I fell in love with a lace dress, Mori Lee 1903. I absolutely love the gold with the ivory overlay. My FH and I decided on grey tuxes for the guys, and he wants nothing but pure white shirts for under the tux. I’m having an issue because the white shirt will not look good with the dress I want, but I only want the dress in the gold color. It loses a lot of detail when it’s in pain ivory or white because there is gold embroidery throughout the lace. So basically my issue is my FH wants me to wear white because he doesn’t like how ivory looks with grey (I don’t see much of a difference) and wants me to either get the dress I love in white or just choose a new dress. I’m torn and in need of some advice!

Ouch! I’m sorry to hear that 🙁
Here’s the thing… you’re wearing the dress.
Not your FH. If you love it in gold then sweetie… GET IT IN GOLD! 🙂
If he is dead set on his styling, that is fine too. Both of you have your style and opinions and that is totally fine.
Could you ask an impartial person involved in the wedding, Maid/Matron of Honor or someone to look at both the dress and your FH’s outfit and basically tell FH that it will look lovely…
The majority of bridal gowns are ivory and lots are also gold, they look fine in all the wedding pictures and no-one really focuses on whether or not colours clash between the bride and groom.
No-one will be sitting at your wedding whispering “lovely dress… but it clashes with his shirt… and that grey? Oh no darling, how could you commit such a fashion crime”.
Looking at the dress you love, I think it’s gorgeous and would look fine with a grey suit and white shirt 🙂

@c0urtFTW: I wore the Mori Lee 1903 in gold/ivory and my husband had a grey tux with an ivory shirt. I wondered if I should go with white shirts but the lady helping me showed me the difference between the shirts and the ivory was more of an off-white/soft white if that makes sense. I think it actually looks white in some pictures. I’m not sure what kind of tux you are ordering but my husband had a charcoal grey Allure one.
