Ivory color dress - what color should groom's shirt be?

My gown is an ivory/latte color.  Should he wear a white shirt or an off white shirt?  The look I like is the black suit, white shirt, black tie.


When we went for a consult at Men's Wearhouse, they suggested an off white color.  They say my dress will look dingy in photos if he wears a white shirt and stands next to my ivory dress.  Kinda takes away my vision of a crisp clean white shirt and black tie.


Thoughts?

We are getting Ivory shirts for our GM too- but they don't look ivory really unless you put it next to true white.  Being that my dress is ivory as well, there is no doubt that were getting ivory for them...  We just did all our stuff at Friars- and it looked great! No one can even tell that its ivory...  It will look great still agianst the black- its more to go with the tones and your color so it doesn't look off!


- HMM :)

Personally I would go for white. Ivory tends to look a bit dingy in photos with a black suit.


My dress is creme which is a deep creamy ivory and DH is wearing a white shirt with a black tux.
