You dress will look gorgeous!  Men’s wearhouse tried to tell me that the groomsmen and goom need to wear ivory shirts since my dress is ivory but the white shirts look sharper and there are several pics online that can show you examples of what an ivory dress looks like with a white shirt on the groom.  My rental company even tried to tell me that I need ivory table cloths but chances are you dress will look white even if it is ivory.

alisonredpath:  Our tuxedo rental guy told us to do ivory if my dress is ivory but honestly… I dont really think its a big deal. Your dress wont look dirty.

I had the same fear!  My dress is ivory but it pretty much looks white.  Get a swatch of the color of your dress and bring it to where the guys are getting their suits and compare the color.  Men’s wearhouse tried to tell me to get ivory shirts for the guys but the white shirts and my dress were way more similar! 🙂

They wore white shirts and it looked fine. The ivory men’s shirts are too yellow-looking and against my ivory dress, it would have made their shirts look dirty

Won’t be a problem. My dress was ivory. Men wore navy suits with white shirts. Sorry for the big pics
