I had my dad in a basic black tux with black vests and tie which matched the rest of the GMs. Since the wedding was black and white, the basic tux worked out perfectly for them.

Since he already has a suit, you aren’t going to have to get him fitted unless you a renting a vest or something.  You need to decide on a tie and shirt color though.  My dad had a black tie and vest with a white shirt.

my dad will be wearing a suit in the same color as the groomsmen. His tie will be a different color than them though. Something in the same color palette… we’re doing semi-formal so no tux… Do know know what color Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses you will be getting? If, not have him do a tie the same color as his tux.

hope this helps…good luck!

Black and white is simple and classic – I would suggest on keeping him in his suit so it’s fitted properly and just buy a tie you like for him – it would also be a nice little gift. This is the only thing that my dad is obsessing about – what he’s gonig to wear! We haven’t even decided what the groom/groomsmen will wear – haha!

WOW I am so jealous of you all.  My dad wants to wear the one suite jacket he owns which is a dark green (the groomsmen and Fiance are wearing black tuxes with purple ties).  I am trying to tell him how important this is to me and how he is walking me down the aisle and will be in a lot of pictures but I don’t think he is getting it.  UGH!!

My dad will be walking me down the aisle and will be wearing the same tux (basic CK tux from Mens Warehouse) as Fiance and the rest of the boys but probably a different tie.  We’re gifting the GMs with blue ties, but I think the dads (FI’s dad is tuxing it too) will wear either black or gray ties to keep it more classic. 

If he has the tux part already, and you’re OK with it, he shouldn’t really need to worry about anything else.  Any accessories/ties/pocket-things you may decide on between now and Oct shouldn’t need him physically there to choose.  Unless you want something to “bring out his eyes” 😉

My dad is walking me down the aisle. I would really like him to wear a black tux (which he already owns) with cummerbund and bow tie. However, he has this idea of wearing a tux similar to one that Paul McCartney wore at a recent concert. I think this is it:

and I don’t really like it. So we’ll see. I told my mom that she’s in charge of making sure he’s dressed properly. As for tie/”accessories”, he’ll wear a black tie/bow tie and have a bout–probly one that is similar, but doesn’t necessarily match the groomsmen.

My parents are both walking me down the aisle. I know my dad was considering wearing a guayabera, but his girlfriend will probably make him wear a suit. I can’t imagine him without a Panama Hat though.

@KLP2010 – You can get two kinds of ‘ivory’ shirts – when we were getting my FI’s tux they asked me the color of my dress and I said Ivory and they gave him a real yellow tone which I said didn’t go with my dress and then he brought out another – so there are options to yellow shirts – make sure you go with them to make sure they get the right one.  And YES please call my dad lol – I know he is excited about the wedding he calls me a couple of times a week to talk about stuff but doesn’t see the reason for dressing up.

I think your Dad should wear his tux with a white shirt and black tie. You can coordinate your Fiance with what you’re wearing, but your Dad doesn’t really need to match anyone else.

I like Paul’s tux!

My husband walked my daughter down the aisle and wore a black tux,white shirt,black tie, but his tux was different than the groom and Groomsmen. Her gown was diamond white.

For this wdding,he’s also walking her down,but will be wearing a darker natural colored linen suit, ivory shirt, tie matching the suit. Her gown is ivory, but this one is at the beach!

My dress is also ivory and the wedding store people told me that I should make the guys all wear ivory shirts instead of white so it doesn’t make my dress look dirty. I doubt that the ivory shirts would make it too yellow, unless there is bright white to compare with, ivory with all ivory will look white. Does that make sense?
