Can you have them wear same colored ties? Something that goes with your wedding colors. Or a very unique boutonnière.

We are having our dads wear tuxes.

I am having my dad and brother wear the same time and pocket square as the groomsmen so people can see that we consider them to be a part of our bridal party.

I do like your idea of having them wear your accent color though.  Very nice!

My groomsmen were in tuxes with teal ties/vests and my husband’s dad wore a red tie/vest with my husband wearing an ivory tie/vest to match me. It looked quite nice and the colors went well. Oh, the gentleman who walked me down the aisle wore a silver tie/vest. It sounds a bit busy, but it actually looked very good together.

Do you want something more than a boutonnière or are you not doing bout’s?

I do like the red tie idea though!

Pull a Britney Spears and bedazzle tha back with “Pimp Daddy”? Kiddind…we’re having special bouts made for the dads and grandpas and special corsages for the moms and grandmas. They’ll also be in a different tie than the groomsman.

Maybe you can do the red ties for them and pocket sqares. May sound cheesy, but a tie that has all three colors?? black,white, and red. Just a thought.

Our colors are navy blue and green but I wanted to wear red shoes (it’s kind of my signature thing). So I bought my dad a red tie and dyed my shoes to match the tie. He is so excited and feels so cool that he and I will be the only ones wearing red. The bridesmaids and groomsmen will be wearing the navy and green.
