    It will probably be okay, but it will make your dress look clearly ivory. As long as you are fine with that, I don’t think there is a problem. If he does switch to black, if he’s wearing a white shirt with no vest, he can totally still wear those shoes.

    He wanted the James Bond look?


    If your are hoping to match, the shades will be way off.

    If he is willing to switch to black for you let him do it. I am sure you will find away to make it up to him.

    Love your dress.

    I think your dress looks beautiful!

    I think he should wear a black jacket and maybe a white vest and white shirt? 

    Otherwise, if you’re set on getting a new dress, just make sure to get it in white! 

    Good luck!

    @actime:  Ivory looks best on most brides and I’m sure your Fiance wants you to love your dress more than he cares what color his jacket is. I think your dress is gorgeous. If you have legit dress regret, that’s one thing, but don’t let this jacket be the reason that you regret your dress. It will be very hard to find and get and fit a dress anywhere near as awesome as yours in only 3 months. Has your dress come in yet? Many brides feel dress regret when they haven’t had it on in a while, but when the go to pick it up and put it on or when they have it fitted, they realize why those chose it to begin with.

    What about an ivory jacket for him? Would it be possible to match your dress’s fabric and color to a jacket?

    At My cousin’s wedding, she had a white dress, and her groom wore a full ivory suit. It wasnt my thing, but it wasn’t awful…? Just my honest opinion though!

    There’s definitely going to be a distinction when you stand next to each other, but I don’t necessarily think it will look “bad”.  Your gown is gorgeous and so is the color; his tux is dashing in that vibrant white.  Together they may not be super matchy in color, but only you can decide how much that will bother you (if even).

    I also think your ivory dress may look even brighter than it appears in the photo when it’s outdoors..!  Did you try seeing how it looks outside?  

    I personally think you’d still make a stunning duo.!  Just whatever you do, don’t make him wear an ivory tux!  I saw pics of those and they’re not…. very handsome. 🙂

    You can definitely get an ivory tux jacket for him (ive actually never seen a diamond white dinner jacket). Would he be okay with switching to ivory?

    Meh – I doubt I would even notice!  Your photographer can do some colour touching if you hate how it turns out.

    I would ask him to wear black. My dress is ivory too, and I feel like it would look dingy next to a white jacket.
