vest and tie that were more of a tan color, while the groom and groomsman wore chocolate brown vests. That was a way to separate them. Just some ideas 🙂
