I think you look beautiful in your dress!! I’ve heard the complaints that if we wear ivory the groom needs to because it will make our dress look dirty but I disagree, ivory dresses dont look dirty next to diamond white dresses in the stores and it makes for a nice contrast. Does the bridal store you bought your dress at have tuxedo rentals? Can you bring a jacket over and compare? And at least with different shades when you are standing next to each other you arent going to blend in, you’ll both stand out nicely. Its your wedding, make sure you do what you think is best and dont let anyone tell you otherwise.

I don’t think you have anything to worry about. The difference between ivory and white is barely noticeable, in my opinion. You certainly won’t look dirty next to a white jacket. Btw, you look GORGEOUS in that dress!

If your groom has not bought his jacket, then I really doubt he would care about the difference between off white and brilliant white. In my experience men are just not that fussed about stuff like that. If he has bought it, can you check how they look together by bringing the jacket to the bridal store? It would probably set your mind at ease.

I was just in a wedding where the bride & groom did just what you’re describing.  Her dress was ivory (although you couldn’t tell unless it was next to something white) and the groom wore a white jacket.  You can’t tell in pictures unless you’re looking for it specifically (and even then it’s barely noticeable).  The other thing that really worked for her and looks like it will for you as well is that her skirt was tulle so you weren’t looking at like fabrics.  I think it’ll look great day of!
