Of course I have to bring Randy Fenoli into this, but here an his excerpt from his book “It’s All About the Dress” where he chimes in on the “off-white shirt” debate:

“Unless you are wearing a colored shirt, and even if your bride is wearing an off-white gown – which it will most likely be if it is silk – you should always wear a white shirt, not ivory or off-white. An off-white shirt will look like it needs to be laundered. It should be clean, fresh and white.”

I think if anyone knows Men’s dress fashion, it would be Randy. I say stick with the white shirts. Plus, it won’t be right next to your dress, there will be a jacket in between.

My husband wore a white shirt with a charcoal grey suit.  My dress was an almost white ivory and it looked great together!

@AdriannaJean:  Thanks for this.  I <3 Randy and he definitely knows fashion.  Now I feel better about deciding to get white shirts for the guys.  They will be in grey suits and I thought the ivory shirts just did not look right.

my dress is “ivory” and my husbands shirt is pure white! i was SUPER worried about it before, and looked for months for the perfect ivory shirt. went with white, and im totally fine with it! doesnt bother me in pictures, and on the day i didnt think twice about it.

They had ivory shirts at the dress shop that Darling Husband and the groomsmen used, I think it’s pretty standard! Just make sure you look at them in person first, for instance the tux shirts in ivory were a light color, but some of the dress shirts for suits were VERY dark ivory, and I would have opted for white in that case.
