Wedding Dressing Mom & Dad: What Does the Father of the Groom Wear to the Wedding?

Q:

Should the father of the groom wear a tux? If so, should the groom decide what his dad wears?

A:

Dads have wedding dressing pretty easy. If the groom and groomsmen wear tuxedos, the dads should too -- especially if guests are required to dress up. Even if the guys aren't going black tie, dads can feel free to don tuxes for the wedding day. That said, formal suits in appropriate colors (black, navy, charcoal for evening or winter; navy, brown, beige for summer or daytime) are great. However, fathers' tuxes should be in the same style as the groom's. Your formalwear store can help you pick out the perfect attire.

Can I Wear A Suit While She Wears A Dress?

My partner would never consider getting married wearing anything less formal than a white ball gown with a veil and high heels. I, on the other hand, am not quite as outwardly feminine. It's not that I don't ever wear dresses; it's just that I'm most comfortable in a nice shirt and pants. Should I wear a dress for my wedding to match my partner or wear a suit instead?
