    Yup, you’re being a bridezilla all right.

    ETA: They’re your parents, not fashion accessories.  They have a right to feel comfortable and feel good about the way they look.

    The parents do NOT match the bridal party unless they want to. You are being a bridezilla.

    Yes, you’re being a bridezilla.  I’m not sure how to word a reply without sounding snarky, so I’ll try to word it as politely as possible.  Your dad can dress himself, he’s a capable adult and isn’t going to show up looking like a clown.  Whether he’s in gray, blue, black… who cares?  Nobody.  Even you won’t on that day because you’ll be far too busy with other stuff.  And other stuff will go wrong, so brace yourself.  If this makes you freak out, this is going to be a very bumpy ride.

    Do you plan on having a picture with your parents AND the wedding party together? If so, then I get where you are coming from with the whole matchy match idea. But, if not and pictures with your father will be just him walking you down the aisle and pictures with you and your parents, then I don’t see the problem with him wearing a different coloured suit.

    Sorry, but your Dad is not part of the bridal party. He can and should wear whatever he wants. I agree with your Mom in that regard, unless he wants something a bit outrageous, color wise.

    Yes you are out of control and you should reel it in.  Your parents should dress however they want.

    @SarahVee:  No you shouldn’t have a say. The parents are NOT part of the bridal party. They should clearly look like not part of the bridal party. Do you really want your dad to be mistaken for an usher or a groomsman? Besides, when you get too matchy, things look less wedding and more prom.

    @SarahVee:  If it’s part of your culture, wouldn’t your parents be on board?

    Ya, you aren’t being very fair.  Your parents aren’t part of the bridal party you should apologize to your mom.

    I would be curious to know a little more about your cultural background, as it sounded like your parents were planning to do their own thing specifically because they are from a different country.
