For a first commission, go with a classical cut - 3 roll 2 for example - mid grey suit - if you are set on Dugdale's have the New Fine Worsteds (on the lighter side, but better for a 9 months suit in subtropical Australia, something like 8961, a good mid grey.
In France you will have 2 separate ceremonies - etat civil (city hall) and religious (if you want). The marriage certificate will be issued only by the etat civil, so take care. Normally, at the etat civil people will be dressed in gray suits or other lounge (it normally takes place in the morning) so a tuxedo will be an overkill for sure. Check that please, and the technical delays - you should place the "bans de marriage", etc. if you are not doing it at the Australian...

Chinese mob, sorry to say!
First rule of bespoke - do not micro manage your tailor (he/she knows better than you what can be done)! Second rule of bespoke - for the first commission KISS (keep it simple)!
