Does anyone know what the father of the bride is supposed to wear? I have heard and read a few different opinions from etiquette "experts", magazine columns, and family advice so I'm not really sure what to go with!
Some people have said that he needs to match the groomsmen, others have said "no, he should match the groom", and then another said that he should just pick whatever vest and tie combo HE wants (the men in our bridal party are wearing suits with vests/ties, no tuxes).
I'm not sure what to tell my dad and he certainly has NO clue.
I am unsure as to whether my dad should wear a suit just like the groom/groomsmen or his own suit. Both my parents are walking me down the aisle. My mom thinks she'll have to wear a black dress if my dad wears the matching suit. Ack, so many stupid little decisions...
Fh and I are going back to the tux store to change the colors of his vest/tie and my dad's vest/tie. I just don't like them anymore. I had FH in a black vest and black and silver striped tie(groomsmen are wearing sage green vests and ties to match our colors). I also had picked out a silver vest and silver tie for my dad, but I'm thinking now that was a bad idea. Any thoughts? I thought the father of the bride was supposed to stand apart, but now it seems like he's supposed to match everyone else.
I'm wearing an ivory dress so I was going to go with an ivory vest/ivory tie for FH. Should my dad wear the same? I'm not really keen on him wearing a sage green vest and tie to go with the other 4 groomsmen. I don't know though?!
As if a bride doesn't already have enough to think about!
My groomsmen are wearing black tuxes, my dad is picking something else, but a tux still. I told him to wear a tun, but past that he can pick whatever he wants. He has good taste and I want him to feel special...not like a groomsman. I say leave it up to your dad. Afterall, this is a big day for him too.
Besides walking me down the aisle, my dad is also marrying me and fh..he is a preacher. He will be wearing a tux with a black vest and black tie. Groomsmen are wearing a brown vest (actually called truffle) and tie, while fh is wearing a white vest and white tie. I thought that since he is marrying us that he should wear something different from the groom and groomsmen.
