    WE’re doing it, but in ivory to match my dress.  So Obviously, I love it!  I think it’s soooooo sexy.

    I kinda love it!  It would be unique, and very fitting with your theme.  Also, I LOVE that picture πŸ™‚

    I love guys in white tux jackets! If that’s what he wants to wear, I say, go for it! It’ll make him happy and I think it will be cool.

    We thought about doing this and ultimately decided not to. But i think it’s really sharp, especially for a formal wedding. Are you planning black tie? If so, I would definitely go for it!

    I love that picture!

     

    I voted no, because it is sartorially incorrect. A white dinner jacket is an accepted alternative to a black dinner jacket only in the tropics (year round) or in the southern locales during the summer. Also, it is difficult to pull off the look without looking like a waiter. However, if your guests are not likely to know or care of this “rule”, and you both like the look, I say go for it!

    I love the way it looks and that he’s so into it.

    My only concern is for your dress. The only way that would work is if your dress is a true white. An ivory dress will look dirty next to a white jacket. So keep this in mind.

    I don’t particularly like the look, but it’s better than the all-white tux!

    I believe the ettiquete for that is that the wedding must be an evening wedding? idk I can’t remember now.

    Looks great—and why not go with what Fiance is excited about!  Its great that he’s excited πŸ™‚  Plus, there will probably be at least SOMETHING you will roll your eyes at about your pictures 20 years from now, so why not go with whatever you love NOW πŸ˜‰  Its unique, fits your theme, and makes you guys happy!
