For a wedding I would change the grey shirt for a white one and combine it with a light grey (or faux-grey, for example PoW check) tie. With a white or cream silk pocket square you are good to go. A grey shirt with a black tie may look "cooler" to certain people when you are going out in the evening but a wedding is a more formal and dignified occasion and "cool" is not what you want to look like there.

That shirt should not be worn with a tie. It is fine for casual situations if you like that color but has no business in a formal outfit. The poster above said it well, though I'd greatly prefer a white linen pocket square to cream silk.
