I think your idea is fine.  My dad and Future Father-In-Law will be wearing tuxes, but we’re also having a formal wedding where tuxes are appropriate for any guests. 

I think the only issue is that the dad’s should match the mom’s in formality.  Meaning, if mom is wearing a sundress, dad shouldn’t have a tux.

Their aren’t any formal rules on this. I think it’s up to you guys! It might be nice to do something to set them apart from the groomsmen.

Our dads are wearing the same tuxes as the groomsmen, with different ties. I don’t think there’s any specific rules on what they should wear. We wanted them to look nice, but stand out from the groomsmen.

Our fathers are renting tuxes with bowties in black. The groom & company are wearing matching tuxes. We haven’t told them the exact tux we’re using, so the dads will probably not have the exact same tuxes. The groomsmen will have coordinating lue vests, bowties, and pocket squares. The dads will have black.

The dads are wearing the black version of the groomsmen’s grey tux.

All the guys are wearing the same tux with the same color vest/tie under, including the groom, groomsmen, and my dad.  They are going to look sharp.  😉
