@lambjo:  Ugh, I’m sorry you’re dealing with this! It’s amazing how picky the guys get, isn’t it? I would try showing him some of these photos to try and convince him. If not, let him wear white. 

We eloped, so no bridal party period for us, but I did find you a few inspiration photos! I hope they help out. Personally, I think it’s an awesome look! I think the groom in white and the rest of the bridal party in black looks especially nice, but if you can’t get his dad to budge I would leave it. Pick your battles. 😉

Have the groom differentiate his outfit from groomsmen. Groomsmen wore Calvin Klein suits with black vest and black shirt, and pink tie. Groom wore ivory shirt with black vest and pink tie. Grooms shirt had wingtip's versus folds. You want your groom to standout.

@lambjo:  That combination of clothes you described is something I would not wear with one exception: If I was part of a wedding party, and that’s what I was supposed to wear.  then I’d shut up, and do what the groom asked me to do.

Stick to your guns; you’ve given him two perfectly valid options.

my husband’s father was very paticular about what he wanted to wear because he wanted to stand out…so much so that he changed into a very loud outfit for the reception…whatever. his dealie bob. later folks were like wtf is wrong with him, he does realize it’s his son’s day and not his?
