Maybe this is a myth.  My dress was ivory, his shirt was white, we looked fine.  I worried about it too, but you couldn’t tell at all.  Every bride I know that wore ivory has been worried, and their pictures all turned out just fine!  Good to know, huh?!! 🙂

The people at the tux place told my fiance to wear a white shirt and an ivory vest.  They said that would make my ivory gown and his ivory vest “pop.”   All of the guys will be wearing white shirts.

I heard this, too, but I can’t tell in any of our wedding pictures.  For the most part, my husband’s vest covered up the shirt.  I think it’s only true if he was just wearing a white shirt and your ivory dress was a very distinct color of ivory.  To me, most ivory gowns just looks like a “soft” white anyway.
