what should my dad wear?

Recommended Posts

so i finally found a place that carries charcoal grey tuxes. i had a hard time believe it or not trying to find them. it's a place in philly called gallelli formal wear- they were GREAT!!!!!!!!

 

anyway, what is your opinion on this-

 

fi and ring bearer are wearing charcoal grey tux, ivory shirt, tie and vest. the 3 groomsmen will wear the charcoal grey tux, ivory shirt, with a grey & blk vest and blk tie.i was going to have my dad wear the same as the groomsmen...but the shop said normally the father of the bride wears a blk tux, not the same as the bridal party, ? obviously it's up to me but they just mentioned that. what do you guys think? i dont really have a preference at this point but am trying to get diff opinions.

 

thanks!

But what if the wedding party was wearing a black tux, then he would be wearing the same right? If it was me I'd have him wear the grey tux so it fits in...if he's the only one in black that might look kinda weird. Or what if he just wears a suit instead of a tux?

i was wondering that too, him wearing a suit but i kinda think i want him in a tux. im trying to picture it in my head, with him in blk, it might look funny...hmmmmm

I would go with your original plan of having him match the others. Thinking of pictures, would it look out of place to have him in black?

i would put him in the same tux the guys are wearing, but different vest and tie, or just a gray suit.

I would do them all the same too, maybe change the color vest or something if you want him to look a little different.

I think either black or grey is fine. He should dress around your mom's dress. Isn't that the way it usually is? But I am not about it being all matchy matchy. But he hsould definately compliment (if not match) your mom. You could probably even have him get a grey tux, but a different one, so that he matches, but doesnt' blend.

 

I am anti-black clothing, so I think grey is better. Plus, I saw your mom's dress and I think it would look really nice witha dark grey tux on Chuck.

it's funny because my mom just asked me what the guys are wearing and if i wanted my dad to match them ... i thought it was the strangest thing. why would my dad match the groomsmen if my mom doesn't match the bridesmaids? i agree with the previous poster, just make sure he doesn't clash with what your mom is wearing, since they will probably be in several photos together! :)

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
