I am also wearing an ivory dress. It is a very light ivory.  I don’t know how dark yours is going to be.  But we are still having them wear white shirts.  I’m going to follow this thread though in case someone has some experience….

I’m also wearing an ivory dress, and all the men are weearing white shirts.  Ivory dresses are classic and most people look better in them, just like a black and white tux is classic.  I think it is great. 

What I’m doing is having my fiance wear a white shirt, ivory vest, and ivory tie, mostly just because he wants to go with me but it also combines both colors successfully into the wedding. 

There are tons of pictures of this on this site.  I think it looks great, unless the ivory is super yellowy and dark (which few dresses are)

Ivory dresses go great with a white shirt. It looks awesome in photographs and ivory is much more flattering IMHO.

@mexlover:  Trust me, either choice will look great! Choose the one you like the best.

We are just having the guys wear ivory shirts to match my dress. Once it’s all put together you cannot tell their shirts aren’t “white”, but just like my dress when you hold it up to true white you can tell but this way we all match. 🙂

We are renting tuxedos from Men’s Wearhouse and this was their reccomendation.
