    I personally would prefer they match, but I totally get being between a rock and a hard place. How much does your dad want to wear the vest?

    I also don’t think it’s that big of a deal if he wears something different. Basically, I don’t think either direction is that big of a deal… it’s just who is willing to be flexible first, your dad or your FI?

    I can relate a little bit on being surprised with guys being particular about tuxes though. Ipicked out the tuxes for the whole party (groomsmen in black/purple, Fiance in black/silver, dads in black/black). I sent them to my dad and he was like “These aren’t very festive. Can I wear a different color?”

    No, no you may not. He got over it. LOL (Actually, I wrote him a really long email with my thoughts on the “look” and a few other options, like a blue. I photoshopped the different tuxes together and he saw that I had put a lot of thought into it and black was the classiest looking option given the colors other people were wearing.)

    I too have a personal preference for them to match, but to be honest, I don’t think people will notice if they don’t match.
