    He wants to wear an all white suit thing?

  • Yes he wants to wear all red, white bottoms with red jacket or all white. He can be very difficult

    I think he will look like a cartoon. That being said, either will be fine as far as "matching" him.
    What did you think would happen if you walked up to a group of internet strangers and told them to get shoehorned by their lady doc?~StageManager14

    I think he could wear white and you could wear ivory.  A lot of people think that white suits and/or button down shirts are better than ivory because ivory can appear dirty/dingy, example:

    RE the red and white, it might look good, does your FI usually go bold with his style?

  • I think he'll look ridiculous no matter which you wear. It's his call, but I would be seriously begging him to reconsider.

  • I have...he doesn't think he will look good in Ivory but I'm sold on this Ivory dress

    He doesn't have to wear specific wedding colors though. Why doesn't he just wear a regular black, gray, navy, or tan suit?

    So much this.

    Unless he usually dresses in bold colors, him in a red jacket and white pants will just look...bad. And even if he does wear bold colors often, this isn't a Sunday afternoon in the Hamptons, this is a wedding.

    I feel like all the red white and blue will look a little too.. "'MERICA!". Does your FI normally wear bright colors?

    Can you get a swatch of the ivory dress? Some "ivory" dresses are really just a soft white. Here's an ivory jacket:

    That being said, out of all the options white is likely the best.

  • Whatever you decide I hope that you can choose either white or ivory for both of you. I don't think it's a good idea to use both colors. Good luck!
