Hello bees! I am a bride that has a light ivory pronovios dress. I am concerned about the dress shirt/tie. (I have hear it can make a dress look dirty, if the groom wears the wrong color)
My colors are charcoal gray, and yellow. My dress color is “Light Ivory”. The groomsmen are all buying their suits for $123. My fiance and I are going to buy them their shirts, and ties. We are not sure on the color of the dress shirts, since my dress is a light ivory. Do we go with white? Off white? Candlestick? Ivory? I have no idea, and it’s hard to find different whites for men out there! Any help would be great ladies!! Thank you!!
My groom to be, and groomsmen will all be in the same color shirt, but the groom will have a matching “white” tie, and the groomsmen will have a bright yellow tie.

I’ve posted pictures addressing white/ivory issues before, here they are again to give you an idea. I worried about white/ivory stuff too! My husband’s tie is white (shirt light green), and my FIL’s shirt is white. My dress is ivory.

I have an ivory dress (almost champagne color) and we ended up with white shirts for the guys. I don’t think it makes the dress look “dirty” at all. Maybe that is just me, I think you can see a difference sometimes but not dirty. I personaly didn’t like how the ivory shirts looked under a black jacket, those I thought looked dirty. The sales girls at menswarehouse really tried to sell those ivory shirts though, they weren’t too happy with me. The groom will have on a champagne tie, to kind of tie it all together.

My dress is ivory and the guys will wear white shirts. I don’t think it makes that much of a difference and for the sake of easily dressing them all we went with white.
