Personally, I don’t think the dad needs to match the groomsmen or ushers. So, I would let my dad wear whatever he feels comfortable in and have the groomsmen dressed how we like.

I don’t think you need to base what the groomsmen or anyone else in your wedding are wearing on what your dad is wearing.

I think if your father is filipino or if you are in a place/culture where it woudln’t look out of place then by all means go for it. I don’t think your father necessarily has to match the bridal party.
EDIT: i realized that might have come accross as rude, it wasn’t meant that way. I just meant it is “I have never seen a shirt like that in my life and people would make strange comments about it here” If you guests know what it is then I think it is awesome, I love the details on the front personally.

I agree. I think it looks great, and there’s no need to match anyone else to him.

I think its cool- let him do it- no need to match the other guys.

Let him- it will make him feel better about himself and there is no rule saying that the groomsmen need to match FOB.

I think it would be cool if your dad stood out a little. It would be easiest for the groomsmen and ushers to wear suits.

I WISH my dad would wear a barong. The men in our party are wearing gray tuxedos. However we’re going to have our ring bearer and coin bearer wear barongs with their own gray slacks.

I think him just wearing it will be fine 🙂 Maybe add a flower like your picture to dress it up a bit. He will stand out as the Father of the Bride and will be alot more comfortable 🙂

Best of luck
