So I bought my dress and decided to go with ivory for the color as I am very pale and white just looked ghastly on me. 🙁 The ivory was a much better fit. The problem is, my fiance’s brother (who is the best man and flying in from overseas) convinced and bought my fiance a white linen suit to wear. They both are going to wear white linen. My gown is an ivory chiffon. I held the two side by side last night and you can defiantly tell the difference. I just need to know if this is okay, the white suit/ivory gown trend. I don’t see many pictures on line when I try to google so I’m kinda freaking out. Has anyone else done this? How did the pictures turn out? Thanks!

How do they look to you? If you’re unhappy with the contrast, you need to speak up now.
How does your FI look in white? I know typically women care more than men about looking washed out by a certain color, but you may be able to appeal to his vanity.
Also, linen is a natural fabric and will take dye. Maybe you can dye the suits to match/complement the ivory of your gown without too much difficulty. Linen can be dyed in a washing machine – you can find instructions and dye recommendations on Google.

To me it looks okay. He looks really good in white. Whereas my skintone looks bad in white, his skintone looks better in white than ivory. LOL I’m just worried that my dress would come off as “dingy” or faded next to his suit and I can’t seem to find any pictures of the two combos online to help soothe the panic. He is a dork who has been all “my white wedding!” when he tried on his suit so I can’t ask him to dye it, he likes it so. 🙂 I guess I just have to suck it up, I was just hoping others have been in the same boat and it turned out okay for them. Just momentary panic on my part I guess. :/

It doesn’t sound like it would look great together…but then again, I’d have to see a picture. If you don’t care that it’s noticeable, then go for it! Otherwise do some convincing – maybe he could switch to a tan or khaki suit? 🙂

I think white and ivory clash terribly. But i’m a little biased as I’m in the middle of a dress disaster where i ordered an Ivory dress and they sewed on bright white applique. (sadface!)
I would photograph them side by side and see how it looks. If you don’t like it, you may have to talk to FI.
