Need help with charcoal jacket I'm wearing to wedding. It will be on Television

I just bought a $200 charcoal jacket which fits me well. It has a knotch lapel, 2 buttons, and a double vent. I would like to get it tailored ASAP but I don't know if it's gonna work. The shoulders and chest could be taken in but dont have to be and I would like the sleeve taken up 1/4 of an inch so the undershirt could show a little for contrast, but the wedding is Sunday and I dont have much time.

I wanted to know if I could first off wear charcoal to a wedding. And if I can, what color slacks, shoes, tie should I wear. I have a black tie and dark gray undershirt which matches thin stripes on the tie and black shoes with black belt- silver buckle, black leather watch with silver trim. But can black slacks go with the dark charcoal jacket? Could I get black with gray pinstripes to match undershirt? Kind of in a jam and don't have alot of time.

I can start over with the whole outfit but I really like the jacket. Should I exchange the jacket and try and find a black one that is similar style or can I work with this one? This wedding is going to be on MTV next spring and I want to look good.
