I don’t have pics nor am I a military wife (my brother is i nthe USMC), but I do know what the uniforms look like. And when we were picking out shirt colors my husband told the groomsen they could pick white or ivory or cream because “white is white.” SMH…

My friend is wearing a gold/ivory dress and her FH is wearing a white shirt and it makes her dress look very dull.

If he wears the white pants, your dress will more than likely look a little dingy. I would opt for a white dress rather than something else.

I agree with megz06 – if you wear off-white next to a true white, it will look dingy. If you don’t want to wear a true, bright white dress, then you might want to go with one that’s not even meant to look white – a blush or champagne dress might look nice, especially with his navy uniform top. Bring along a true white shirt when you’re trying on dresses to compare colors with.

My dress was off white. It was somehwere between white and ivory, I forget exactly what it was called. My husband was in stark white but it looked just fine. Here’s two pictures:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Honestly I think it looks just fine. My dress didn’t look dingy in the least.

@wubewe:  First, thank you! I was a bit worried about it, but I didn’t like the look of straight white on me, so I went with what looked good on my skin, not what was going to match Darling Husband. It didn’t look the least bit dingy in person or in photos (though to be fair, in photos at least, I don’t know the level of editing that may have been applied). In person though, no one noticed, or at least cared enough to point it out.
