It won’t be a problem, especially if the guys are wearing a vest or jacket over their shirts. You really can’t tell unless you layer the white shirt over the ivory dress, which I suspect you’re not planning on doing. It’ll be fine 🙂

I plan on doing white shirts with my ivory dress.  I really don’t think it’ll matter.  It’s not like the white will be directly next to your dress, they’ll be wearing jackets right?  I wouldn’t worry about it at all.  I’m not.

It doesnt matter. Even if you get Ivory shirts for the men, it will still not be an exact match to your dress because ivory shirts are more yellow than Ivory gowns.

Your dress will NOT look dingy! Your FI’s suit will be next to your dress not his shirt.

Do a search here on WeddingBee for many more posts for some extra reassurance.

@jaykayel:  I’m doing the white shirts and my dress is ivory.  Those Mens Warehouse “ivory” shirts are yellow!! EW! My dress is NOT that color.

This is a guest photo, but I had an ivory dress and Darling Husband wore a white shirt.  I don’t think it looks dingy…

Don’t worry about it, your dress will not look dirty.

I’ll echo PPs…. ivory and white work fine together. My dress was ivory and his shirt was white.

I did ivory dress and white shirts as well.  I do NOT like the look of ivory shirts at all!  All the pics looked great.  Not to worry.
