Post Your Father of the Bride attire

Recommended Posts

My dad keeps asking me what he should wear. It's a beach ceremony. I'm going to wear a gown (obviously), FI is wearing a tan suit, best man will wear khakis and a white shirt, and my mom is planning on a semi-formal/cocktail dress. My dad will walk me down the aisle so I want him to be a little formal, but not be sweating in a suit.

 

What are your dad's wearing?

My dad is wearing a super light, tan colour suit, no tie. He can take the jacket off after the ceremony. He keeps saying: "Well I'm the 2nd most important man that day, so I better look good!" hehehe...

 

 

I'll be sweating my a$$ off for a few hours, he can too wink.gif

my dad is doing a tan pants and short-sleeved button down shirt. Not sure on the color yet, since our groomsmen might be wearing a light blue dress shirt we don't want my Dad to match them. But thats the basic framework for ours anyway :) My Dad is super casual, so the idea of a full suit is completely NOT his forte! Haha

HA, sounds like my dad! I was SHOCKED when he said he wanted to wear a suit.

And then, my dad's weird humor came out when he said: Just make sure I get a suit you can bury me in!

Ugh...dad!!! doh.gif NOT funny!

Tonir, where are you getting married?

I had really wanted early April (our anniversary), but since it's Easter the prices are super high and my sister (MOH) will be studying for final exams.

Amazingly enough, my Dad went out shopping all by himself and picked up this shirt:

It really looks good on him....he is wearing a pair of light beige linen pants. I'm so proud that my Daddy did it all by himself and he is gonna look GREAT!

Well...I left my dad to his own shopping (we're not really that close!) and this is what he came up with...

He actually bought the shirt down there! And I don't think it looks that bad with my color scheme!!!

Amy haha your dad sounds EXACTLY like my dad. He would totally make some inappropriate death joke. I'm getting married in St. Thomas on April 27. We chose the end of April because it's the beginning of the off-season so the guests (and us) are getting much better rates.

 

So I think maybe I should just ask my dad what he WANTS to wear right? haha instead of dictating everything? Thanks for the advice!
