I don’t think that either color will look better with his uniform.  What you should focus on is what looks best on you.  Some people look horrible in white (myself included) so I wouldn’t have worn it even if I thought my husband’s outfit would look better with that than ivory.

I guess if both white and ivory look equally good on you, I’d go with white for a crisper look. I think ivory looks just fine; it’s about your coloring. But if coloring isn’t a concern, I suppose I’d do white.

@MarissaMillett: Haha, thanks. 🙂 I have them all.

But yeah, I think white. I had a friend marry a military officer; she wore bright white, with a navy sash.

November, which means “winter white” is the color of the season. So, I would go with ivory.

My sister married a Marine and she went with white.  It looked very nice with his uniform!  But, I also agree with the PP’s, that you need to find a shade and dress that you love just as much! 🙂

My sis also chose black and red for her colors and it all looked really good together, so compliments to your color choices too!

Hi there! I’m marrying an Air Force officer and we will have several branches of the military present and in uniform during the wedding. The dress I tried on was ivory and I liked it but my FI’s uniform will have white in it. As someone already stated, it’s ultimately up to you but for me, I thought an Ivory dress up against his uniform with a white bowtie and white vest would look funny. I’m going with white. I think white will look nice up against the red and black as well.

Hope that helps!

I married a Naval officer who was wearing his dress whites (think of the movie “Officer and a Gentleman”) and I wore an ivory dress. To be honest, ‘whites’ doesn’t always mean WHITE.

For about 90% of our day and pictures, you can’t tell the difference between his whites and my ivory dress.

I think white would look really sharp with his uniform.  My Fiance is in the Air Force though, and their dress blues are a strange very-dark-blue-but-not-quite-navy.  I got a champagne colored dress because it looked good on me and didn’t clash with him.  My girls are wearing a silvery-blue, and all together, it looks great!   Just go with what you want!
