Your ivory dress will look beautiful with the mens’ white shirts. they will NOT make your dress look dingy, if that is your fear. Do not put the men in ivory shirts. Most often the only ivory available is way too yellow.

The men can wear black or charcoal. The color of their suits or tuxes have littke to do with the color of the BM’s dresses, except for maybe brown suits.

The girls can wear nude shoes. They need not match the mens’ suits.

@FutureMrsShindiggity:  They can get ivory shirts, my guys did.  We did our tuxes at Men’s Warehouse.  My girls are in Navy too, and I just didn’t like black tuxes, so we did Gray, they look super sharp, here is my inspiration…I also let the girls wear whatever shoes they want. Don’t stress that, do you remember what the BM’s shoes looked like at  the last wedding you went to?  Most of them opted for silver

@FutureMrsShindiggity:  The shirts are barely ivory, they’re not as dark as my dress but they’ll look good. Not dingy or anything! We have no gray anywhere else in our wedding either, but it’s a neutral color, and I think it looks soooo much better than navy next to black. Don’t stress too much, what does your FI think?

this is way too crazy! My wedding colors are “royple” (navy blue), fuschia, blush and gold…some hints of gray. I had the same dillema. The groomsmen didnt want tan AT ALL. I think black is too formal these days unless your having a very formal affair. I went with a medium gray for the suits and it looks awesome with the navy and pink flowers. I am also confused on dress shirts. My dress is Ivory as well but I don’t know how I feel about Ivory shirts. they just look dirty! I am prob gonna go with a dusty blue shirt to avoid this conflict but I don’t think anyone would notice the white compared to your ivory dress…esp if you are going full suit and not just the vest. good luck!
