    They wear whatever they want. There’s no rule.

    We let my FFIL choose, and he wanted to wear what FI and the groomsmen are wearing, so we’re just going to get him a different tie.

    My SO is wearing a double breasted tux, his grooms men are wearing regular black tuxes and my dad is wearing a black suit with a black tie. He picked out his own outfit months ago lol. My dad is quite fashion forward so I let him pick himself. I just want everyone to be happy and comfortable at the end of the day 🙂

    I think either is fine. We did the groom + groomsmen in grey, and the dads in the same tux, but in black.

    Everyone wore the same tux. Groom wore a patterned navy/purple tie, solid navy vest. Groomsmen wore solid navy ties, solid navy vests. Dads wore silver ties and vests.

    Uhh, I was a little confused by your choices… but my father and FIL are wearing tuxedos that they already own. Both are black, but both are COMPLETELY different than the GMs and Groom’s tux. FIL’s is a peak collar, and my dad’s has a satin trim on the coller, with a satin pinstripe going down the pants. I couldn’t care less. Is my mom matching the BMs? No! Then why should my dad? Both my dad and FIL are wearing black vests and black ties though (because they want to).

    My groom wore a black suit with a white shirt and black vest and bowtie. Groomsmen wore the same, but with a regular black necktie. FOG wore same with a red vest and tie (to match MOG’s chosen dress), and FOB wore same w/ white tie and vest (he didn’t want to wear any color and “distract” from my dress walking me down the aisle.

    So – everyone wore the same suit, just w/ different vest and ties.

    Essentially whatever they want. Our guys were in dark grey pinstripe suits, and our fathers both chose black suits. As long as they aren’t choosing anything really out of the ordinary (Dumb and Dumber orange and blue), you should be fine.

    I did work with my dad to select a tie that would coordinate with my mom and with our general theme colors, but he wanted my input. My FIL wore a tie that didn’t really match anything, but it’s a minimal detail and he felt comfortable.

    @Mercy2250:  You can really go any of those directions.  I would say let them wear a lighter colour, given the location.

    @medbride:  is right – the fathers do not HAVE to be incoroporated with a certain uniform.

    The fathers wear whatever they want. They aren’t part of the bridal party.
