    Hey all BDW members!! Please help!! I need some ideas as to what my dad shuold wear for our wedding?? My fiance hasn't picked out his outfit yet either, but has told me that he is not doing the formal suit and tie thing, probably an ivory colored shirt to match my dress.. or one of our colors? and black or khaki colored pants... what on earth should my dad wear then?? He keeps asking me and I really can't tell him anything until my fiance picks something!! Do any of you have ideas or pics of your dad's you could share and save me from my dilema Any help would be much appreciated!!!!

    Thanks all!!!

      is your ceremony on the beach? If so I'd say khaki pants and a button down white shirt - either short or long sleeve.

        And my dad is wearing this shirt and khaki pants.

        His shirt kinda coordinates with the groomsmen shirts but not too matchy matchy..

        here are the GM shirts ( there is embroidery on the side panels)

        Hope that helps a little!

          I think there are lots of unformal grooms on bdw!! I think, however, that he should be wearing a contrasting color to your dress, maybe white, or one of your wedding colors? As far as the father, if the groom is going unformal, so should he! I think it may look off if he's wearing a suit, and the groom isn't, but then again, it's whatever everyone feels most comfortable in! :) Also, khaki goes great against the color of sand versus something too dark!

            Both my dad and fiance are wearing casual linen suits without ties. My fiance's is a shade of ivory and my dad's is a light tan.

                I got mine at Kohls and they are actually on clearance right now there ( I wish I would have gotten them for that price)
