    Have you talked to your dad about it?  Meaning – “Dad, why is it so important for the guys to be in suits?”

    Maybe if you just have the conversation, it will resolve the issue.  Your dad wants to be heard on the topic and it’s turning into an unnecessary war……

    I don’t agree with how your dad is going about things or the way he’s expressing himself, but I do think you may want to consider having the Groomsmen in at least long pants. A groom in a tux and the Groomsmen in shorts and rolled-up sleeves doesn’t really have a consistent feel to it. It’s discordant and a little confused. I’d dress those Groomsmen up just a little bit. Not because your dad says so, but because the group as a whole will look sharper.

    It’s not sp much a class thing, but a consistency in theme, at least for me.

    You’re the bride- and you have made plans so you should do what you want….No suits- but please have them in khaki pants. 

    However Long sleeves, shorts, and a tie- seem unfit. I have never seen someone wear a tie with shorts…if you love the shorts- skip the tie.

    What the shoe situation? Pants are more forgiving- you don’t want sad looking socks and shoes in your pictures.

    I’m all about you doing your thing- but hy is the groom wearing a tux and they are so casual?

    Groom in a tux just doesn’t work with Groomsmen in shorts.
