@Belliekel:  Is something wrong with the lavender tie? Lavender is a light color, like peach. And purple and orange / yellow go great together. Even if he’s changing his shirt to white, I think the purple is fine. He doesn’t need to match your groom or the groomsmen. He won’t be standing up there with them. He won’t look hideous in pictures with all of you. ๐Ÿ™‚ 

 

I think what he has is just fine. Especially with the white shirt. But my dad wore jeans and a buttondown shirt to my wedding (seriously the most casual wedding ever) and forgot to take his riding sunglasses off of his head during the whole thing. ๐Ÿ˜€ So…maybe I’m not the right person…?

 

In all seriousness, though, I have always had a good eye for colors and coordinating elements, even if I didn’t care about those things at my own wedding. I think your dad’s choices are lovely.

I always thought the father of the bride wore the same thing the groom/groomsmen wore…

But I don’t see anything wrong with what he has picked out.

@Belliekel:  is he completely opposed to a white shirt? I’m assuming he probably already has a plain white button up shirt, right?

buy him a nice white shirt? I’m sure he won’t mind wearing it, if you ask nicely ๐Ÿ˜‰

we’re having our dads wear the same tux as the groom/groomsmen but with a different tie and vest color.

my dad, and FI’s dad, are wearing the same tux as the rest of the guys. i think they’re all gonna have different ties, but they’ll all be in grey tuxes.
