Dad's attire- need some advice! (a bit long)

Recommended Posts

Okay, my dad wanted to wear a tux too! LOL! He kept on telling my mom that he was going to wear one...period. Finally I told him that we will go shopping together for his outfit, once my FI figures out what he will wear. He ended up being okay with that.

 

I think he felt left out cause my mom and I went shopping for her dress together. My dad also muttered something about not knowing what he was going to wear cause no one has paid attention to him. LOL...he is a little bit drama, so I ignored it.

boht our dads AND the groom are wearing a tan suit at our wedding. your dad is going to be mega-effin hot in a tux on the beach... let him know you spoke with your WC or something and they said everyone should wear something light and breezy like light colored linen... then you pass the blame onto someone who cant feel bad about telling your dad what to wear, but you still will make your groom happy :)

HAHA- He certainly wouldn't listen to my mom! (they're bitterly divorced)

 

I think I will try the approach of taking him shopping. He might actually like that and feel like he's included a bit in the bridal party (even though there isn't one lol). Colin's okay with it provided it's not the exact same outfit. So we'll change them up somehow... it would be easier if Colin would wear a tie but he really doesn't want to.

maybe as a compromise, he can take some pics with you beforehand in a tux, and then change into a tan suit for the actual wedding. it takes men like 39 seconds to change outfits, so it wouldn't hurt your timeline.

i'd tell him straight out. my dad wouldn't be offended, but that's my dad!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
