What about a grey shirt?  Are they wearing blue ties?  It might help the ties to pop if the suit and shirt were similar grey tones.

White will honestly look fine, if you want to keep the guys’ look "formal." If you get into colored shirts….they’ll look more casual, and probably won’t look right with a vest.

I just realized you had no mention of vests….so I say you could go with either blue or white shirts. Both would look fine with grey suits!

Well if it is a little less foraml, without the ties, I’d say try for the blue shirts.  Have you looked around already and just been defeated?

I would do white shirts, maybe with colored vests of your choice. In photos, ivory or cream shirts can look yellowed. It seems like too much work to try to match the blues. White always looks fresh and crisp. That’s my vote!

I’m on the white boat. Chocolate and grey *might* work, but it’d be tricky and your accent color is blue anyway. I think it depends on the color blue, you should try a few blue shirts with the grey suits… but white is dashing and flattering and will look lovely next to your chocolate covered bridesmaids 😉

White is classic and looks good with just about any men’s suit or tux.

I think White goes with everything.  Is your dress a real white or ivory? I’d go with whatever color your dress.

White shirts with color boutineers.
