WATTERS' Ivory:Ivory by WATTERS is a very light off-white that is easily mistaken for white – until you actually hold it next to a true white color swatch. Because it is such a light hue, it is less commonly worn by groomsmen and bridesmaids, but by the bride and groom. We at Bows-N-Ties paired dozens of ivory colored ties to WATTERS' fabric swatch in Lace as well as Dupioni Silk which are displayed above.Wearing an Ivory Colored Necktie/Bow Tie:Can an ivory colored tie be worn with a white dress shirt? The short answer is YES. In fact it is perfect look for the groom on his wedding day if the bride is wearing an ivory instead of a white colored dress. To create contrast to the white shirt and ivory tie combo, we suggest darker colored suits such as charcoal or black. Want a more formal look? Then wear an ivory colored bow tie with a classic black tuxedo and matching vest.
