I have an ivory dress. Our thought was that my fiance and my son (who is giving me away) will wear ivory shirts (I found ones that are the same color as my dress) and the groomsmen will wear white shirts. My fiance is wearing a black tux he owns and our groomsmen and my son are wearing grey pinstripe suits. Is this too many colors? The men in suits aren’t planning to wear vests. The groomsmen have purple ties to match the bridesmaid’s dresses. What color ties do my son and fiance wear and does my fiance need a vest?

I’m also wearing an ivory dress & was really worried about this, too…
I don’t think it sounds like you have too many colors at all! If your Fiance is wearing a black tux/ivory shirt and your son is in grey/ivory, your men are in grey/white/purple, it sounds like your son & Fiance should wear purple, too. Or, you could always try to find a tie with a striped pattern or a subtle pattern that includes all of, or some of, the colors you’re using.
My Fiance knows nothing about my dress, including color but my maids (and Men’s Wearhouse) all said ivory and white would look fine together, so the groomsmen are all in black tuxes with black vests and striped black on black ties. Fiance is wearing black tux with grey vest and grey on grey striped tie; all in white shirts and purple pocket squares.
Good luck! Whatever you choose, it will be beautiful because it’s yours!

When I was considering an ivory dress, the woman at the bridal salon suggested we keep the groom and the groomsmen in white shirts but place the groom in an ivory tie and vest with the other men in a different colored tie and vest.
I am sure whatever you chose will be great!

I think it depends on your dress. Mine is ivory but has a lot of sparkle to it, which made ivory shirts look a little dingy in comparison. Bring a could of shirts home to look at next to your dress. You can always return the shirt you dont’ want 🙂
