You’ll be fine with white, as I’m sure others will say, even if your dress is ivory. Here is my ivory dress and ivory veil with my man’s white shirt, white-on-white tie and gray suit, my ivory roses, and the officiant’s white shirt with black suit and gray-and-white tie.

Ivory shirts are typically more yellow than ivory dresses.  Have him wear a white shirt- you won’t even notice the difference.  There are numerous threads with photos of ivory brides and white-shirted grooms, if you want to check it out for yourself.

We were told if dress is Ivory shirts  should be Ivory… it’s really up to you but the idea is the Ivory may look dirty next to the white…

How “ivory” is your ivory dress? I’m having Fiance wear a white shirt because my dress looks a lot more white than ivory. The men’s shirts (as has been said) tend to look more yellow as ivory than ivory wedding dresses.

@jsanford:  

This is so not a dumb question.  I am glad you asked it, because I had never thought about it before.

My dress is “Light gold”, so we’re going with ivory shirts… But if your dress is ivory, you’ll be fine with white shirts!
