Heya hive. I’m scared about something clashing majorly on my wedding party. Here’s the skinny:
My dress is a light ivory (no yellow undertones, more brown) and taupe. (Modern Trousseau Autumn http://hitchedsalon.typepad.com/.a/6a01156f4fdbc9970c0120a737d6b6970b-pi)
We have my groom dressed in a light ivory vest and tie and a taupe shirt that matches the satin of my dress.
My bridesmaids are in sage green.
Here’s the thing, the place we are renting the guys’ suits from has two shirt options, white and very yellow ivory. Right now we have the boys in black tuxes with white shirts and sage green vests/ties to match the maids. The little ring bearer is also wearing a vintage short pants set in black and white with the little pull up socks.
Do you think it will look terrible that the rest of the boys have white shirts but the groom and I are ivory and beige?

I don’t think it will look terrible, you’ll stand out more 🙂 Your dress is gorgeous btw!

Really, I don’t think that the difference between the colors is as obvious as the wedding industry makes it out to be.

I think it will be just fine. It distiguishes the two of you from the rest.

Thank you all so much. That’s not me in the dress but I write a blog of my own so you can see how it all turns out in about a month:
I really appreciate the feedback. I was scared there for a minute. My fiance’s dad had me second guessing the ivory thing:

We actually ended up switching tux rental companies and getting everything we wanted. The Men’s Warehouse upset us in many ways and we went to Al’s Formal Wear. Al’s had a beautiful shirt in a color called “candlelight” which completely fit the bill. It was the perfect shade of not-too-yellow ivory. All the boys looked amazing!
