    I think I’ll be putting the men in a slightly off-white color. I don’t mind ‘white-ish’, I just don’t want stark-white, but they are wearing black so I guess we’ll wait and see how it all looks put together. Ultimately it’s up to Fiance (yes, I’m allowing him SOME choice in the matter). 😉

    I’ve asked my FH to wear an ivory shirt (we’re still debating over ivory tie-and-ivory shirt); my dress is ivory lace.

    Ivory! It will make your dress look dingy if they wear white! i didn’t realize my dress was ivory until i had chosen it and was ordering it… i thought the sample i’d adored was white, well it wasn’t it was ivory but i loved it so much i just decided to order it in that color. it really wasn’t difficult to get ivory shirts either…. we used men’s warehouse and they were wonderful!

    Ivory. If someone else is wearing white, the ivory will look dirty 🙁

    Our groomsmen are wearing ivory shirts. I didn’t think it made sense for them to be whiter than I am, and I am wearing ivory.

    You could also have them wear colored shirts? My Fiance is wearing a red shirt.

    I think it depends upon “how” ivory your dress is. Mine is so light that a white shirt won’t make much of a different. Plus, I’ve noticed that men’s ivory is much darker than normal…darker than my dress. My fiance also doesn’t want to make the GMs spend money on a new shirt in this economy when they have a perfectly good on in their closets, which I completely agree with. So, either way, you’ll be fine!

    I wore an ivory dress, groom and groomsmen wore white shirts, and Darling Husband wore an ivory tie. I thought we looked fine!

    When I looked at the ivory at men’s wearhouse, it was a lot more yellow-ivory than my dress… so we just went with white.

    I think it depends where you’re getting your shirts from.  We ordered ours through a boutique store and the ivory of the shirts matched the ivory of my dress very closely.  I also saw the ivory shirts at MW and did not like them at all.  There are lots of ivory shirts out there though so shop around a bit and you’ll find something that looks good!

    Linguo42’s picture looks great! My dress is also ivory and my fiancé was talking about wearing a champagne tue so I agree this is the way to go!
