It’s really a matter of preference.  I’m having a black and ivory wedding.  I changed from white to ivory when I picked an ivory dress. 

My maids are in black dresses, guys in black with black vests and ties.  I made them get ivory shirts too to make everything cohesive.  I distinguished my fiance by having him in a solid black vest and tie and the guys in patterned black vests and ties. 

You can have him stand out more if you want, but its up to you.  Everyone will know he’s the groom regardless of what he’s wearing!

I’m like Reese.  Black, white and green wedding here, and I have a slightly ivory dress.  Boys are wearing white shirts, table linens will be white, cake white, I’ll be the only ivory thing.. but I don’t think you will see the distinction.  If my bridesmaids were wearing white dresses I think you could tell, but with them wearing black, I think it will be almost unnoticeable.

@Ella- yeah I don’t think that anyone will notice that your aren’t glowing white. You’ll be glowing enough anyway! 🙂

Oh I’ll be glowing white, but that will be my SKIN! Ha.. The ivory color just was so much more flattering to my pale skin!  The white didn’t work for me.  I had a moment where I thought about changing it to a ivory, black and green wedding, but it wouldn’t have worked with the small silver accents – I would have had to change that to gold, and I didnt’ love that…
