Groom, Wedding Party, and Dad’s are all gonna be wearing black suits, white shirts,  and berry coloured vests and ties.  I’m thinking that they will all be the same.  Groom might be differen’t but i’m not sure.

My dad is wearing a brown suit that he owns, with a matching orange tie to the groomsmen.  (The groomsmen are wearing black tuxes w/ orange ties.)  I asked my dad if he wanted us to rent him a tux, but he was pretty adamant about not wanting a tux. 

On a side note, my dad is also threatening to wear a *bright purple shirt* with his brown suit and orange tie.  Bad father!

The only difference at my sister’s wedding was the Groom wore a white shirt and a purple stripe tie and the dads and groomsmen wore a light purple shirt and a purple striped tie.

Why not let your dad wear whatever he wants, but have some element that ties in with the groomsmen without exactly matching… like say a tie with pale blue in it? 

My husband and his groomsmen wore black suits with yellow gold ties with blue patterns that we bought for them.  My dad wore a dark navy suit because he looks like death in black (he’s very pale) and bought his own ties that was similar to the groomsmen’s.  So it tied in, but didn’t match and say hey, extra groomsman!

My Fiance will be wearing something similar.  I just had my dad wear a gray suit as well and switched up the tie.  Hope this helps!

I was thinking about getting the groom, Groomsmen, and fathers to wear the same with slightly different ties to differentiate everyone. Although I’m considering letting my dad wear a suit he has at home already, but I feel he ALWAYS wears the same suit so we’ll see! haha!

We aren’t having a wedding party, so I think that makes it a bit easier, but my Fiance is wearing a black suit and tie, with a white shirt and pocket share, plus silver cufflinks..  I told my dad he could wear whatever he wanted, except a navy suit (because I thought it might look weird against FI’s black in the pictures).  In the end, my dad bought a light grey suit, and I think we are going to get him a tie as a wedding thank you in our wedding colors that he can wear that day.
