Hmm I like the idea of a complimentary blue shirt and beige pants. I also like white too, if you want your groom to stand out. I personally would prefer for my dad to have a tie under these circumstances since he does play a special role.

Don’t go with a shirt and tie without a vest or jacket over it.  It’s not the greatest look. How about just a different, summery colour of pants and vest? Light grey, or another shade of buff, would be good.

Most older men would be more comfortable with a lightweight sportsjacket than just a shirt and pants. That’s a bit too casual for a wedding.

A blue linen blazer would look great and co-ordinate with the groom’s outfit.

The problem with a blazer is that that makes him more formal than the groom.  That particular sport coat, with no structure is not suited to be worn with wool dress pants.  It really helps Aug jeans.  Mixing levels of formality always looks off.
