hello!

 

my dress is ivory lace over oyster (not quite gold/champne but slightly darker than ivory) and we just went this weekend to pick the tuxes. The owner of the shop immediately asked what color my dress was- and when I said ivory…he immediately said the guys would be in ivory shirts. I had a concern about the ivory men’s shirts looking not the same as bridal ivory– I thought they would look yellowish/dirty based off what I have read here…and the pleated ones DO…but the ones I saw that were non-pleated did not look yellowish. So, right now my fiance is going to be in black tux/ivory shirt/ivory vest/ivory tie, and all the groomsmen will be in black tux/black vest/black tie/ivory shirt (just like you!)

 

However, I am also second guessing whether or not to put them in all white shirts instead of ivory just in case they end up looking yellowish!

 

why are these little details sooooo stressful?? my fiance thinks I am crazy.

 

but–I do not think a white shirt will make your dress look dingy.

I would say go with white then. From browsing through all the boards here, most girls who wear ivory dresses have their guys in white–and it doesnt look bad! besides, what everyone says–who really is going to notice at the wedding?! (or care for that matter!)
