Another thing to think about (and these are just my personal biases): if the wedding is in the daytime, opt for charcoal; if at night, for midnight. If charcoal, get the suit SB with a DB vest. If midnight, DB two piece.
Should the DB vest match the charcoal suit? Or is a white vest appropriate for wedding? Also, what's a double-breasted two-piece?
And what sort of tie, and in what color, should I buy?
