I dont have a picture, we went the way of doing an ivory shirt and vest for Darling Husband and ivory dress for me.  The white didnt necessarily make the dress look dirty but the white did stand out alot more.  Do you have a Friar Tux near you?  Their ivory is not a dark ivory, its almost a soft white that your Fiance might like.

Is he opposed to wearing a white shirt with an ivory vest?  We went to MW as well and they told us that white would make my ivory dress look dirty.  Then we went to a local place for tux rentals and the seamstress there showed us an ivory vest on a white shirt and it looked really nice (the ivory vest gave his outfit more dimension in my opinion).

I am having the same issue. My dress is Ivory and I want my Fiance in Ivory but when I went into Mens warehouse and discovered the Ivory shirt was yellowish…I freaked! I dont want the guys having to wear Ivory shirts with the black vests and tie.

I have decided to put Fiance in white shirt, Ivory Vest and tie and the groomsman in White shirt, Black Vests, and tie.

This way everything will mesh. I dont think it will make our dress look dirty.

I dont think itll make your dress look dirty.  I had an ivory dress, and my hisband wore an ivory vest and ivory tie over a white shirt – THAT didnt even look dirty.  I have photos if you want to see them, but I dont think ANYONE would think your dress was dirty..

When I was thinking about purchasing an ivory dress, we planned to have him in a white shirt with an ivory tie and vest. It is what the woman at the salon suggested and we thought it looked very nice. It also keeps you from having to have every white thing be ivory, since you really incorporated both colors.

You can look at some of my recap pictures.  I think that Men’s Warehouse is just trained to say that line.  We went with the ivory shirt and vest since my dress was ivory and I think they were too dark for my dress. Also, the fit of their ivory shirts was really wide and the fabric was not as nice.  In retrospect, I think we should have gone with the white.

We’re using Men’s Wearhouse as well, and the rep we dealt with was upfront about their ivory being yellowish.  She recommended we actually look elsewhere for the tie and shirt, which we did.  We’re using the ivory MW vest, but we found a beautiful ivory tie and shirt at Dillards.  The shirt is Calvin Klein and the tie is Murano – the catch is that both were labeled as white, but we compared them to other bright white shirts/ties, and they’re definitely an ivory color.  Apparently, this is pretty common, so don’t just trust the label colors.

I wore an ivory dress and Darling Husband wore a white shirt with an ivory tie and black vest. It actually looked really nice! I can’t post a picture since I’m at work, but I can post one when I get home if you want!

I would love to see any pictures with ladies wearing ivory and men in white dress shirts.  My honey and I went to Men’s Warehouse last night and they insisted that he be in ivory (because I am), but their ‘ivory’ is more like YELLOW.  It’s awful!  I know in the long run, it’s not a huge deal, but I really don’t like it.  Also, they don’t have the option to tie their own tie.  One of the reasons I’m marrying him is because of his ability to tie a beautiful Windsor knot (haha).  He looks incredibly handsome in a tie and I’ve always envisioned him with a Windsor knot on our wedding day, and now I’m so disappointed that it’s not an option.
