What color tie should the father of the bride wear? My groom will be wearing ivory to match my dress and the groomsmen will be wearing meadow (a dessy color; sort of seafoam greenish) to match bridesmaids. I thought my dad should be different from the groomsmen and maybe wear a black tie. He says he’d like to wear the same color as the groomsmen.
What’s everyone else doing?

I’d let him pick… if you want, give him the option of groomsmen or black. I wouldn’t dictate what he wears, that’s going a little far IMO.

@AmeliaBedelia: agree. we have the dads in black because they don’t care, but I’d let him choose =)

I would find a tie with the green and ivory stripe- co-ordinating him with the wedding party but not identical.

Thanks for the comments everyone. I was pretty sure I’d let him do the green if that’s what he wanted.
I’ve got another question… what about ushers? What color tie for them? Should they be different from the groomsmen and my dad?
