Should grandfathers wear tuxedos if they are not part of the bridal party?

Should grandfathers wear tuxedos or suits? They are not part of the bridal party.


Dear Serpy:

They can wear suits. But if they are going to be in wedding photos, it would be nice if their attire complements the wedding party.

I agree that they should dress up a bit. They really shouldn’t be dressed as one of the groomsmen, but dressed slightly more formal than the guests.
