    brown skin goes with most things, especially white shirts... but shirt and tie combo depends on the suit colour etc.
    we need more details to be able to help you

    I'd advise against a black suit for a wedding, unless you're also celebrating the death of bachelorhood.

    some people here dislike black suits, personally i like them, and out there in the 'real world' nobody will bat an eye. i'd say the outfit you have in mind will look good with your colouring. enjoy the occasion!

    White shirt and purple tie is certainly a good combination. If your best looking suit is black, I would go for it.

    Lighter hues look good on brown skin. I see a lot of beiges or creams now,e specially since its summer.

    ^^^ That

    but otherwise, if its a formal wedding and you are supposed to dress formally, then a black suit is appropriate - and one of the few times where it is other than a gala, ballroom dinner, 'black tie' event, or funeral.
