although i don’t know 100% i would think it would be the same as the groomsmen in that case.   or that’s what i would do at least.

I wish I could help you on this one, all I can say is that our goomsmen are all wearing tuxes and so are my Father and my FI’s Father.  I think that having your Father wear the same shirt as the groomsmen would absolutely ok, or you could find him another colour to wear that will work well with your wedding colours.

I don’t know what protocol dictates either, but I would want my groom to be set apart from everyone.

When I went in to pick out FI’s attire, the boutique considered my father part of the wedding party and told me he should wear the same tux as the groomsmen.  Hope this helps!

All of our men wore white shirts, but we differentiated with vests and ties.

  • My husband wore white vest and white tie
  • The groomsmen wore black vests and red ties
  • My dad (and my father-in-law) wore black vests and black ties.

I definitely wanted my groom to stand out a bit. Does that help?

I have been having this same delimma! I think that Fiance decided on a grey suit instead of tux and was thinking of buying all of his groomsman ties. He asked if he should buy  my dad one to wear and honestly I dont know.

I know the grooms people things a little different but the MOG and MOB aren’t wearing Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, so I dont know why the dads need to match exactly either? lol (I am kind of kidding, obviously it’s not the same..) I just don’t know if I should tell my Dad that he has to wear a certain tie/shirt when he is paying for my wedding.

The tux route would have been so much easier!

All our guys wore black shirts. Our colors were blue, so the Groomsmen wore blue vests and ties, hubs wore a black pinstripe vest that came with his suit, and my dad wore red to match my mom (in honor of my grandma who had past the year before). My Mother-In-Law wore red (coincidence) and my Father-In-Law wore a dark gray suit with a dark blue/green shirt and tie that complimented it. It definitely didn’t look bad at all once it was all put together

My dad likes to be fashionable so he has decided to wear a tux he owns instead of renting the same ones the groomsman and the grooms father are wearing. The groomsmen are all wearing navy blue vests and ties, my dad is wearing fuchsia. My colors are navy and fuchsia.

Yeah if you think he should go with turquoise, I’d just go with that 🙂 

I was asking what color of vest my father should be wearing, and the man where we were getting our rentals said that typically the vest would match the MOB’s dress. He is just getting black because that is what he prefers, the groomsmen are green and my Fiance will be ivory.
