I think of the term: "white dinner jacket." So I think the jacket is a go. You might want to do black pants if you care about being proper. It’s just a matter if you care or not. It’s your wedding, and if that excites you, do it. But I often like the challenge of fitting within etiquette, so I understand your dilema.

How formal is your wedding? That would make a difference.

Yeah — it just matters if you care about being "proper" or not. If you’re going with ivory not because of etiquette but because you want your groom, like you, to be in a special color, then go for it and just explain that to people. I just wouldn’t make the groomsmen match.

It’s all about what you want, but if you’re going with ettiquette, you could get away with the ivory jacket.

White/Ivory is fine, but apparently you cannot do it in the fall/winter. I love the look. Will the waiters be wearing white dinner jackets though …. that’s something to consider! I remember when fiance thought about the white tux and ditched it b/c the season … and everyone said that he would look like a waiter. Lol.
