Father of Bride/Groom attire

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. So I am getting married on the beach in Punta Cana in January, and the dress code is "beach dressy" if you will. Basically I am wearing a traditional (although lightweight) wedding gown, my groom is wearing a khaki suit and ivory shirt (no tie). My bridesmaids are wearing a basic blue cotton sundress from J-Crew, and the groomsmen are wearing ivory short sleeve linen shirts and khakis.

 

My question is: I have found this shirt for my father and future father in law to wear.

 

Tommy Bahama 'Zen Garden' Linen Campshirt

 

It is an ivory color, but brings in the blue of the girls as well. My mom is afraid that my dad's shirt will distract from me (heaven forbid) as he walks me down the aisle, and that I will regret it in pictures later. I'd love everyone's thoughts on if this shirt will look overly busy next to me, and if so, what should he wear? I don't want him in plain ivory, as I think that is just too much ivory and khaki. Thanks so much for your help!

I think its a great shirt for Dad.

 

Are you having any blue accents with your dress or flowers? If so, I think it will complement it even more, but regardless, I think that is a perfect, understated, classy shirt for your Dad to wear while arm in arm with you down the aisle!

Thanks everyone. For some reason this is a sticking point, but I still really like the shirts. THere is just that lingering doubt that didn't use to be there until my mom brought it up.

i know that feeling! whenever my mom brings up an objection, it totally stresses me out and makes me doubt my choices.

 

i, too, like the blue accent and agree with the other ladies that it wouldn't distract from your dress. but just in case you need another option, here is the shirt i picked for my dad to wear...white with khaki details...
