If the wedding is during the day-time then a tux would be a bad option anyway. A 3-piece is certainly one possible alternative, or just a grey or navy suit.

Black is perfectly good with a blue suit. If we were talking about everyday wear then brown is certainly more versatile than black, but for an especially formal occasion like a wedding black would be the more correct choice, though brown may be fine too depending what everyone else is wearing.Also, are you an American?
