My Fiance seems to feel the need to wear all white. We are getting married on the beach and plan on him wearing a linen shirt and pants from StudioSuits. I am not a fan of all white, my dress is ivory with a champagne belt (below). I ordered swatches from the company and tried to talk him into a white shirt with natural colored pants (that would match the belt of my dress pretty well). Nope! Still stuck on all white. Should I just let this one go and let him have his way?

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’m glad I’m not the only one thinking it will look weird. I’m not really sure why he is so set on white, but this is the one thing he seems set on (everything else about the wedding is like whatever you want, but then asks why I did something the way I did, sigh) When I came home after I got my dress and I told him white would be a no go since it was ivory, he was like, “why didn’t you get white? Isn’t that the rule?” I told him no, many people don’t get white dresses and I didn’t find any white dresses I liked. (I’m still hearing about not getting white whenever we talk about this) Suits are a no go, neither him or his Bridesmaid or Best Man are big fans of suits. To give perspective, I think the dressiest items he owns are some sweaters (we had to go shopping for him when I was in a friend’s wedding a few years ago, he didn’t even have a pair of khakis!) Maybe I’ll try and get to his stepdad, he might be able to talk some sense into him, even if I have to tell him exactly what to say 🙂

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?
