AmberArch:  There are dozens of old threads where the bride wore an ivory dress and the groom and groomsmen wore white shirts.

No matter what the salesman at Men’s Wearhouse say, white shirts will not make your dress look dingy, but ivory shirts can look dingy with grey pants.

Jules is right. Have the men be in white shirts.  I wore an ivory dress and it did not look “dingy” at all next to my husband’s white shirt 🙂


Ivory shirts and grey suits aren’t as nice as white on grey.  To me anyway.   And my friends were just in a wedding where ivory shirts and grey suits were requested and there was some trash talk amongst some of the male fashionistas.  *I* didn’t care as much as they did. Silly but because of that I’d do white with a grey suit.  


Trust me, the talk about how dingy your dress will look next to him is bull.

My Fiance is wearing a dark tweed grey suit and I have an ivory/champagne dress. However, our wedding is thi November, so grey tweed works for that time of year.

AmberArch:  Nothing looks better than a man in a white shirt. You aren’t going to be standing next to the groomsmen anyhow.
