I’m having a hard time deciding what the Father of the Bride should wear.
The groom, best man and wedding party will be wearing tan linen pants, white shirts and tan linen vests. The best man and groomsmen will be wearing a plaid bowtie in shades of coral and green. The groom will be wearing a solid coral bowtie.
I’m thinking that the Father of the Bride should wear the same pants, but instead of a vest he should wear the matching jacket and either a coral checked bowtie or a regular tie. I just don’t see him wearing the vest only.

@dittobelle: I think that is a good idea with the coral or green tie. Maybe put him in a tan color that is a shade darker, and the green a little darker than everyone else? That way it sets him apart a little more.
My colors are guava and aqua blue, with all the groomsmen in all black tuxes, black shirt and black tie, in a aqua vest. My dad is going to be in the all black too, but with a pewter/silver vest and tie. The color goes well with the other wedding colors, and the color represents a more regal and importmant air.
Men’s Wearhouse is really good about giving advice about what the FOB and FOG should be in, if you were really stuck.

Those two colors will really pop against the black tuxes!
Thanks so much for your advice. I didn’t think about a green tie for the Father, but I like that idea.
