    I hardly ever wear suits so sometimes it's hard to tell what is appropriate or what looks good. I'm going to a wedding in a few weeks and need help choosing a tie. Below are the pictures.

    The suit I am wearing is charcoal grey with a light blue shirt and black shoes. If these are not the best color/pattern ties to wear, what are your suggestions?

    The blue necktie would look best in that blue dress shirt. :)

    Sure thing. I'll do that tomorrow as the lighting here at 9pm isn't very good. Also, I can only get a hold of one of the ties.

    Neither of those are particularly good for a wedding, but between the two, I'd recommend #2. The first is a knit tie, which is much too casual for a wedding, especially if you're also wearing a charcoal suit and black dress shoes.

    If you can, however, spring for a lighter grey tie, something that contrasts to your charcoal suit, and has a small pattern, like shepards check, puppytooth, or glen plaid. Wear this with your charcoal suit, a white dress shirt, and black dress shoes. A white shirt in this case would be better since you're going to a formal event. You can throw in a white pocket square if you wish.
