Ivory dress...what color suit?

THe FI and I have been going back and forth with what color suit him and his groomsmen should wear.  We are having a summer wedding and my dress is very ivory.  He is dead set on a black suit.  My girls are wearing a terra cotta colored dressed. 


I am concerned a black suit will look bad against my ivory dress.  I also worry that if he wears a white dress shirt my dress will look dingy.


I can't visualize the right look right now.  I need some picture inspiration.

I don't think black suits will look bad. Im not a fan of the white suits or ivory. It look like prom attire to me . But tons of people like it.

A black suit should be fine, even on the beach.  It's definitely been done!

Has he considered a linen one or just a shirt and light pants?

We had the guys in ivory shirts, black ties, and light gray pants for our beach wedding (my hubby wore a jacket, too).  The guys clothes are the Calvin Klein tuxes from the Men's Wearhouse:

I definitely feel better about the black suit and ivory dress after looking at some of the pictures! I guess I am just worried about it looking too "halloween"ish because the girls are in a sort of orange color.

LOL. I have a slight preference for lighter suits on the beach, but I definteily think black is workable. :)

Not a fan of ivory suit. How about dark or light grey, black shirt and ivory tie? in case you're having yr dress altered (shortened) you can make a tie out of it.
