I think that the color of your wedding is not really an issue, I´m thinking that even when the difference will be seen, is supposed to. I mean in most wedding the bride wears white and the bp other color, I don´t think it´ll be that bad. However if you´re corcern about it ask the manufacturer where you can find the ivory one, if this is the dress you totally love, you should go for it! no matter the color, I guess you will regret more the fact that you don´t use the dress of your dreams more than the fact that your dress doesn´t match your father, brother, son and groomsmen.

Hope it help!

I think it will look fine.

You don’t want to look too matchy-matchy.  So if the colors are little off it will be more aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

I think this is a minor issue the other way around.  I’m wearing “diamond white”, and was advised to put the groom/groomsmen in ivory shirts so my dress doesn’t look “dingy”.

But, I think if the bride looks whiter than her surroundings, that will be just fine 🙂

SapphireSun summed it up beautifully:

Alright…..

I work at a tuxedo store, so I hope this helps. If your dress is in fact going to be white, I would HIGHLY recommend going with white for the guys versus ivory. On the plus side, becuase both white and ivory are basic colors, your formalwear store will most likely have the exact same styles in white. Simple switches like ivory to white are very easy to make, and usually require only a phone call.

Also, with how popular brown tuxedos have become lately, I have seen several wedding wearing both brown/ivory and brown/white, and I can professionally assure they look great either way!

If you have any questions just PM me.

Good luck!

I agree with @krzaun – I think it would be really easy to switch in white garments for ivory ones.  Then you won’t feel as out of place and it wil still go with your color scheme.
