Thanks man, never even thought about that combination.

Neither of the combinations you offered really appeal to me. In No. 1, the pairing of a dark blue shirt with slightly different shade of dark blue pants is just awful. In No. 2, well, wearing a black shirt to a wedding doesn't strike me as a great choice.
Of the footwear choices, the shoes are likely the least bad option, although I can't really tell much about the shoes from the small picture.
BTW, in your post you mention suits. The implication being, if you owned a suit and didn't dislike suits, a suit would be a reasonable thing to wear to the wedding in question. Such being the case, I've got to tell you that if it's a wedding where the other men will be wearing suits, it's a shame that you can't wear one, too. Individuality can be a fine thing, but that doesn't mean it's always the best choice. (Sometimes, when the rest of the orchestra is playing Mozart, it can be a good idea to play Mozart, too. Even if you're not a big fan of Mozart, and would be more comfortable playing Gershwin.)
Thanks man, I absolutely understand your point. It is definitely time to buy a good suit, but I simply have no time before friday. And the shoes were some standard dress shoes I googled. Here are my real dress shoes I just photographed:
These are my exact beige boots.
These are quite similar to my grey boots
Would you still go for the dress shoes?
