We’ve been looking through pix of grooms and groomsment trying to get ideas for what color suit FH should wear, and I realized almost every pix I’ve seen has the groom and his men in white shirts. Is this tradition? what looks best? the easy-go-to option??

Well most guys are in a white shirt because they’ll be wearing a tux or suit jacket over it. But there is nothing mandatory about it. It’s just what comes with the tux. If you want something different, it’s up to you. My best friend had the groomsmen wear coffee colored slacks and sage green dress shirts for her Hawaii wedding.
I’d say try and make it work with your theme and location.

I think that most people chose that because it’s easiest, but if you want that pop of color, I think it would be nice.

It’s pretty standard formal menswear. Doesn’t mean you can’t do something different if you want to!

White shirts are easier – they can be found at almost any store (if you have out-of-town groomsmen or aren’t getting a tux rental) and they go with everything.
If you can avoid the white shirt – go for it! I’m all about breaking wedding traditions and rules! Do what fits your wedding party and theme!
Oh, now that I think about it, I have several different wedding colors in my scheme – each man could wear a different colored shirt, but have the same jacket and pants on…ohhhh! Thanks for the inspiration!

i think it’s standard for men’s tux’s. we went with ivory, to match my dress, plus it’s easy to match any color of tie to it.

It’s pretty much standard and classic for most menswear, or at least formalwear. 🙂

we are doing black tux shirts with champagne vests, so they will look HOT when the jackets come off! my baby bro (who is a groomsman) bought his tux so he could wear it to prom and he loved the black shirt. i think it makes a nice balance with an ivory tie and chapagne vest.
as long as you get a tux shirt any color will look good and still be pretty formal.
