My husband wore a uniform for the ceremony/photos and changed to a tux for the reception.  Black tux, ivory vest, white shirt.  Here’s us standing side by side for comparison sake.

Yeah, you can get ivory shirts and vests.

Why not also go for a grey suit? This is a softer colour and (IMHO) will go better with the softer ivory colour.

Or he could even go for a taupe suit, like here:

Mine was ivory and my husband (whee!) wore a shirt that wasn’t bright bright white, it was more of a soft white.

this is a picture of a friend of a friend. she is wearing an ivory, almost champagne dress and her husband wore a stark white shirt. i think it looks fine. you can also have him wear an ivory shirt, or mix and match white and ivory as PP have posted.

sorry for the huge pic, WB wouldn’t let me resize it. 

here is her photog’s blog if you want to see more pics…

The rule is if you wear ivory then your groom and his groomsmen must wear ivory as well or your dress will look dirty against the white

Ivory will not look “dirty” near white shirts, especially not with with a gold overlay. Ivory shirts are nice, though, but not if the guys are renting from Men’s Wearhouse and intend to get ivory shirts that way. It’s an option, they just look and feel horrible! If they all buy shirts, then no prob. Still, white looks fine. I also loooove men in pastel shirts at weddings.

The overlay of my dress was ivory, while the layer underneath was a blush-champagne color. My husband wore a charcoal suit with a lighter grey button-down shirt and solid burgundy satin tie. I pulled in the burgundy with my shoes, and he had an ivory rose boutoniere.

 

Here are some photos…

Someone on my facebook wore a really lovely ivory/gold gown… and her husband wore a BRIGHT WHITE SUIT.  That was BAD and looked atrocious in photos.  Everybody ever: don’t do that!  However, if it’s just a white shirt (especially against a grey suit — i love grey suits!) i think you’re fine.

I have an ivory dress and I’m dressing my husband in all black, so.. black is always a cheap fix!

I’m wearing ivory, and my fi will be wearing a black tux – i’m entertaining the idea of an ivory shirt with a fuschia tie [black ivory & hints of fuschia are our wedding colors]
