    We’re doing white.  The guy at Men’s Wearhouse suggested it and Fiance agreed.  Esp. since Fiance is wearing a grey tux, I think the ivory shirt will end up looking dirty.

    White, we held the dress swatch up and it was closer to the white than the ivory.
    even though the dress is considered ivory

    I wore a “diamond white” dress from Maggie Sottero, which is not white, it’s not quite off white either.  It’s in between.

    My husband wore a white shirt and an ivory vest.

     

    ETA:  As requested, my pic of me in an ivory dress and Darling Husband in ivory vest.

    I have an ivory dress, so he’s doing a white shirt and an ivory vest.  We had the option for an ivory shirt too, but it looked more yellow.

    My dress is definitely ivory, but I thought the ivory shirts I’d seen looked yellow and dirty. I took my dress to the tux shop to compare it against the shirts. I will definitely be making him wear ivory. No question. My dress looked way too dark against a white shirt.

    @cradosta- I agree that the ivory shirts at Men’s Warehouse look yellowish. The second tux shop I went to had much better shirts, so you may have to shop around to find a good ivory shirt.

    I think you’d probably find that the ivory shirt is much more yellow than your dress.  Honestly, they call bridal dresses ivory but they are just a shade or two from white.  I think a white shirt would look better. 

    I had an ivory dress and the guys wore white shirts but since they all wore jackets you couldn’t really see them.  Actually, it’s not the best picture but you can see his collar next to my dress.

    I’m in ivory, Fiance will be in white!

    Ivory just looks dingy to me… White shirt with ivory dress, or even champagne or gold is totally fine in my book!

    Plus I think a crisp white shirt is sexy hahah  – I think tux places will tell you ivory if you’re in ivory b/c they dont’ know that much and that’s an easy answer to give.

    White shirts.  They are wearing gray tuxes and I didn’t like the look of the ivory shirts – it was too yellow.

    Since your doing a beach wedding have you thought about a linen suit?  They come in a variety of shades from white to cream.  I also had a friend with a beach wedding solve this by having him wear pink (although they are a little eccentric so I would never dare)

    We were told that it should be a white shirt and the vest and tie will be ivory. if you have an ivory shirt it looks really dirty but the vest does not against a white shirt. our groomsmen are wearing white shirts and silver vests & ties.  make sure you go and look at the items in person as they look different online than in person.

    I actually put a lot of effort into finding the right shirt to match my dress, especially since I saw pics from a friend’s wedding and you could clearly see the difference in pics where they were standing together and the groom was not wearing his jacket.  His white shirt made her ivory dress look very dirty yellow.

    The problem is that my DB, like others have said, is kind of in between white and ivory.  The ivory shirts we looked at were all too yellow-y.  But eventually we found a French-cuff shirt in “bone” that matches my dress exactly!  I think we ended finding it on Amazon somewhere…
