Personally I love ivory over champagne.  I agree wholly that it makes lace and the shape of the dress “pop” a lot more, and I’ve always preferred that to the details getting washed out.  Your dress is stunning, and I don’t think you have anything to worry about.  And no, your groom won’t need to avoid white shirts – it will look totally fine.

The dress is beautiful.  I love that the color makes the lace details pop.  It doesn’t look dirty at all, just lovely and delicate.  And I don’t think the groom needs to avoid white.

Gorgeous dress! I’m all for champagne vs ivory. My dress was champagne, husband wore white shirt. I didn’t even think about what kind of white shirt he was wearing lol… no it didn’t look bad or make my dress look dirty. 

I also had ivory veil (which match the lace and the top layer of the tulle). 

Champagne to me looks pinkish when placed under ivory lace and tulle. I don’t think it looks “dirty” if placed next to other warmer whites like ivory (maybe it would against white white).

My dress had an ivory lace over champagne lining and I think it adds so much depth to a dress! I think it suits you very well and is beautiful!

I love it. And I’d do ivory shirts for the men.I am also wearing ivory and having my groom wear ivory not white. Ivory photographs white anyways.

My dress was also ivory over champagne. I loved it! I never would have even thought that it could look dirty. Haha 

My husband and his groomsmen wore gray on gray so I didn’t give the color much thought.  I I would think you would be fine with an ivory shirt.

It’s beautiful. You’re right – the subtle golden backdrop makes the details in the lace pop much more. I like it a lot! You’re going to be stunning <3

I think it looks beautiful! I would not have the groom and groomsmen do ivroy shirts, they always photograph dirty and dingy to me, I would just have them to white, it will look fine next to you, especially since they will most likely have a suit on over it!
