Hello Bees! If your groom decided to wear a white/ivory tuxedo jacket, could you please post some photos from your big day?
Mr.Groom-to-be would really like to change into one for the reception, but I am worried about the color clashing with my ivory dress. It would also be great to see photos of your entire bridal party for some groomsmen outfit inspiration!

My husband wore a regular black tux and then changed into an ivory dinner jacket for the reception. He made the change just before our official ‘introduction’. It was a huge hit! And we still have our nice formal pictures 🙂

CityBearBride: Yes! This is exactly what we were thinking. Would love to see photos if you are willing to share them!
nygirla: Thank you so much! Beautiful couple. I’m assuming your dress is white and not ivory? Did you compare his tuxedo jacket to your dress before purchasing/renting?

baybee23: My husband had his tux and jacket custom made. According to the tailors, it’s traditional to do an ivory dinner jacket. We did not match his jacket to my dress. His shirt was white, my dress was off-white, and his jacket was ivory. I think it all ‘went’ together nicely, but nothing was matchy-matchy.
All the groomsmen. They all wore black tuxes. My husband had a different color pocket square (burgundy), the groomsmen had white.
Bridal party (bridesmaids were in black):
Our ‘grand entrance’. Everyone loved the fact that he had a reception outfit 🙂

baybee23: Thank you. No, my dress was actually ivory but you can’t really tell from the pictures. Could be the lighting. The difference was not so noticeable that it made a big difference. I have an ivory veil with ivory dress and his jacket and shirt were all white.

Ooh my parents did this! I’ll see if I can find a photo.
My mom calls what she had “a snowball wedding,” where everyone in the bridal party wore white. Her maids, her parents, my dad’s parents, and my dad 😛 Pictures were so cute, I think.
