I personally don’t like all-white on guys either, especially since your dress, being ivory, is sort of “off white.” I think it may look weird in pictures. Has he thought of that? I mean I don’t think this is a HUGE deal, but I do agree that Ivory and White may look strange since you’ll be next to eachother in so many pictures. Why is he so set on wearing white himself?

I too am not a fan of all white on guys, but that’s just me lol, I would try again and convince him how it may not match with you and that it might look odd in pictures, hopefully he can be swayed your way. Maybe try and get someone that he values thier opinion weigh in on the subject too (not saying he doesn’t value your opinion)Good luck!

I agree with the PPs. I think having you in Ivory with him in white might look a little odd. Has he considered getting a light tan suit? That would still be light and breezy for a beach wedding, but it wouldn’t constrast against your gown. You don’t want to wash each other out.

I don’t love white on guys, but if he REALLY wants it, I’d let it go (after bugging him about it just a time or two more haha). Honestly to everyone but the totally wedding obsessed, it will probably just look like you are both wearing white. But they make ivory suits for men so that will probably help this situation. I would also bombard him with pics of very pale suits (to match your ribbon) just to see if maybe he can’t be swayed. Something similar in color to this maybe?
