Unfortunately, the father of the groom
often gets largely overlooked at a
wedding. He walks in behind his wife
and takes his seat and that is largely
it. One way to help the father stand
out is for him to wear a tuxedo, like
the father of the bride, though he
doesn't have to. It is also appropriate
for the grandfathers to wear tuxedos if
they choose to do so, but again they
don't have to, though they should wear
In your case, if the
step-father wears a tuxedo and your
husband doesn't, the step-father may be
mistaken for the groom's father.
Therefore, it would be a good idea for
your husband to also rent a tux. He
should wear one similar to that to be
worn by the bride's father.
Best wishes to you.
