My Darling Husband wore a white shirt and it wasn’t noticeable. Ivory in men’s shirts is usually more yellow than bridal “ivory” so its not likely it’ll match any closer (might be worse actually).

Fi is wearing Ivory. But we are doing everything with Ivory accent, no white. So any white would really stand out. I think it also depends on just how Ivory your dress is.

My husband wore white too and we had white linens.  Here’s us sitting at the table so you can see my dress, the linens, and his shirt.  I thought it looked fine.

My dress is ivory, his shirt will be white. I took a swatch of my dress fabric to the tux store, held it up next to the shirt in question, and it looked fine.

I wore ivory and my Darling Husband wore white. It looked fine. I didn’t like how the ivory shirt looked under the black tux.

I had an diamond white (ivory) dress and I’m pretty sure my Fiance wore a stark white shirt. Nobody cared, nobody noticed 🙂

I am wearing ivory – he is wearing ivory or purple- we haven’t decided yet.  I think whatever you choose will be fine 🙂

My dress was “candlelight” (Light ivory) and husband wore a white shirt. I debated on this since I’d heard white dress= white shirt, ivory dress= ivory shirt. He tried the ivory shirt and they looked terrible. My husband was NOT excited about ivory shirts since he said they looked dingy but wanted to do what I wanted. In the end I went with white shirts and they looked great. In person & in pics.

I had an ivory dress and mister had a white shirt and it was fine.  Nobody notices that stuff.

They are both neutrals, so no one should notice. I can never even tell the difference between all the ‘whites.’
