My dress is ivory- it complimented my light olive skin tone so much better than white. I felt the white washed me out terribly, even with a tan!!– and this is my first wedding. In my opinion, I think you should go with whatever compliments your skin tone.
White was the norm, but so was not wearing black to a wedding. Now I see black as the color for weddings. Today’s standards have transformed generation to generation.

Just if you choose ivory like I have….be-careful when choosing colors for your wedding and decor. I’m going with ivory for the groomsmen and my fiance–also with satin ivory tablecloths, satin ivory chair covers with white accented napkins and other white accented decor including a mix of creme and white colored roses. But then again, my wedding is vintage garden theme so the ivory and pastel green meshes perfectly.

Okay ivory dress ladies, where did you get your ivory men’s shirt? I agree with whoever stated that the shirts at Mens Warehouse were YELLOW (so gross looking) not ivory at all. So we are on the hunt for a slim fit off-white shirt….!

My dress was ivory and champagne and the guys wore ivory shirts. We held up white ones and different colours of ivory next to my dress and found ones that looked the best 🙂
