We’re having the ivory vest and tie but went with the ivory shirt (my dress is also ivory though).  I’ve heard that it can be worn either way.  If you saw it in person and liked the way it looked, I wouldn’t worry about it.

I think it makes the ivory look dirty.

I also had an ivory dress and mu husband wore and ivory shirt and vest.  Maybe you can ask to see another ivory shirt?

I’m wondering about this as well. I plan on having my Fiance in an ivory vest and tie to match my dress with the rest of the guys wearing dark purple vests and ties. I originally envisioned all of them in ivory shirts but I’ve read a lot of other posts about it just not looking as good as a crisp white shirt so now I’m torn.

I don’t think the contrast looks bad at all… The jacket he will be wearing will hide most of the contrast, really all you will see is the collar peeking out.

And when FH finally takes the jacket off you guys will be partying it up at the reception and no one will give a hoot. 🙂

We did white shirt and ivory vest.  The ivory shirts all looked too yellow to us.
