I would put them in white shirts– there will be enough of a color gap between them and your dress that it wont be noticable.

I know what you mean! My dress is ivory as well (a darker ivory, I think, too), and I asked the groomsmen to buy ivory shirts.  They found some really nice looking ones that weren’t dingy and yellow-y at Macy’s.  They just got them the other day, so I can check the brand for you later if you’d like.

We went with the ivory b/c it matched my dress perfectly and the white looked crazy unmatching next to my dress. I feel bad b/c I know everyone likes white shirts as opposed to ivory but I don’t want to not match. So we’ll just hope they look great regardless and hopefully photograph white enough to not look creamy. Good luck! We’re getting married this weekend so I’ll know how well it worked after that!

I have been considering the same question, and I think we are going with white shirts for the groomsmen.  Ivory can look too yellowy to me, which I do not like.  My gown is a dark almost antique ivory color.  I am not afraid of my dress looking dirty; I think it will be obvious that it is ivory.  I hope, anyway!

But @sarahbabs I’d love to know which brand you bought, too!  Maybe we will do that instead…
