    I am freaking out! I got my dress and I love it. The thing is I am one of those matchy-matchy people. I am wondering if I wear ivory can my FI wear a white shirt. We got his outfit already. Will it wierd in pictures? It looks like most of the brides are wearing white. Here is the link to my dress Winnie Couture It is very daring and sexy! I love it. What does everyone think?

      WOW...its a gorgeous dress!! Very sexy!! Good for you to be able to pull it off!! lol
      As for the ivory with white...I think it would be ok. If you have his & yours you could just put them together to see what kind of a difference there is. I guess it depends on how ivory & how white!!
      Good Luck!

        I had an ivory dress and FI had a white shirt. It was totally fine.

        Take a look at some of my pics if you want to see how they look. There are several threads... just search for them.

          Your pictures look wonderful. That totally puts my mind at ease. Thanks!

          Oh one more thing...I love your planning thread. I have read it several hundred times. Is there a template for your welcome book. They are soooo cute!

            sure! Why not! Menswearhouse has off-white shirts if you are obsessed with matching, but otherwise I think it is fine.

              Hot dress! the back is gorgeous... well anyway I'm a matchy matchy person too and when i bought my white dress i ordered fi's shirt which i thought was white. When we got it in the mail i realized it was cream. I didnt think it would look right so i got him a new shirt. Looking back on it now, i think it would be okay and i was just being anal.

                Holy crap I LOVE your dress! That is gorgeous! I can not wait to see pictures from your wedding. They will be beautiful!
                Now, just incase you are still concerned... I had a NOT white dress. Technically it was gold with an ivory lace overlay and my husband wore white. You honestly can't even tell in the pictures. I think the sun was so bright that it made my dress look white! :)
