    I've been Googling only to find mixed results around light grey suits and brown shoes at weddings. I think it depends on the exact combo, so I figured posting a picture was easiest.

    Keep in mind, this wedding is a college friend who is 27 (mostly young mid-twenties at the wedding), it is this weekend in Lake Tahoe (early spring) and starts at 4pm. It is worth mentioning that the wedding is inside, as it will be potentially snowing in Tahoe this weekend.

    I think the light grey and brown look great, but wondering if I should go with a solid blue shirt vs. the white/blue stripe. I am thinking about skipping the tie.

    Wear a tie unless someone in the wedding told you not to. For Tahoe, this is probably fine, if the grey is a medium grey as it seems in the pic. If it were really a light grey, I'd say no. In any case, a darker suit, black shoes, and a white shirt would be better. Given the suit and shoes, I'd say solid blue is better than the checked thing.

    This.

    You should also avoid wearing a suit without a tie generally in life. If you must go tie-less, wear an odd jacket and trousers instead of a suit. But for a wedding, a suit and tie are better unless you've been told to leave the tie at home.
