 Men can look like they are playing dress-up in a white or ivory tux.

This is from a blog entry about how to wear a tux:

 Thou shall not match one’s tuxedo or associated accessories with the attire of his date.  It does not matter what your date says, the purpose of your tuxedo is not to match or compliment her dress.  Thou is meant to look stunning in one’s own right, changing one’s attire to suit her will only detract from the integrity of one’s tuxedo.

Are you wearing the black sash with your dress? I think your groom would look stunning wearing a black tuxedo.

If you are wearing a beaded sash, I would suggest grey.

@ladybugbride215:  I honestly couldn’t get a pic good enough to see what color silk candlelight is, so I don’t think I can comment on the veil.

I will say that he definitely can and should wear a white shirt. For most of the wedding day (until late in the evening when the guys take off their jackets) his shirt will not be directly against your dress. Ivory shirts can have a yellowish tinge and look dingy. Nothing look sbette than a crsip white shirt with a black tux.
