I think it is absolutely okay. And I think if you’re really worried about your dad’s clashing, get them each a tie, not matching but coordinating — and in your wedding colors, as your gift to them, and make sure they each get a new white shirt. 

That would look nice, be low stress, and still let everyone be themselves.

I have seen it done many times like that so I know it will look fine.  I don’t see why your dad should have to wear a tux and match the bridal party, I think that nice black suits look very appropriate with tuxes.
