Definitely white shirts with a tux.  Your dress will NOT look dirty next to him in his tux, especially with the pearl rose underlay.  It will be beautiful together.

FutureMrsPaton:  The men should wear white shirts. It’s the proper thing with a tuxedo. Colored shirts are only worn by those in the entertainment industry.

The men’s white shirt will not  make your dress look dingy. That is a myth perpetuated by salespeople at Men’s Wearhouse.

You’ll never get a tuxedo shirt to perfectly match the color of your gown. My daughter wore ivory, so had it in mind to have the men wear ivory shirts. She compared them with white, at Men’s Wharehouse, and thought the ivory shirt looked dingy, so they chose white. Unless the men have their jackets off, so little of the shirt shows, anyway.
