Does anyone the rule for mixing white and ivory together. For such things as decorations.

There is no rule. Do what you like. Personally, I would add at least one color like a light green or even yellow depending on what time of year you are planning your wedding.

@ Jenn I did find a few article and they are mixed about it. So I went to David Tutera's site and he was all for it. But still wondering about it.

I was thinking it would be ok as long as it was consistent..not just one item looking out of place. Im still up in the air on it also

I think it probably depends on what you had in mind and how it was presented. As you can see from my picture I was wearing a white dress but my "white" roses were actually more ivory in color. I personally didn't think it looked bad at all.
The picture Cyndi posted looks great and has some great examples.

You could also step up the Ivory color to a Champagne color. Champagne would have a little more contrast as it's slightly darker than the ivory and has more 'gold' in it.

I was adviced to keep it consistent. What I mean is: if your dress is ivory, use ivory in the decor of the ceremony. You don't want the decor making your dress "dirty", since ivory is a darker white.
I am using white and ivory in my decor. However, because of budget (ivory linens are more expensive, I couldn't find an ivory aisle runner in my budget), I'm running the risk and mixing it al up lol. If it doesn't bother me, it shouldn't bother anyone else (i.e. my mom, my FMIL)
My dress is ivory and so are the FGs. my aisle runner, chair pads and dinner linens are white.
