    Hi all,

    I have an Ivory dress and I was going to have FI and the Groom's men wear Ivory shirts (Tommy Bahama style). FI would wear a tan suit over the shirt and the GM would wear tan pants. I found the perfect shirt for them to wear (not Tommy Bahama, but same material and look for $100 less!) but it is more of an off white or "cream" color. Is that a bad option? Does it need to be closer to my color? I'm so bad with picking out the colors!!! Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

      No, that will be perfect. If you want to see how it looks you can look at the bottom of this post at my pro pics.

        I think since cream/off-white/ivory are all in the same color family, the guys should be fine with a slightly different shade for their shirts. Especially since the GM will be standing a small distance from you and FI will have the tan suit to break it up a little, if that makes sense! :)

          I just thought of another option... the FI could wear an ivory shirt and the GMs wear the creme shirts... I don't know!!! This is harder than finding my gown :)

          Please be honest!

            I said the same thing! Harder than finding your dress for sure. But anything off white/ivory should work just fine:) Try not to get too wrapped up in it bc you'll drive yourself mad.

            OH, and I would keep goom/groomsmen in same color about. They'll be in more pics together than you will be, does that make sense?

              Thank you so much!! Looking at your photos really helps! I was trying to do a search online for something similar, but you aren't kidding, these are the same colors! I'm even doing a turquoise for the BMs...ha! The GM attire looks exactly how I envision mine. My FI however, will probably wear the same shirt as the GM but with a suit. He also will not wear a tie. But other than that, your photos really give me a good idea. I feel much better now.

                Totally! Yeah! I think my decision is made. I'm so happy!

                On a comletely different note (completely!!), what is that blue drink that you are drinking in your photos? It is so pretty! I would love to have a signature drink...though not sure if my resort does that or not.

                  Sure! I'm glad you found a good deal. I love Tommy Bahama too but couldn't ask anyone to pay that much. We ended up going to men's warehouse and getting a really great deal... so good that we paid for the men's attire actually.
                  OH, and at Men's Warehouse they have a silk private label pant that is made by Tommy Bahama. They have a couple different styles/colors of kahki and come in a wide range of sizes which is nice. This is what we ended up with and they were buy one get one 50% off. They have this sale alot. My DH's suit is Calvin Klein and we got it fro there on the same promotion. Good luck and try not to over think it too much. As long as the groom looks good...

                    I want to say it is a hurricane. But ask your hotel/WC if they could make a blue signature drink- I think they must get this request often. It even had a red cherry so it matched my colors exact. What color are your flowers, accent?

                      Oh and we skipped the champagne and did this drink. Another option if they are offering champagne. That saved us some money and it wasn't missed.
