My dad is walking me down the aisle. I’m going to have him rent the tux from the same place as my Fiance and all the other men in the wedding party.

I think that the FOB’s tux should be distinguished from the other wedding party but not by that much…. 

Good luck.

My dad is wearing the same thing as our groomsmen – a black suit, white button down shirt, a light pink & gray tie and a gray pocket square.

Both of my parents are walking me down the isle. Mom is wearing a long black skirt and a really neat wrap/jacket/top thing in Blue. The highlights are turquoise and the lowlights are purple. 

Dad is wearing a grey suit with a silver shirt and a tie that goes with mom’s top. 

Our groomsmen are wearing a grey suit, but not the same as dad’s. 

To me, it was important that the parents look good together and that they generally don;t clash with the wedding party, but don’t “match” either. 

Both parents were highly motivated about looking good. Mom got her outfit first and when dad and I went shopping, he brought mom’s top so he could match his tie. So cute 🙂

he wore the same chocolate brown tux that the gm wore, except my dad’s vest was brown instead of cinnamon.

What a nice dad! I love my dad but he hates buying clothes except at Goodwill. The plan is for him to wear and navy suit and a turquoise-ish tie he already has. He is walking me down the aisle. The groomsmen are wearing black tuxes, so they won’t match – dad will have to have a suit altered to fit him so renting wouldn’t work, and a navy suit is more versatile.

I would vote for him wearing his own tux because it already fits him. I would get all his measurements and then when you’ve decided on colors you can get him a shirt. It will be easy to mail him a shirt so he can make sure it fits. Alternatively, an ivory or white shirt is always safe. It seems like he shouldn’t be exactly like the groomsmen anyway.

My dad walked me down the aisle in a black suit (the groomsmen wore tuxes, dads wore suits).  My colors were aqua and white, so the groomsmen had solid aqua ties and I got my dad a striped aqua/white/turquoise tie.  It let him look like part of the wedding group but not the exact same as a groomsman.

He’ll be wearing a suit, and we’ll probably buy him a tie to go with the colors of the wedding. Originally when we were renting tuxes for the guys, he was going to get a tux as well, but we’ve changed all of the guys to wearing suits, so my dad will too!

My dad’s just wearing a dark colored suit and I can’t decide about the shirt and tie. I’m leaning toward white and a tie in one of our accent colors, but I’m not sure. Not really good at picking out menswear. He’s walking me down the aisle with my mom.

I think if the Groomsmen are wearing tuxes than the dad should wear the same.  However, since my Groomsmen are wearing a brown suit, I am not sure what my dad is going to wear.  I think he may try to buy a similar but different shade of brown suit and still wear the same accessories.  He really doesn’t want to look like a Groomsmen especially since my brother is a Groomsmen and will be in many of our pictures.

My dad is walking me down the aisle and is wearing a pretty basic tux with a black vest and a neck tie.  It will have a two button jacket and a regular collared shirt.  FI’s dad will wear the same.  The groomsmen’s jackets button up higher and are a little longer.  The only one not wearing a black tie and a vest is my Fiance.  He’s wearing white.
