Arauerbach - What about something like The Foxx showed in this post http://www.styleforum.net/t/275650/the-state-of-black-tie-your-observations/2900_50#post_7208923 I think it would go well with your dress. You have posted in a forum where many of the members have a very fixed idea about black tie but there are also some of us who have more flexible views. Another alternative for him could be a velvet jacket. I would go for stylish look for him after all your dress is...
FTFY
Why would you want to dress the same as your grandfather? This harks back to the concept that styles do not change when they are changing all the time. If people feel safe dressing according to a uniform so be it.You will be horrified to hear that my evening suit is made from black Thai silk has a shawl collar and flapped hacking pockets and that I wear a plain silk shirt with buttons and leather Albert style loafers and no cummerbund!.

Unless it's on the beach or if he tells you not to wear one wear a tie. Either suit is fine I would stick to a white shirt. Point collar for a wedding. Loafers are fine but wear socks for a wedding. And not some heavy weight boat shoe sized loafer but a slim dress one if you have to.
Sometimes today with 3 piece suits they lengthen the waistcoat to make up for the modern style of "hipster" trousers. If you are getting a 3 piece they look best with a shorter waistcoat which means a higher rise trouser which may look less fashionable if worn as a two piece. Just something to consider.
