    its a subtle difference but the ivory matches perfectly… I had the worry my ivory dress would look dirty or yellowed beside a white shirt so our guys are getting ivory

    @DeeCee1029:  Hello there, lovely.  I have the same details as you.. ivory gown, dark purple (eggplant) Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses.. we went to Men’s Wearhouse where the nicest guy helped us out with our options.  He seemed very knowledgeable about the color coordination and random details.. and he was gay so I definitely trust his taste! lol.. 

    We ended up choosing white shirts for all the boys.. and ivory tie and vest for my groom.. all the Groomsmen are going to wear black ties/vests.  I thought it looked great!

     

    ETA: The boys will be incorporating purple into the colors by having purple bouts pinned on!

    No one notices the white shirt/ivorty dress difference and white shirt just looks better with a dark suit–go with the white shirt

    I have to comment…!!! I was a FREAK about wanting everything to match PERFECTLY. I posted about this as well and could not believe why everyone was telling me to go with white shirts… I was so worried my dress would look dingy. DO NOT worry… if your groom goes with ivory vest/and or tie the white shirt will look great. The ivory on the tie/vest will tie everything together and the white shirt will keep it from being too monochromatic.

     

    I would have the groomsmen wear white shirts, purple ties, and have your groom wear white shirt, ivory tie/vest.

    definitely an ivory shirt – the white shirt will dull your dress.

    I really like the ivory tie with it! It really pulls it all together. I do not like it with the white shirt because when you hold the dress up next to it, you can really see the difference. I’m not sure it would make much difference on the actual wedding day, but in pictures of the two of you it may be noticeable in a way you don’t want. I really think the ivory tie pulls it all together if you like the white shirt the best with the gray suit.
