A wedding day is a time for love, laughter, and celebration. The bride and groom are declaring their eternal love for one another in front of family, friends, and even co-workers. Weddings take a lot of time to plan completely, and every bride wants her wedding day to go off without a hitch!
A lot of stress is put on the wedding party when it comes to what they need to wear. The bride is the main focal point and will be typically dressed to the nines as she enjoys one of the most important days of her life. Many brides have been looking for their dress since they were young children-it’s that important to them! There is also the fact of putting together the dresses that the bridesmaids will wear on this special day. Everyone is focused on looking their very best!
While the attire for a wedding is a hot topic, not a lot of people think about what the father of the bride or groom will be wearing. However, it is a topic that deserves recognition. After all, many fathers walk their daughter down the aisle to the love of her life. He may be giving a toast in front of everyone. Some fathers are the life of the party, coming in a close second to the bride and groom. It’s only fair that they have a good look while they are going about their duties!
Because of the above reasons, many dads should ask for help when they have to plan an outfit. What should they consider when a wedding is near?
Luckily, the father of the bride and groom will be able to look at the rest of the wedding party when they have to figure out what to wear. Experts state that their outfits should generally look similar to what the groom and the groomsmen are wearing. This doesn’t mean that they should look exactly the same. Instead, an outfit should have the same tone, color, and formality as the groom and groomsmen.
Anyone planning a wedding should decide on the outfits as soon as possible. Only after the dress code has been finalized for the groom and his groomsmen should the father of the groom or bride be told of the decision. From there, they can use their own ideas to pick a style that compliments the outfits of everyone else.
Accessories are an important topic when it comes to the style of dress everyone wears. The father of the groom and bride should in no way match the accessories the groomsmen plan to wear. What they can do is to wear a bow tie, tie, or pocket square that compliments what the groomsmen are planning to wear. Also, the father may want to coordinate what he is wearing with his wife. He can choose to coordinate with the color of her dress, her shoes, or even her own accessories. Having everyone in the same color will look great when it comes to pictures! You’ll be able to tell who is with who if the father of the groom or bride matches how their wife is dressed.
When it comes to the belt and shoes, the father of the bride is not required to match what the groomsmen are wearing. However, many brides would like for the fathers to wear the same color belt and shoes as the groomsmen, if not the same style.
Everyone needs to be on board when it comes to dressing their best for a wedding. Fathers and mothers of the bride and groom should always speak to their children about what they should wear to the wedding to avoid any unnecessary issues on the big day. When everyone knows what they should and shouldn’t wear months away from the wedding it gives them time to put together the best outfit that will make everyone happy.
