I think it will be just fine. I saw wedding photos where the bride wore ivory and the groom wore his white dress uniform. You could tell the color was different, but it didn’t seem to clash at all.

I think it will be fine too.  I’ve seen a lot of weddings where the groom wears white (when the bride wears ivory.)  Although I haven’t seen a Filipino wedding.  Do you have pictures.  Can you find pictures?

I dont think it will be an issue really, when you think about it – how many men wear ivory shirts if the bride is wearing ivory? Can you recall? bet not!

I think it will look normal, and fine! no issues!

I think it will be fine.  I was slightly bothered that the vests that my husband and his groomsmen had were ivory on the front and shiny bright white on the back but I a probably the only one who noticed…

I really don’t think it will be a huge deal. I think it will work out fine.

I hate to be the only one with a different opinion, but I wonder if there’s a different color shirt that your goom could wear besides white. In my opinion, you run the risk of your dress appearing dirty next to his crisp, white shirt. I personally wouldn’t like the look.

It’s not uncommon for grooms to wear ivory, as mine will wear ivory shirt, vest and tie to match my dress. There was thought of the groomsmen wearing white shirts because their ties would be colored, but Fiance and the consultants at the shop thought his would appear dirty next to white shirts. So I think the same thing applies with a bride and groom standing next to each other.

Sorry – just my opinion.

I think people know that wedding dresses are often ivory. It won’t look dirty – it will look ivory! At least that’s what I am telling myself 🙂 I understand your concern since he won’t be wearing a suit jacket, but I honestly think it will be fine! If it does really bother you, though, could you not find these style shirts in ivory or an off-white?
