I guess the question isnt whether such suit will look good/bad, but the tastefullness level of it, in context within its own flashiness.
If you saw a guy like on the DQ front page, with his bride described above....would you think "ugh, he shouldnt have worn that suit to his wedding"?
Completely depends. My concern would be that the DQ suit has the potential to veer into camp or at least excessive flashiness (although it also could look very good - it's a question of context and presentation). Assuming some basic adherence to traditional values, the center of attention should be her dress, not his suit. If they made a collective decision to wear loud, flashy, or campy clothes such that his outfit was "consistent" with hers, that would be one thing. But it sounds like her dress, while not a traditional wedding dress, will be far from loud or flashy. Accordingly, I'd say your friend probably should eschew the stripes and go with something more understated.
