- Wedding: May 2012
For our wedding in May I will be wearing an Ivory dress (watters) and have been driving myself insane trying to figure out if the groom & groomsmen (and ring bearer, and flower girl…) should be in white or ivory. For simplicity’s sake, I’ve at least told the ringbearer and flower girl to just go with white… they’ll match and life is much easier (couldn’t for the life of me find an ivory shirt for toddler boys that wasn’t too yellow). If they make the rest of us look “dirty”, so be it…
Now, the question is… my dress is clearly not white-white. I would like to have my fiance in an ivory/ecru/off-white that matches and he agrees, but he doesn’t want to make the groomsmen spend a lot on new shirts when they already have white ones. Would it look weird if Fiance and I are in ivory/off-white and match, and then the rest of the bridal party is in white?

What do you all think?? Any help would be great since I’ve been pulling my hair out over this for the last 2 months… crazy, right?! Thanks, hive!!
