Stylish Wedding Suits Perfect for Dad

Looking for the perfect wedding day ensemble for dad? Check out these suits for every kind of nuptial.

Deciding exactly which suit your dad should wear to your wedding can be difficult, since there are a surprising number of suit options out there. It’s a good idea to keep this rule of thumb in mind: If he looks like he’s headed to the office, he’s doing it wrong. While you don’t have to opt for a top hat and tails, your dad’s look should feel extra-polished for your wedding day.
Our advice? Let the formality and location of your wedding dictate your dad’s attire. For a formal wedding, opt for a classic black tux. If your wedding is semi-formal or casual there’s more room for experimentation. Consider suits in navy or gray, and don’t be afraid to let him mix it up with a lighter linen or seersucker suit for a garden or beach wedding. If your dad is a “cool dad” (read: more fashion-forward than your average Joe) consider bolder accessories like a printed pocket square or tie to round out a less formal look. As far as footwear is concerned, lace ups and oxfords will give his look a sophisticated finishing touch—especially after a little polish.
