Personally for my own wedding I think the clothes of the wedding party should reflect the formality of the event and dads and groomsmen should either all be in suits for a less formal wedding or all be in tuxes for a more formal wedding.

But that’s just for my own wedding, in general I’d say it really doesn’t matter. Do what will make your Dad happy and it sounds like he really likes his suit.   Everyone will be looking at you as you walk down the aisle and not a single person will notice that he’s in a suit and not a tux. It’s not a big deal.

I am dong the same thing.  I think that the Dad’s should get to  be their own thing.  After all, they aren’t groomsmen, right?  If you dad is excited – let him wear what he will feel comfortable in!  With everyone and their beaming smile it will look great no matter what.  I am having the gm wear a tux because it was sinply easier to make sure they all look the same (they are all from different areas) than giving them giudelines.  My dad went out and bought a suit as well and I say go for it!  I am not doing a bow tie for the gm or Mr. Wonderful, so there won’t be a "who’s more formal" factor.

Good Luck!
