My gown was “diamond white,” which, as you may know, is technically a light ivory color.  Many gowns do not even come in bright white, but they do come in a lighter ivory tone and a darker ivory.

If your gown is a very dark ivory, I think it probably will present some challenges. However, if it is light ivory like mine was, I don’t think you will notice it at all in your pics. My Darling Husband wore a black tux with full dress tails with white tie, white shirt and white pique vest, and I cannot really see a big contrast with my gown, since the black of his tux was surrounding the white of his shirt.

ETA:  I just saw a pic of your gown. It’s beautiful, and it looks to be a light ivory rather than a dark one. What’s great about your gown in relation to the issue that is concerning you is that there is a lot of texture in your gown.  Because of that, there will be a lot of dark and light going on within the dress itself, vs a more “flat” looking fabric.

@Katherine27:  I agree. My flower girl’s dress was ordered in light ivory to match my gown.

In this picture I am wearing an ivory dress husband is wearing a white shirt – it photographs fine

And here is a non pro picture – I think it is fine here and my dress was a true ivory

I wore ivory and my flower girl has a bright white, you can tell the difference when were right next to each other but I didnt mind at all =)

I wouldnt’t worry too much. I’ve never seen ivory next to white and thought the ivory was “dirty” white. It just looks like a different shade of white. The pics above were great examples.

I wish I had thought to make a thread like this when I was fretting! My wedding dress was ivory, and my only concern was that I would clash with the bouquets since we went with all baby’s breath. But the fuss was for nothing, everything looked just fine.

I mean, you can certainly tell that my dress is not a true white when I’m standing near my husband’s white shirt, but it didn’t bother me the slightest in the end.

 

I don’t think you have anything to worry about =]

I think it depends on the kind of wedding you’re having, and yours sounds like it will be pretty formal.

My daughter’s gown was ivory and the Groomsmen wore ivory linen shirts. The groom, however, wanted a white shirt, and in their pictures it was really obvious and distracting. He didnt care, and I didn’t notice, really, but when I saw the pictures, I wish he had an ivory shirt too.

I worried about this exact thing.  My dress was a pretty dark ivory and he wore a white shirt since ivory looked funny with the color of the suit he was wearing.  It worked totally fine though, no need to worry.

I have the same concern! I have white chair covers and table linens so I’m worried that my ivory dress will look dirty next to the white linens. Does anyone have pics of this?

I was very anal about having ivory everywhere to match my ivory dress, however, when it came to my husband’s shirt for under his suit, we opted for white, the ivory was just too yellow… looking at pictures you don’t even notice that his shirt was a different color.
