    wow... where do I start??

    So... i ordered 2 shirts from wedding tropics......... one ivory on ivoiry embroidery and one ivory and turquoise (to match MOH)..... So excited....

    Until I get them TODAY and they look more Khaki then ivory which i thought was off whitish---slight creme......... No it looks TAN ....... ask the company if they shipped it wrong they said NO that is their ivory went on the shit AGAIN and looked at their colors and it doesnt look like the ivory on their site... AND the shirt is not long enough but i re mesaured him and the measurment is accurate and there size is that same measurment.............SO i have no clue what went wrong...

    So here is the question.......... I am wearing and Ivory Dress... the best man will he be okay in the tanish shirt with turqouise and maybe chocloate brown pants or any suggestions?

    What should I get my FI to wear... it was the same shirt as BM but has short sleeves and FI was long and the embroidery was not colored on FI....... So iw as thinking a suit but i am scared of ivory dilemmas........

    I am out 90.00 for his shirt that they wont take back and depressed and frustrated not knowing what to do!

      Ooh that's a good question...

      Is your FI shirt wearable as is without a suit? or is it not even what you envisioned and now need something new?

      I would just keep him in the longsleeve with the no colored embroidery and the BM in the short sleeved... but it's hard to say without seeing them...any pics

            that sucks about the shirt not being the color you wanted. I got our guys' shirts from there and had no problems but i got white ones.

            how about a tan linen suit with an ivory shirt underneath for you fi?

              Do you think if I went with a Tan suit then everything will look alright as a whole? I mean I know that I dont have a big wedding party or anything but I just cant figure out what color suit will look the nicest..........

                I had the same issue when I ordered an ivory shirt for my son from another online retailer. When I got the ivory it was khaki/yellow and then I ordered white thinking it was be ivory. NO, it was WHITE!!!!
                Your wedding isn't until June and spring will be here soon so may you can find an ivory suit if you wait maybe another month or so.

                    No, I ordered from mycubanstore.com
                    We actually got lucky and went to SYMS and found ivory pants and shirt. Perfect color because my wedding and reception dress was ivory.

                      Ew...why won't they take it back!? That's silly. We had some drama with Men's Wearhouse of all places regarding color and stuff...we had to cancel our whole order.

                      I saw another thread this morning though about the linen stuff they have at Old Navy right now...it looks really nice and cheap!!! I'm definitely going to check it out. It looks like they have the color I want.

                      Good luck!
