@jayebee: It would be inappropriate for the Dad to be dressed more formally than the groom.

Agreed. Dont put him in a tux for a beach wedding. I would ask him to wear a similar ensemble as the groom. Maybe black slacks, black or gray button up top, and a coordinating but not matching tie. Do you have any accent colors? Maybe make the tie in that color instead.

@jayebee:  I think a black and white striped tie and a gray button up would look great. I would not put him in the same color tie as the groom.
