      Wow-Your dress is HOT!!!
      I don't think there's anything with white and ivory...my dress is 'Natural' and my FI is going to wear a white dress shirt. The BM's have an ivory sash on the dress and the GM's will wear ivory shirts to match. I think it looks fine!!

        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!

          Fantastic Dress!

          I'd say it is probably fine... but a new shirt is a pretty cheap way to calm the nerves.....

            Amazing dress!!! FH is going to love that... !!!

            I am also a very 'matchy matchy girl' ... but IMHO it will still look beautiful. I would not worry about it. If you want to get technical, they are both neutrals and willl not clash or look strange next to eachother.

            And, with a a dress that HOT; noone is going to notice the color difference all they are going to see is a beautiful bride!

              Thanks for all of your input. I am feeling much better about the situation.

              I got my dress a couple of weeks after I finished my firwst trithalon. I was in really good shape at the time. Now I just have to maintain it until July 3rd. Not so easy when you love chocolate as much as I do.

              Thanks for the template Becks!

              And thanks agian to everyone else for your very helpful input.

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?

                  I'm having a similar problem but I can't just go buy another pair of pants. My dress is white but when I ordered FI's pant thinking they were white and they came in off-white I was disappointed. Now that I see some pics though I'm feeling better about it too. It's hard to find a pair of white pants that aren't very thin linen

                    I too am wearing an ivory dress (with a kind of pink undertone) and my FI is wearing a white shirt. He was all concerned about it first, but I assured him that it will look fine. I love the look of tone on tone. I actually think you can never go wrong with it!
