If you were going bespoke/custom/MTM you could have picked the cloth that fits the temperature range you mentioned. Anything in the 260-290 grams per meter will be fine. If you want RTW suit then you will have to feel the cloth before buying. As for the color, I think a plain Navy Blue suit with a white shirt and maroon/red tie with plain toe or cap toe black oxfords will work the best. For the second wedding, try the same suit with a different shirt/tie combo.
Why are you insisting on a $3 tie? If the reason is that you must wear a tie at work and you hate your job then you should be looking for another job. If you are just too cheap then buy a $10 tie and skip a big mac combo.

I see Tito and I raise you Jinnah, an Indian statesman and the founder of Pakistan. It is said that he was a regular customer of Savile Row and had over 200 suits and dozens of bespoke shoes. He also had a liking for Sulka ties. The most important difference between him and Tito was that he paid for his suits/shoes out of his own pocket. He was one of the top lawyers in London when he lived there and the most expensive lawyer in India when he moved back....

If you paid $100 for a suit that doesn't fit you then in my opinion you paid too much. Most likely the coat and sleeves are too long for you. A good tailor will be able to make it look half decent after alterations but do you really like this suit so much that you would spend maybe another $100 to make it fit? If I were you, I would just return the suit and get one from their stock in my size.

I can understand a man making a mistake with the button if he was in a hurry but the deep crease on the bottom of the jacket is not excusable.
