My FI will love to go with an all white tuxedo for our wedding, since my dress is Ivory, it would have to be an Ivory tuxedo, and I love the idea of seeing him in all Ivory and for him to stand out the other male guests that will be wearing black. But my mom says the etiquette rules are white only for morning events, gray for the afternoon and blue and black for the evening.
Our ceremony will begin at 5:00 and reception at 6:00. Would it be appropriate for him to wear an Ivory tux, tie, shirt, vest AND shoes?

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.
