I have an ivory dress, it is pretty light, but it’s definitely not white. I always figured that my fiance would just get an ivory colored shirt when he ordered his tux. However, the “ivory” of men’s tux’s is more like a cream color. The woman at the store said it was a toss up, some people did ivory, some did white.
Did anyone else have this issue, which did you choose?

My DH wore a off-cream shirt that didn’t match my dress. It didn’t matter and doesn’t look like it showed in pictures. I wouldn’t be that worried unless it’s an obvious change.

I didn’t really think about this LOL My FI and his groomsmen have white shirts and the classic black bow tie and my dress is ivory. If you think the ivory shirt is too creamy looking I would just go with white.

I’m wearing an ivory dress and the guys are wearing white. I agree the men’s ivory shirts look really yellowish.

oh we worried and researched over this topic much. The answer is don’t worry about getting ivory! Honestly the white is perfectly fine and nobody will ever be able to tell the difference. I’ve looked through our photos and it was def. not an issue!

My husband wore an Ivory shirt and Ivory Vest and Tie, honestly I dont think it looked weird at all in pictures or was noticable at all.

I wore an ivory dress and DH wore an ivory shirt/vest/tie. Personally, I liked the way they looked together.

My dress is diamond white, but when we held the fabric sample up to the men’s shirt options, it was closer to ivory. So, we went with the ivory shirt and vest option. That way they look close in color (and my dress doesn’t look dingy).

My dress is also ivory, and we just ordered the tuxes over the weekend. The consultant at the tuxedo shop was adamant that the guys all get ivory shirts so that’s what we did.

I have an Ivory dress and the guy at the tux shop said it was ok to wear white shirts with the traditional tuxes we picked. I had him put the suit together with the ivory anyway and hated the way it looked. He put it back together with the white and we held it up with my dress and it looked perfect (I had just picked up the dress from the seamstress).

My dress is ivory but I didnt want the guys wearing ivory shirts, so they are all wearing white. Plus, with the suit coat and vest with tie its not much of the shirt even showing. I didnt care for the ivory shirts, just looked weird and no shades matched perfectly.
