Even though you say it is an informal wedding, wear a plain tie - if you really wanted to keep it casual, a navy plain knit. As for the pocket square (assuming you wear a tie) plain white cotton in tv-fold.
Summer suit - no Summer casual odd-trousers - if you want As for going sockless, only with casual odd-trousers (in my opinion); looks silly with suits
In the last 6 weeks I have had three shoes full resoled (with toe segs) by Kokos Crockett & Jones for Kilgour (loafer): also got: repaired inside the heel rear Cheaney for Gieves & Hawkes (oxford): also got: new laces, new insoles Cheaney (derby) - also got: new laces, new insoles, scuffed toes repaired All three cost the same price and were ready within two weeks, they only bad point is that they do not call to confirm the shoes are ready even though they promised this...
A plain shirt would be a lot better, e.g. pale lilac, if you want to avoid plain white and no pocket square
October is enough time for most tailors, ideally order the suit by the end of next month (depending on the tailor); this will allow you to wear the suit a few times before the wedding. If you go mtm, the process will be shorter.
Do a search for Cad & Dandy, Graham Browne, etc and from the threads you will find many options in London (mtm bespoke) that are within your budget. What is your time frame?
Dege & Skinner Although Gieves are military tailors, they do not have a set house style but have a similar style to Poole. They can do a military cut, if requested. As mentioned above M&M and W&J are military tailors; however, Huntsman are not in the same bracket.
Barker's are a good starting point if you want to minimise your spending. The construction is ok; however, Cheaney, Church's and C&J are better in leather and construction.
Simple task, walk down Jermyn Street and look at the shoe shoes and then go look at Oliver Sweeney shoes, you will change your own mind - Barkers, Church's, both Crockett & Jones shops, Edward Green, Foster & son, John Lobb and Tricker's.
