Personally, I’d let them wear a full suit, just because they’re from the generation that expects to. I would also ask them to match your party, just because it creates a cohesiveness with pictures, boutineires and such. If they don’t want to or can’t afford to  purchase/rent a suite of the grey colour, then I’d say black with maybe a grey vest and pocket square with the purple tie. 

Chances are your moms will try to colour match as well. In fact, I’m taking the moms on the same day as my girls to pick out dresses, so we can find a style in the same colour family they can both be happy with.

Hope this helps.

We are having our dads rent suits with the rest of the wedding party.  The suits are the same, the vests and ties are different.  I would let your dad’s wear real, full suits though. Black suits with grey vests?

My Dad and my husbands Dad just wore whatever they wanted.  Only their ties had to match our wedding colors.  Of course, my father wore a purple bowtie.  I am still rolling my eyes, but at least my mother thought it was sweet.
