Groom/groomsmen Dress Shirts

If I am wearing an ivory gown, then would it be noticeable in pictures if the groom wore a white dress shirt? Or should he wear a white/off-white/cream shirt? (we don't want to go with a colour; would like to keep the dress shirt neutral)

    I would hold his dress shirt up to your dress. my photographer said make sure his shirt isn't stark white because it can be noticeable in photos (I have an ivory dress).

    of course it does depend on the tone of the ivory.

    My dress is ivory, but it looks more white from far away. For the guys' shirts, I would make sure that the shirts aren't stark white, but a "white" shirt should look alright.

    I would call the place you got your Dress from and see if they can make a swatch for you. Then you can be confident knowing the colours are okay

    The guy we are getting our suits from recommended that the guys should wear the same colour shirts as my dress, if we chose to go with white. It will be pretty obvious if you're wearing ivory or champagne and they're wearing WHITE.

    You should be fine! Generally men's dress shirts aren't made of material that is as STARK WHITE as a wedding dress can be! Satins (on a wedding dress) can make them look brighter/whiter! But since most dress shirts are just cotton the brightness wont be as alarming in white!

    I agree with Tori. I never really thought of this as my dress is ivory also. I didn’t want to be in such a bright white because I am super pale. But I don’t see having a white shirt for the guys.
    like Brittany said just making sure it isn’t super white you should be ok

    It depends on how "ivory" it is... My dress is ivory, but you'd easily confuse it for white... just not "snow"/stark white...

    The gentleman helping us put the tuxedo together for my FH (he's the only one in a white dress shirt, the groomsmen have black, which makes it easy too, haha)... he asked about the colour of my dress, and he made his best suggestion based on what shirt works 'best' for most ivory dresses.

    It doesn't need to match perfectly, and it never will... as long as you're not getting him a stark white dress shirt with your ivory dress, you're fine. Do NOT get him a creamy coloured shirt, it will not photograph well, and may make your groom look 'off'. Just a nice, regular, not-super-white, white dress shirt... lol.

    I wouldn't think that it would be too much of a difference but now that you mention it I have an ivory gown as well.... As of right now he should be wearing white but I'll be following this discussion to find out how big of a deal it really is....
