Wedding days are once-in-a-lifetime experiences, and as such, the bride and groom, bridal party, and immediate families spend a lot of time deciding on what to wear to the big event. Special wedding garments like a white wedding gown and veil or a tuxedo are usually worn by the bride and groom, but what should the dads wear? Dads deserve to wear something special, too.
There seems to be differing opinions when it comes to what dads should wear to their children’s weddings but the one rule that seems to be universally agreed upon is that the fathers, stepfathers, and even grandfathers of the bride and groom, should dress to match the formality of the event. For example, for an evening formal or semi-formal wedding where the groomsmen are wearing tuxedos, the dads should wear tuxedos. For a morning wedding where the groom and groomsmen are wearing a morning suit, the fathers should wear a morning suit. If the groomsmen are wearing dark suits, then the dads should wear the same. Dads are such a special part of the couple’s lives they should be dressed equally as nice as the rest of the bridal party.
