It's a summer wedding. My dress is ivory lace and the groomsmen will be wearing gray suits... like a medium heather gray. When I asked about the colors for groomsmen shirts, I got 2 polar opposite responses. My wedding coordinator strongly suggested white, since ivory shirts always look dirty and don't coordinate well with gray. She also added that most people don't notice it anyway. My tux guy, however, said the opposite & said that the guys wearing white would make ME look dirty and it would stand out a lot. My fiance tried on the gray suit with the ivory shirt, and (when there's no white around) you really can't tell.
A little more info... the bridesmaids will be wearing 2 colors: my 2 sisters are wearing teal and my 2 other maids are wearing like an aqua-seafoam. The ties for the suits are striped with colors that coordinate with the dresses. I've attached pics of the gray suit with the IVORY shirt & the tie that the men will be wearing. The tie does have thin WHITE stripes.
What is the consensus from the Knot world?????
